Chicken Salad

2 1/2 cups cooked chicken, diced
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
1 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons finely minced or grated onion, or more
1 teaspoon salt
white pepper to taste
other seasonings to taste
3/4 to 1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped with 2 teaspoons sugar
crisp lettuce or other greens

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, and mix thoroughly.
Chill. Serve on crisp lettuce or other greens.

NOTES: I like to season a whole chicken (or chicken breasts) with
poultry seasoning, salt, white pepper and onion powder, cover it
with water, add a whole bay leaf, and simmer it until tender. I
let it cool in its own broth then debone it and dice it. This
tastes far better than canned chicken.

You may add extra minced or grated onion to suit your taste. The
heavy cream may be whipped with or without the sugar. I think the
sugar added to the whipped cream makes this salad taste great, but
again the choice is yours.

Using a mixture of red and green seedless grapes gives this salad
a pretty color.
