This is a recipe I discovered by accident. While trying to make the Betty Crocker® chicken salad, I discovered I didn't have all the spices. '...quick, what can I substitute...' This has been a family favorite ever since.

Easy and delicious - plus it's a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken! I cut the recipe in half since I didn't have pecans I subbed toasted walnuts instead. I used a Red Delicious Apple and I also threw in just a bit of chopped celery and some dried cranberries. I mixed the dressing in a separate bowl before folding it into the chicken and other ingredients. For the dressing I used Hellman's light mayo and cut it with a bit of reduced fat sour cream. I used half apple pie spice and half curry powder along with a bit of salt and pepper. It chilled for just a couple of hours and it came out really good. Overall, a great combination of flavors!

What makes this unique is the apple pie spice which I mixed with mayo (actually used Miracle Whip Light). I halved the recipe, but liked the flavor of the spice so much, I used a full 1/2 teaspoon plus. This takes no time to put together, and I would serve this to company with no qualms at all. It tastes good, and the presentation is lovely.

Hello... This is jo1527, JO. I tried to edit the recipe but couldn't. I failed to put in the fact what many have figured out. The apple pie spice and mayo are in fact mixed together first before adding to the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy!
