Bistro Chicken Salad

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Want to feel like you're dining in a French bistro...right in your own kitchen? Well you can when you make our delicious homemade Bistro Chicken Salad. With a hint of tarragon, this one is a stand-out!

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 15 min

Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, combine chicken broth, water and black pepper; bring to a boil over high heat. Add the chicken and cook 10 to 15 minutes, or until no pink remains.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well.

  3. Remove chicken from broth; allow to cool slightly and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  4. Add chicken to mayonnaise mixture; mix well. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Notes: A fancy way to serve this is to place a scoop of chicken salad on a romaine lettuce leaf and surround it with slices of fresh melon.
