  • 2 chicken breasts - grilled or 2-3 cups rotisserie chicken meat cut into bite-size cubes
  • salt - to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper - to taste
  • 1 cup cashews - toasted
  • 1 cup firm grapes – cut in half
  • 1 crisp apple – Gala or Granny Smith work well
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Hellman’s regular or low-fat mayonnaise
  • Parissien Herb or fresh herbs if available - to taste
  • salt & pepper - to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Prepare coals for grilling.
  3. Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel.
  4. Brush chicken breasts with canola or olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with ground black pepper (as much or little as you like - I like a lot)
  6. Sprinkle the chicken breasts lightly with kosher salt.
  7. When coals are ready, place chicken breasts on the grill over the hot coals and cook - turning every 3-4 minutes and approximately 15-20 minutes or until juices run clear.
  8. Take the chicken off the grill and let it rests for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, cut the chicken into bite-size pieces.
  9. While chicken is cooking - place cashews on a baking sheet and cook 5-10 minutes until fragrant and darker gold in color. Watch closely so they don't burn.
  10. Take the cashews out of the oven and let cool.
  11. In a medium bowl, place all ingredients and gently mix until well combined.
  12. Serve on a bed of lettuce, as a sandwich or as a dip.
  13. Enjoy!
