Fancy enough for a dinner party. This recipe can be prepared on a moment's notice if you just keep the ingredients on hand. My family loves it and guests think I'm a gourmet cook!


You can easily add a couple more chicken breasts if you need to stretch it a little.

This is different because it uses popcorn! Mix mayonnaise, chopped onion, chopped celery, cheddar cheese, and sugar together in a large bowl and chill for a couple of hours. When you are ready to serve the salad, add the bag of microwave popcorn.
