Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is easy. I love this healthy version with the gently poached chicken breasts and fresh garlic. If you want a more authentic chicken salad replace the garlic (or add) a tablespoon (or two) of sweet pickle relish. Heinz makes a wonderful relish that my brother first introduced me to called India Relish that is particularly good. Pickle relish does have about 125 mg of sodium in each tablespoon so if you are on a low-sodium diet, it might be good to reduce the added salt a little.

Here's the recipe for Chicken Salad without the pictures. You can print the recipe by clicking the print icon at the top of the right-hand column. Be sure to turn off any popup blockers, as it opens in a new window.

Step Three: Poach the chicken

Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the water and wine.

As you are cooking touch the breasts at the thickest point. As the chicken cooks there will be more and more resistance.
