Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breast s or 1 pound left over cooked chicken
  • 3 ribs celery sliced
  • 1 cup walnuts - pecans, and almonds also work well
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries or craisins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Instructions

  • If you don't already have cooked chicken available, you can poach the poultry in water or chicken broth. Poach chicken breasts by placing in a pot, and covering with water or broth, cook over medium heat for approximately 30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Remove chicken from water, and when cool enough to touch shred the chicken breasts and place into a bowl.
  •  In a medium-sized bowl add sliced celery, nuts, dried fruit, and mayonnaise. Stir to combine the mixture well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Store in a covered container for up to 3 days before serving.

Recipe Tips

 In a medium-sized bowl add sliced celery, nuts, dried fruit, and mayonnaise. Stir to combine the mixture well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Store in a covered container for up to 3 days before serving. This Chicken Salad can be served on a bed of lettuce or served in fancy rolls, or even on plain bread. I personally love to serve this chicken salad with a nice bowl of soup. I don't think you can beat that soup and sandwich combination.
