Chutney Chicken Salad

I just love making cold salads for dinner during these warm summer months.  They are easy to prepare and this salad can be made in advance, as a matter of fact, this salad is better when made early in the day.  The flavors blend after being refrigerated covered for 4 hours or overnight.  This is a great salad to serve with a glass of chilled white wine.  That is my type of summer dinner!
