I made chicken stock yesterday with a family size package of wings that I roasted first, and then simmered. So...what to do with the meat - which already has a slight celery flavor from being boiled with the stock? Make my version of a retro Waldorf Salad since I had red seedless grapes to use up and a bowl of fresh, fall apples from the Farmer's Market on the counter.

In This Recipe
Chop the chicken, celery, apple, grapes, and walnuts and place in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and correct for taste. You can add more or less mayo, chutney, lemon juice, curry - it's up to you.
Pour the dressing over the other ingredients and mix well.
Serve it as is, on a bed of lettuce, in a sandwich - makes a healthy lunch!
