Well, friends. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich from a restaurant once without realizing it’d come packed with grapes and now I’m positively hooked.

Especially if you smear it all up in a croissant. Perfect lunch, if you ask me!
How to make this chicken salad recipe with grapes:
We’ll start with some already cooked and shredded chicken. You can use a rotisserie chicken or start with my crockpot shredded chicken.
Add your chicken, grapes, celery, pecans, and red onion to a mixing bowl and then top it off with a dollop of mayonnaise. You could use Greek yogurt if you prefer.
Sprinkle on some fresh parsley, salt, and pepper.
Stir this mixture together to combine.
I like to let my chicken salad hang out in the fridge for an hour or so before eating, but it’s totally fine to dig in right away if you’re in a rush.
This chicken salad with grapes is seriously so good on a nice buttery croissant. I’ve also been known to scoop it up with Ritz crackers and eat it that way.
