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.
