Chicken Salad

The other day I was out having lunch with a friend. It was so nice catching up with her! She ordered the awful chicken salad wrap! It was COVERED in mayonnaise……so gross! I could barely watch her as she ate it. After watching her eat this disgusting wrap, I decided that I could make a WAY better and somewhat healthier version! This is a super easy recipe that will please any crowd!

Ingredients
  • 3-4 cups rotisserie chicken , chopped
  • ½ cup toasted pecans
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 medium crisp apple, chopped
  • 1 cup red grapes, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ lemon, juiced approximately 2-3 tablespoons
  • ¼ - ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ tablespoon salt, to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 bread buns or tortillas
Instructions
  1. In a small frying pan, toast the pecans at a low heat. Check on them constantly to make sure they don’t burn. I also like to add a sprinkle of sugar to give them a sweet taste. After they have cooled chop them and add to chicken mixture.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together; chicken, celery, green onions, apple, lemon zest, lemon juice, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Toss until everything is well coated.
  3. Lastly add the grapes and give one more quick toss. Serve on bread buns, or tortillas with a side of chips.
  4. Saucy Says: This is great for any picnic or shower lunch. It’s very easy to make and serve! Enjoy!
