EXPERT TIPS

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.
