Sweet & Spicy Chicken on Sort of Waldorf Salad

Home / Recipes / Chicken / Sweet & Spicy Chicken on Sort of Waldorf Salad

Another Summer essential of mine, is Salad. I love it in every way, shape and form. I usually add grilled chicken to ours to make it more of a Substantial meal but even without it most salads are GREAT. Last night I knew  I wanted to make salad and I had Pecans, Granny Smith Apples and the usual salad stuff, so I decided to do a bit of a Ally-Style Waldorf. I unfortunately had no celery but it didn’t matter…this was GREAT. The Pecans, Apples and tangy mayo dressing worked PERFECTLY with the spicy chicken. Perfect Summer Supper.
