Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Rated as 4.74 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great sandwich filling that they make at the diner in the hospital where I work, but I fancied it up a bit with some green onions and pecans. A great way to use up leftover chicken. Delicious!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix together the chicken and mayonnaise in a bowl, stir to coat well, then stir in the green onions, dried cranberries, apple, pecans, lime juice, salt, pepper, and dill weed. Serve immediately, or refrigerate several hours or overnight (the flavor just gets better).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • Use 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill instead of the dried dill.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
