Recipe Notes

  • You could add any fruit you like, from dried cranberries to chopped pineapple.
  • Be sure to cut the grapes in half, especially if kids will be eating this chicken salad. Whole grapes are a choking hazard.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the chicken, celery, grapes, pecans and yogurt in a bowl. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Sprinkle with poppy seeds, if using. Serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.
