Chicken Salad with Grapes and Pecans Recipe

 

Serve this fruity, nutty chicken salad with assorted crackers and grapes for a filling lunch or a delicious brunch.  The recipe was inspired by a favorite dish served at the former Sweetbriar Restaurant in Gadsden, Alabama. 

Ingredients

1/2 cup light or regular mayonnaise

1/2 cup light or regular sour cream

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 pounds skinned and boned chicken breasts, cooked and chopped

3 cups red and white seedless grapes, halved

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Lettuce leaves (optional)

Stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add chopped chicken and grapes, tossing gently to coat.

Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Stir in pecans just before serving. Serve in stemware lined with lettuce leaves, if desired. Makes 4 servings.

My sister, Wynne Roos, made this comment on the recipe:  I've made a similar recipe with Craisins and pecans.  A dash of poultry seasoning enhances the flavor.  I haven't tried adding lemon juice and sour cream.  Bet that's good.
