Sweet and Tangy Chicken

I remember the day Angela told me the menu she’d planned for our church Share Group meal. The entree was a chicken recipe she’d recently tried and she and her family were crazy about it. Of course, I couldn’t wait to get the recipe details.

She explained that you need but a few simple, ordinary ingredients to make a sauce for the chicken that’s indescribably delicious. Yes, those words were used in a famous candy advertisement but they were the words she used.


2/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 cups diced cooked chicken
2 red apples, cored &,diced
2/3 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the chicken, apples and celery. Toss to coat. Cover and chill. Sprinkle with walnuts just before serving.
