Cooking time: 5minutes
- 4 cups cooked, chopped chicken
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup red seedless grapes halved
- 1/2 cup dried cherries
- 1/2 cup roasted pecans, chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise or Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- celery leaves chopped (optional)
How To Prepare
Add chopped chicken to a large bowl along with celery, grapes, dried cherries, chopped pecans, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
If using chopped celery leaves, add these as well. Stir together until just combined.
To lighten up the recipe, you can use Greek yogurt in place of the mayonnaise.
I used plain Greek Yogurt for the nutrition calculations.
