XL Chicken Salad

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Mandy long before she married my brother. Because it makes so much, it's perfect for any kind of large get-together!

Chicken Salad
(for 300 small crossiant sandwiches)

8 lbs cooked chicken cut into cubes (canned Costco chicken works too)
3 bunches green onions chopped
Green grapes cut in half (how many? until you are sick of cutting them up)
4 c. cashews (I never include these)
5 cans water chestnuts chopped
1 bunch of celery diced

2 c. Miracle Whip
2 c. Mayo
1 c. canned milk
1 t. dry mustard
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 pkg ranch dressing

Mix everything up, and let it chill over night.


  1. Yum. I might make this when my family is here.

  2. Love the new blog layout/design!

  3. Thanks! Thank heavens for friends you can trust your password to that have computer talents. Now I just have to talk Josh into thinking stripes are ok on Blogs and curtains....

  4. Great recipe Poiette! I am going to make them tonight! (Not 300 though!)

  5. This sounds wonderful! I'm going to have to try it, although I'll try cutting it in half. :)
