Tropical Chicken Salad

I just had this at a Bridal Shower I went to over the weekend! It was delicious! I got the recipe and I had to share it!

3 C. Diced Cooked Chicken
1 C. Chopped Celery
1/2 C. Chopped green and red bell peppers
1 15oz can of pineapple chunks
1 11oz can of mandarin oranges
2 Tablespoon grated onion
1 C. mayonaise
1/4 C. orange juice concentrate
1/2 C. Sliced Almonds
1-2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
1 (5oz) chow mein noodles

Drain the pineapple and oranges. In a large bowl combine cooked chicken, pineapple, celery, oranges,peppers, onion, and almonds. Blend mayonaise, orange juice, and mustard; toss gently with chicken mixture. Cover and chill overnight. Just before serving, mix in chow mein noodles and serve on top of lettuce leaf. (I left the chow mein noodles off to the side in a bowl so they could be put on top if people wanted them or left off. This also allowed them to stay crunchy instead of becoming soggy.

Serves 8
