Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Favorite Chicken Salad (Carol Reed)

4 c cooked chicken, cut up
1 c sliced celery
1/3 c chopped onion
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 c diced almonds
1 can water chestnuts, chopped
1/3 c mayonnaise
1 c seedless green grapes, halved

Toss all ingredients. Cover and chill. Serve in pita bread or on croissant rolls. Can be served over lettuce leafs.

(Carol's suggestions: I always add the mayo last and add less than it calls for. I stir it all up and then see if it needs more. It is so easy to overdo it on the mayo. Sometimes I leave out the grapes because people think they are weird. And it is really good if you substitute cashew halves for the almonds. That is my favorite recipe yet! (Oh, and we love it on croissants the most!)
