  • 3 cups cooked, chopped chicken (2-3 chicken thighs or breasts - use leftover chicken or see notes to poach)
  • 3 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red grapes
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed black pepper


  • Add all of the ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and stir well.
  • Season, to taste with salt and pepper
  • Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.


If you are going to poach the chicken, here's what you do...
Place the chicken in a single layer on the bottom of a pot. Sprinkle the salt over the top.
Cover the chicken with water. Pour in enough cool water to cover the chicken by an inch or two.
Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
Remove the chicken from the pot and place it on a cutting board to cool.
