Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad for a Crowd

The best chicken salad recipe for entertaining.



  1. Whisk together, the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper and lemon juice (use the smaller amount of salt and lemon juice to start).
  2. Stir in chicken, celery, apples, and Craisins. Taste for seasonings and add more salt and lemon juice if needed. Refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavors meld.
  3. Serve as a salad over a crisp lettuce leaf or as a sandwich on a bun or croissant.


Servings depend on the size of your rolls or croissants and what else is being served at your brunch, picnic or luncheon.
