Cooked chicken, red grapes, slivered almonds, and pineapple chunks make a lovely savory-sweet salad that's dressed with a mild curry mayonnaise. Papaya and avocado slices add color and flavor. Refrigerate overnight for the best flavor.

This is an excellent recipe and does taste better if chilled overnight. Using a rotisserie chicken makes the recipe SO easy. I have also added a large can of pineapple chunks drained. Served on a large platter with papaya and avocado it makes a nice luncheon entree. Read More

Excellent recipe even if you skip many of the ingredients. I often do a plain chicken/papaya version during the week. So unique easy quick prep and versatile I have had this for breaky lunch and dinner and never tire of it. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly with only one omission: I did not have any papaya. I often add curry to my chicken salad but not this much. I will cut back on the curry to 1/2 tsp if I make this again. I like chicken salad with grapes but I don't think the avocado added much and I love avocado. IMHO the sweetness of the fruit was not enhanced by the avocado or vice versa. I would like to try this again with the papaya leave off the avocado and cut back on the curry. I will also omit the water chestnuts since there was plenty of crunch from the almonds and the celery.
