Grilled Chicken Salad

My husband cooks too from time to time ... he enjoys cooking on the grill and does an awesome job with homemade barbecue sauce, ribs, steaks and more! But, probably the one thing we all love the most is his grilled chicken salad. Chicken tenders, spiced and grilled to perfection, then chopped/diced and mixed with all his special yumminess makes this awesome chicken salad.

1-2 chicken breasts, cut off the bone and into thick strips
1 tsp garlic powder, divided
1 tsp course-ground black pepper, divided
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 stalk celery, minced
1/2 medium onion, minced
1/2 tsp celery seed
diced apples or chopped grapes (optional)

Grill chicken until cooked through dusting both sides with 1/2 tsp garlic and 1/2 tsp course-ground black pepper. Allow to cool, then dice finely.

In a large bowl, mix diced chicken, 1/2 stalk celery, minced, 1/2 med onion minced, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp celery seed, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp course-ground black pepper; mix thoroughly until combined. Stir in diced apples or grapes if using and mix well.

Chill until ready to serve.

Serves: 4-6
