CN's Cashew Chicken Salad Recipe

This just might become my new favorite chicken salad. Since CN has given it to me I have made it over and over again. I love that it is heavy on celery yet doesn't taste like it is. She calls for cooking chicken but I cheated and purchased a rotisserie chicken breast. I made a batch and we had it for lunch, I sent it to work with the Fireman, it was leftovers for the next day and it was amazing. This will become a summer favorite.

CN's Chicken Cashew Salad Recipe
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
7 stalks (ribs) of celery
1 big bunch of grapes ( you can use red or green or both)
1 can cashew pieces
2 TB mayonnaise
Lawry's season salt

Here's what you need. Again I cheated on the chicken. But if you didn't cheat with the chicken you would cook it in some oil with a little seasoning and once cooled add to the bowl.
Come on Momma! Share some of that chicken!! I'm a growing boy! My sister Lucy is sleeping!!
Star by dicing up the celery. Maybe eat a couple stalks while you are chopping. The Fireman keeps telling me that it will lower my blood pressure...
It is a lot of celery but I promise you will love it
Next for the grapes. These are for the salad. There is a pile off to the side for me.
All halved...
ok time to chop up the chicken.
Into the bowl. Sorry Louie!!
Now for the dressing, it is crazy how easy it is. Take the Mayo and the Lawry's and thin the mixture with a TB or two of water
Then pour over the chicken mixture
Add the cashews and mix. I topped with cashews and held back some for serving so they were crunchy.
Amazingly good!
