Regal Chicken Salad

This is another of the recipes I found in the treasure trove of the old recipe box

4  Cups diced cooked Chicken
1  4 oz. can of pineapple tidbits - drain and reserve the juice
2 Cups Seedless Grapes - sliced in half
1 Cup Chopped Celery
2/3 cups chopped nuts - use peanuts or cashews
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1  Cup Mayonnaise
2  Tablespoons Lemon Juice - Fresh not that icky bottled type!
2 Tablespoons juice from pineapple

combine the chicken, pineapple, grapes celery, and nuts.   In a separate bowl combine the rest of ingredients and whisk until smooth.  Fold into the chicken mixture.  chill for at least one hour - serve in lettuce cups
