Curry Chicken Salad

I remember my mom making this chicken salad while I was growing up. It is still a favorite dish and one that I love. It's got lots of good stuff in it that make it good for you.

3 cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, chopped (can boil the chicken in water, salt and pepper or purchase a rotisserie chicken and take the meat off)
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 1/2 - 2 cups seedless red or white grapes that are halved
3/4 cup rough chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise (do not use Miracle Whip)
2 teaspoons curry powder
salt and pepper to taste.

In a medium bowl, stir together the chicken, celery, grapes, nuts, mayonnaise, and curry powder, salt and pepper. Chill for a couple of hours to let the flavors blend together. Add curry powder to taste.
