    CHICKEN SALAD w/Grapes & Cool Whip

    Source of Recipe

    This is from my mother.

    Recipe Introduction

    Very good salad and it makes a lot. Serves 6 to 8 people or more, depending how much you like it.

    List of Ingredients

    • 2 cups diced chicken (2 or 3) medium sized breasts, baked
    • 1 cup green grapes
    • 1/2 cup chopped celery
    • 1/2 can mandarin oranges
    • 1/4 cup cashews or slivered almonds
    • 1 small box of macaroni rings
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 cup Cool Whip
    • 1/2 Tbsp minced onion
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/8 cup lemon juice
    • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    • 1/2 tsp mustard


    1. Bake the chicken as you normally would and cut up into bite sized pieces.
    2. Cook the macaroni rings according to package, using half or the whole box.
    3. Combine the mayo, mustard and Cool Whip in another bowl.
    4. Mix with macaroni rings, grapes, celery, oranges and chicken. Combine with the marinated chicken and mix well. Chill for a few hours, covered.
    5. Just before serving, top with the cashews.

    Final Comments

    It's not totally necessary to marinate the chicken, but it gives the chicken a better taste.
