I bought a lot of seedless green grapes. They were on sale for 99 cents a pound, bought 5 lbs...sshhhh... i know!!!!  I got so excited only to realize we (Husband and I) can only eat so much of these humongous sweet crunchy green grapes  ;).

So, i went to my fridge and check what else can i do with them aside from eating them as it is, which is just fine because they are sweet, but really i bought so much. Anyways, back to my fridge, i have all the ingredients for chicken salad. I had the a-ha! moment....and thought of CHICKEN VERONIQUE...

What a great excuse to make a fancy chicken salad. I love this salad served with green leaf lettuce or with bread. I tried doing a wrap since i have some tortillas in the fridge also. Wrap worked out so good as well, give it a try.


Just wanted to show how huge these grapes big as the soup spoon ;)

2 lbs. chicken breasts (boiled or roasted) ***
1/3 cup chopped celery
1 ½  cup green seedless grapes, halved ( it will depend on the size of the grapes, you can add more if you want)
1/3 cup roasted skinless almonds (chopped or slivered)
1/4 cup craisins (optional)
1 cup mayonnaise (add more to make a creamier salad)
2 tablespoon white vinegar ( I used white balsamic)
2 tablespoons honey
salt & pepper

*** Store bought rotisserie chicken (use the breast only) or
*** boil chicken with S&P, celery, onions and water, bring to a boil until chicken is cook. Let chicken cool down.

Cut chicken breasts into small dice.
 In a large bowl, combine chicken, celery, grapes, almonds and craisins.
 In another bowl mix together mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. This will be your dressing.
Fold and toss in the dressing over chicken mixture to coat.
Let this chill in the fridge for an hour, so flavor can set.
Serve as is or w/ croissant or wrap
