Expert Tips

Hot chicken salads were popular in the '70s. We've updated this recipe for the '90's by using light mayonnaise and nonfat sour cream. Pineapple and grapes add a sweet new twist to this old favorite.

Nonfat sour cream contains thickeners which keep it from separating and becoming watery in heated mixtures.

The reduced-calorie mayonnaise and nonfat sour cream in this recipe cut about 18 grams of fat from each serving.
