Ingredients

Dressing

  • 1 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  • 1 (8-oz.) container nonfat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Salad

  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 cups thinly sliced celery
  • 1 cup halved red seedless grapes
  • 1 (8-oz.) can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 8 oz. (2 cups) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In medium bowl, combine all dressing ingredients; blend well. Set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, combine chicken, celery, grapes, pineapple and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese; toss gently to mix. Pour dressing over chicken mixture; mix gently. Spoon evenly into sprayed baking dish.
  • 3
    In small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup cheese, bread crumbs and margarine; mix well. Sprinkle over chicken mixture. Top with almonds.
  • 4
    Bake at 325°F. for 35 to 45 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  • 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.
