  • 1 cup pecan halves (about 3 ounces), broken in half lengthwise
  • 1 whole roasted chicken (about 3 pounds), skin removed
  • 8 scallions, white and light-green parts only, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, strings removed and thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces lady apples (about 4), or Fuji apples (about 2 medium), cored and sliced into bite-size pieces
  • 5 tablespoons golden or dark raisins
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Sour Cream Dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast in oven until fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool completely.

  2. Pull chicken from the bone; discard bones, and cut meat into 3/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a medium bowl; add scallions, celery, apples, raisins, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Add dressing; toss to combine. Chill, covered, until ready to serve.
