Honey Pecan Chicken Salad
A round of applause for our guest blogger today, can't wait to try this recipe she recommends!
I have eaten lots and lots of chicken in it's many forms over the last 19 years...no, I'm not a food critic nor am I an executive in a major corporation...I am a military spouse.:)
This is by far my absolute favorite chicken salad recipe!!! You cannot go wrong with this. For special occasions put the salad inside a puff pastry or between a croissant...so yuummy!
