what you need
  • 2 lb. bonless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 bunch spring onions (1/2 chopped)
  • 1 cup sweet salad cubes or relish
  • 1 teaspoon Kraft Mustard

make it
Place chicken in a large pot or pressure cooker with leafy parts of the celery stalks, 3 whole spring onions, salt and pepper (a little seasoned salt works great also) and 2 dashes hot sauce.

Add enough water to just cover chicken. Boil for 45 minutes to an hour (if using a pressure cooker, boil for 30 minutes) chicken is ready when it breaks apart easily.

Drain, remove onion and celerly. While chicken is still hot using 2 forks shred chicken. Cover and cool completley.

While chicken is cooking combine remaining ingredients excluding the nuts and grapes. Cover and refrigerate.

Combine chicken with mayo mixture adding a little mayo if needed. Place chicken salad in a large bowl and cover. Chill overnight for best flavor.

Just prior to serving, sprinkle salad with paprika and in a circular design, top salad with nuts and grapes. Serve with mini crescent rolls and/or assorted crackers.
Note: This recipe is a great for leftover turkey or roast chicken.
