Recipe Ingredients for Pecan Chicken Salad

4 chicken breast
3 cups water
1 chicken bouillon cube
2 cups seedless grapes
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
1 cup diced celery
1 cup chopped dill
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise

Recipe Directions for Pecan Chicken Salad

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer in a shallow pan.

  2. Bring the water to a boil and add the bouillon cube. Stir to dissolve. Pour enough bouillon into the baking pan to just cover the chicken. Lay a sheet of foil over the chicken and cook until cooked through; 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the liquid and then discard the liquid.

  3. Shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large bowl. Add the grapes, pecans, celery, and chopped dill and toss well.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix the sour cream and mayo together. Toss with the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Serve on salad greens.
