Chicken Salad

Awhile ago I found this amazing recipe for chicken salad and thought I'd make a batch up today. It's so tasty! Took it to a couple of amazing friends for lunch and didn't have any complaints. One guy did say he wasn't sure about the grapes but after tasting it that he liked it. So, if you are not sure about the grapes... try a bite and add half a grape to it. I promise, unless you absolutely hate grapes, you will love it. I did add toasted almonds to mine too...  

3 cooked chicken breasts, chopped
1 or stalks celery, chopped- about 3/4 cup
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup seedless grapes, halved
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup salad dressing, such as Miracle Whip brand
2 Tablespoons coleslaw dressing (Marzetti's is good)
1 teaspoon each- paprika and seasoning salt
Coarsely ground black pepper, to taste

Simply mix everything together well. Chill for at least one hour before serving. It tastes much better if allowed to chill overnight. 

I didn't follow the exact measurements. I add to my taste. I did use a rotisserie chicken in place of the 3 chicken breast. Add the mayo slowly so you do not add too much. 

Buon Appetito!
