This is my favorite Chicken Salad recipe from the Lion House Entertaining Cookbook. Awesome cookbook!! Im not much of an entertainer so this helps me :)
2 cups shredded chicken (or cubed)
3/4 c diced celery
1/4 t salt
1 c grapes (I used diced apples)
4 ounces cashews (I used chopped almonds)
1 16 ounce can of chunk or crushed pineapple, drained
1 c whipped topping
1/2 c mayonnaise
1 t lemon juice
12 6-inch pita breads, halved (I used sandwich thins)
Combine chicken, celery, salt, grapes, pineapple and nuts in a bowl. In smaller bowl mix whipped topping, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Mix altogether and spoon into bread.
I've tried many chicken salad recipes and this is the only one that sticks around, plus most of the ingredients we always have in the house...except for the whipped topping.
