pecan chicken salad.

andrea gave me the "recipe" to the chicken salad that she usually makes.
it is inspired by the arbys version.
i say recipe using it loosely, because it is one of those things you kind of keep throwing together, till it looks right. (i apologize to those who can't handle that style of cooking. i am right there with you, liking exacts. but this is something that you can't really mess up. if you like a lot of grapes, add more. not that many pecans? only add a small amount. it is up to your taste!)
peacan chicken salad

chicken. cooked, seasoned to your tastes (i used garlic salt + whatever else i felt like), cooled, & chopped. (i used about 1 lb)
mayo (i used about 3/4 cup)
diced apples (i used about 1/2 a large apple)
grapes sliced in half (i used a large handful, grapes are hard to hold. so probably two handfuls.)
chopped celery (about 4 stalks)
pecan pieces (about 1/2 cup)

mix all the ingredients together. 
serve on romaine lettuce either in a wrap or as a sandwich!
