My husband loves chicken salad. I mean looooovvveeeessss chicken salad. From the poppy seed chicken salad that makes a regular appearance to a grilled chicken salad, he loves it all. And since I llllooooovvvveeee him, I make it for him as much as possible.

But one of his favorite versions involves fruit and tons of chicken. I’m always playing around with different versions of a chicken salad with fruit for him and realized that you might like this recipe, too.

Full of tender chicken, fresh sliced red grapes, celery, roasted pecans, and dried cherries, I’m not sure what wouldn’t be right with this chicken salad recipe.

If the fact that there was none left over was any indication, my sweet husband didn’t think there was anything wrong with it either.

This makes a great salad for lunch, a light supper, and takes hardly any time to mix all together.

And while Bart prefers his chicken salad made with mayonnaise, I love to lighten it with Greek yogurt as well. That option is completely up to you!

  1. How could you forget fresh Dill in this!!!

  2. Very yummy. I used a store bought rotisserie chicken. My teens love this recipe and they’re very picky. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  3. Delicious! I substituted 1/2 cup of chopped apples for the dried cherries, used a little less mayo, and added a tiny squirt of honey. On toast with a little butter, yum! 😋

  4. This was delicious.  I made a couple of alterations.  I used a rotisserie chicken, also, substuted pistacios for the pecans and I used 1/2 plain low fat Greek yogurt and 1/2 regular Mayo.

    Also, I would like to say that it does only take 5 minutes once everything is prepped.  Pulling the chicken off the carcass and chopping it took longer than 5 minutes, not to mention, roasting and chopping the nuts, washing and chopping the celery, washing and halving the grapes and locating and measuring the dried cherries.  In all, it took about an hour to come together.

    It is a nice make ahead dish and a good thing to keep in the fridge for when you get hungry.  I served mine on a croissant with lettuce.  And I had fresh tomatoes on the side.  

    This one is a keeper.

  5. Love the addition of the dried cherries!

  6. I am not much of a cook, BUT, I made this up with craisins I had instead of grapes and Cherries. Used the Pecans! And my husband LOVED it! Going to be a go to on a simple dinner night, or lunch!

  7. Absolutely delicious! Made it exactly as recipe says and I will not be deviating one bit. My sil said only thing wrong was I didn’t make enough! So getting ready to make another batch. 

  8. I did not have any grapes which I usually have but I added diced granny smith apples and of course substituted turkey for chicken this time of year! Thanks

  9. When using rotisserie chicken, do you use the dark meat? In the past, I have only used chicken breast. Thanks.

  10. My bf ‘s comment and I quote “This is the best sandwich I have ever had. ” (I served it on croissants) Absolutely delicious!!
