Rice-a-Roni Salad

Sounds a little strange, but I think it is really yummy! Plus it makes a ton and tastes even better the next day.

1 box chicken flavor rice-a-roni (make according to package directions)
1 can water chestnuts, chopped
2 cups grapes, halved (I like red grapes for this)
1 cup raisins
4 large chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
4 apples, diced (I usually use a fuji-type apple)
toasted slivered almonds (optional)
1/2 cup light mayo
1 bunch green onions, sliced (I think I use about 4 onions)

Let rice-a-roni cool and then mix all ingredients together. Keep refrigerated. (It is good without the chicken too.)
