Fruit and Nut Chicken Salad:

I love Chicken Salad! Pretty much any way it's fixed, but this is possibly my very favorite way!
Eat it with a fork, on a sandwich, with some crackers, tortilla chips...however you would like it!
A lot of people turn their nose up when they find out that there are grapes in the salad, but don't knock it 'till you've tried it, because I promise it's good!!!

3-4 cooked chicken breasts, diced or lightly ground in a food processor (about 4 cups cooked chicken)
1 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup red or green grapes, halved
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds, walnuts or pecans
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tblsp. honey
2 tblsp. mustard
dash or two of pepper

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, celery, onion, grapes and nuts and mix until combined. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, honey, mustard and pepper. Add to chicken mixture and mix until everything is well combined. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve!

-I have made this with or without grapes and both ways are delicious.
-This is great way to use Rotisserie chicken, if you find it on sale (click HERE for a post on Rotisserie Chicken)
