In large bowl combine chicken, grapes, celery, onions, eggs. In another bowl, combine the next 9 ingredients; stir until smooth. Pour over chicken mixture & toss gently. Stir in almonds & serve immediately, or refrigerate & add almonds right before serving. Garnish with kiwifruit if desired.
In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients & blend well. Add chicken & toss to coat. Stir in grapes, peas, peaches & pecans. Serve in lettuce lined bowl if desired.
Drain pineapple and raspberries, reserving juices. Place fruit in a large bowl; set aside. Add enough water to the juice to measure 1 cup. Pour into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Pour over fruit mixture. Add the applesauce and pecans. Pour into a 1-qt. bowl. Chill until set. Spoon into individual dessert dishes; top with a dollop of mayonnaise if desired. Yields: 6 servings
Peel apples, cut in half and core. Place in a baking dish, cut side up, with about an 1/8 inch of water in the bottom of the dish. Place about 1/2 Tbls. of butter in the center of each apple. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 350 F for 30-40 minutes or until fork inserts easily. (Turn over about 20 minutes into baking for about 15 minutes, turn back over and fill center with juices in the bottom of the dish, finish baking). Remove from oven and set aside. In saucepan bring flour, sugar and milk to a boil over medium heat (it will be thick) stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir well. Pour over apples and sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg if you desire. Serve hot or let cool some.
TIP: If I don't have a lot of time to make these I cut the apples into quarters and just top with butter. OR I use the microwave and omit the water in the bottom of the pan.
