Fabulous Chicken Salad Recipe

     This is a wonderful chicken salad!  It is a combination of several recipes I found.  If possible I would eat it every day!  I will add it to the Recipes #1 page also.

Chicken Salad with Grapes
3 cups diced and chilled, cooked chicken meat (I use 12+ chicken tenders and bake them for 30 min. at 350 degrees.)
1 cup chopped celery 
1-2 cups halved seedless grapes, green or red   (I like lots of grapes!)         
4 green onions, sliced
3/4 cup pecans 
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 cup mayonnaise 
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. lemon juice

Whip cream to peaks, add mayonnaise, brown sugar, lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste.
Pour over rest of ingredients.  Refrigerate several hours, or overnight.  

*It is important to chill the chicken before adding mayonnaise etc. because warm chicken absorbs  the mayo and creates a dry salad.

This is fabulous on croissants!
