Chicken Salad with Craisins, Grapes, Pecans and BACON.

I’m on a “Bacon makes everything better” kick. Seriously. It does.

  • Diced Chicken (we used leftover baked chicken approx 1 large chicken breast & 1 chicken leg cut into large chunks)
  • 1/4- 1/3 c. light mayo
  • 1 stalk celery, finely minced
  • 1 small onion, finely minced
  • 1/4 c. craisins
  • 1/4 c. broken pecan pieces
  • 3/4 c. red grapes, quartered
  • dash of lawrys seasoning
  • dash of dill weed to taste (I probably used 1/4 -1/2 tsp?)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Optional… bacon.

Mix all ingredients (minus bacon) together & let chill overnight. chilling will give the onion and celery time to mellow out just a bit.

Serve on bread or with saltine crackers… We added a bit of crumbled bacon on top for a little extra hit of salt to balance out the sweet craisins/grapes and the tangy mayo.

This was such a light & refreshing meal. Definitely one we’ll make again this summer!!!

  1. Sounds delicious. It’s similar to the chicken salad that Arby’s serves.
