“This recipe is a family favorite. It is based on one from my grandparents and was introduced to me by my dad, who really enjoyed it growing up. Originally a tradition to use the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I've always had it with chicken and can't get enough. This is one recipe that can be easily adjusted, so don't worry if you don't have the exact amounts called for!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a large 4 to 6 quart pot with water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente (about 8 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  2. Drain pasta and add about two tablespoons of the mayonnaise and allow to cool. Mixing well coats the pasta and helps prevent sticking.
  3. Chop the roast chicken into bite-size pieces. Use both white and dark meat for best results.
  4. Chop the celery into quarter-inch pieces, the grapes in half (or quarters if large), and the scallions into thin slices.
  5. Mix all ingredients, adjusting mayonnaise and spices according to your personal preferences and dietary concerns.
