This recipe is Andria Frankfort's go-to chicken salad.
3 cups ¼-inch cubes grilled, roasted or poached chicken (I buy pre-grilled from the prepared section at the grocery store – makes this crazy easy)
¼ cup mayonnaise
½ cup diced celery
2 scallions, finely chopped
½ cup toasted, chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons minced tarragon
1 cup halved, red seedless grapes
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Put the chicken into a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise, celery, scallions and walnuts, and toss to combine everything. Add the tarragon, grapes and salt and pepper, and toss gently. Taste for seasoning – you may want a little more salt and pepper depending on how seasoned your chicken was when you started.
