Are you making this? 
2 each Chicken breast; cubed
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
2 tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoon Curry powder

1 each Shallots; finely diced
1 cup Grapes; halved
1/2 cup Candied Pecan pieces
1 tablespoon Sugar

This is an easy and delicious way to use up leftover chicken. If you prefer, you can substitute chicken breasts with thigh meat.

1. To make your candied pecans, toss 1/2 cup of pecan pieces into a dry saute pan on medium heat. Stir often until the pecans are all warm and starting to toast. Sprinkle 1 TBSP of sugar over the pecans and continue to stir unti lthe sugar melts and coats the pecans thoroughly. Pour the pecans onto a plate to cool. If you plan to store the chicken salad, store the pecans separately and then add them to the salad when you serve it.

2. In a small mixing bowl add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, curry powder, salt, and pepper and stir until well blended. If you like a lot of spice, you can add a bit more curry powder to taste. Add your cubed chicken, diced celery and shallots and halved grapes and stir until mixed. If you plan to serve immediately, add the candied pecans.

I like to serve this salad rolled up in a warm tortilla or crepe. Usually I will add a few baby greens and a sprinkle of goat cheese before I roll it up. You can also serve the curried chicken salad over a bed of greens or in a sandwich on your favorite bread.

This recipe is so good! I didn't have any nuts so I just skipped it & added a tablespoon of sugar. Perfect!Thanks for sharing this recipe, it's a keeper.

This is so outrageously good. I pulled my chicken instead of cubing, added a small amount of sugar to the dressing, and put the celery in the food processor for a few rounds. Then put in a wrap with some romaine lettuce. Almost died from enjoyment.
