Pecan & Grape Chicken Salad

After trying out several chicken salad recipes to find just the right one, this is a mash up of what I liked best from each of them! The recipe calls for cooked chicken; I recommend you boil them for 15 to 20 minutes with 4-5 bay leaves, a few black peppercorns and salt.

1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

6 cups diced, cooked chicken breast meat

(Approximately 6 chicken breasts)
1 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cuos 
halved red grapes

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.

In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, pecans and grapes. Add the mayonnaise mixture, and stir to coat. Chill until serving.
