Base: Salads Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

3 Chicken breasts -, 1 lb.ea.
2 Tart green apples
2 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lemon juice
2/3 Cup(s) Chopped pitted dates
1 Cup(s) Finely chopped celery *
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black -
Pepper, to taste
1/2 Cup(s) Chopped toasted walnuts
Poaching Liquid-
4 Cup(s) A Basic Chicken Stock **
1 Celery leaf
1 Parsley sprig
1 Pinch(s) Salt
1/3 Cup(s) Sour cream
1/3 Cup(s) Mayonnaise
Use only the tender inner stalks of celery for this recipe. ** Note:
See the "A Basic Chicken Stock" recipe which is included in this
collection. Poach the chicken breasts in the poaching liquid for 10
minutes, or just until the pink color is gone throughout. The breasts
will be firm when pressed with the back of a fork. Let cool to room
temperature in the liquid. Remove and discard the skin and bones, and
shred the chicken into bite-size pieces. Core, peel, and cut apples in
1/2" slices. In a large bowl, toss the apples with 2 tablespoons lemon
juice. Add the chicken, dates, and celery. Toss to mix well. In a
small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and 2
tablespoons lemon juice. Add to the chicken mixture, along with salt
and pepper. Toss again to combine well. Cover and chill the salad for
1 hour or more. Just before serving, stir in the walnuts. This recipe
serves 4 to 6. Comments: Serve this classic fruit and chicken salad on
a bed of red and white cabbage. In addition this, there are several
other fruit and chicken breast combinations you might want to fix. See
the variations "Red And Green Grapes Chicken Salad" and "Mango Chicken
Salad" (recipes included in this collection) for inspiration -- each
one is as easy as this recipe. Recipe Source: MORE CHICKEN BREASTS by
