Best Chicken Salad EVER!

I'm always pressed for time, so I'm always looking for easy make-ahead recipes that are 1) Easy 2) have ingredients that I usually have on hand and 3) are AWESOME. This is a chicken salad recipe that meets all of the above!
I cook my own chicken breast in the oven for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.

I love this food processor, I was able to put the cooked chicken breasts whole and they chopped down to this!

Awesome mix of ingredients: walnuts, grapes, green onions, chopped fresh basil, poppy seed dressing, mayonnaise.

The perfect summer sandwich.
