To make chicken salad, thoroughly cook approximately 1 pound of chicken with a bit of olive oil and some salt and pepper to taste using a grill or skillet. The chicken can also be baked in the oven using a nonstick baking dish. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts work well for this recipe. Shred the chicken using a fork, and allow it to cool completely. Meanwhile, cut 1/2 cup of red grapes into quarters, and finely slice 1/4 cup of celery.
In a large bowl, mix the grapes, celery and 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts with 2/3 cup of mayonnaise, sour cream or plain yogurt. Add salt and pepper to taste, add the cooled chicken, and stir the ingredients until they are thoroughly mixed. Serve the chicken salad between slices of toasted bread, on large croissant rolls or on top of a green salad. Refrigerate leftovers in a sealed container.
