How To Make Classic Chicken Salad
A simple chicken salad dish perfect for lunch or dinner. Just add chicken, diced vegetables, and mayo-based salad dressing to create a flavorful salad.
Bring a pot with 2 quarts of well-salted water to a boil. Add the chicken breast and return the water to a simmer.
Then turn off the heat, and cover the pot. Let the chicken sit for 15 minutes or more while you prepare everything else.
Prepare the chicken salad dressing in a large bowl. Mix together the mayonnaise, preserves, and lemon juice. Taste for the proper balance of sweetness and acidity.
Mix in the chopped celery, bell pepper, olives, red onion, and apple.
Remove the chicken from the poaching water and dice it. Mix it in with the dressing and vegetables.
When ready to serve, fold in the sliced and chopped iceberg lettuce.
