Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves -- (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
1 cup sliced celery
2 cans mandarin oranges -- (11-oz) drained and halved
1 cup seedless green grapes -- halved
2 Tablespoons minced red onion
1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds -- toasted

Dressing: (see note below)
3/4 cup mayonnaise (approx.)
1/3 cup sour cream (approx.)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste

Simmer chicken in water with celery tops, onion, salt, and peppercorns. Remove and cool. Cut into bite-size pieces. Should have about 3 cups.

Combine chicken with first 4 ingredients.

Stir together dressing ingredients. Toss mixtures together lightly. Chill.

Stir almonds in before serving.

Serve in a pretty bowl or in round slices of honeydew melon or in fresh pineapple boats.

Notes : The recipe I based this on called for 1 cup mayo. and 1/2 cup sour cream. I thought this was too much dressing.
