This chicken salad can be made with many different variations of fruit. It is also a hit as a dip when served with Town House crackers! Also try currants in place of the raisins.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Put the chicken in a large pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Allow the chicken to simmer until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Use a pair of forks to remove and shred the meat from the chicken. Discard the remains. Place shredded chicken in a single layer on a plate and allow to cool completely in refrigerator, about 15 minutes.

  • Stir together the salad dressing and sugar in a large bowl. Stir the chicken and raisins into the salad dressing. Add the mango and gently fold into the mixture. Refrigerate overnight or 8 hours before serving.

This is very good without the mango too. I often make it with just the raisins as the fruit. I will often use seedless grapes walnuts and celery instead. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I used what I had on hand-substituted the sugar and raisins for cranberry sauce. Also used frozen chunks of mango-you can get it from Sams club reasonably. Read More

Easy to make but for some reason I didn't care for this. Read More
