1 whole chicken breast (or 2 pre- skinned and pre- boned chicken breasts)
1/2 medium onion
1 stalk celery
3 hard boiled eggs
1 jar Helman's light mayo
Cook one whole chicken breast in 3 qt. saucepan, adding enough water
to cover (if you use precut chicken breasts, you will need 2 instead
of 1). Add 1 tsp. salt. Cut up 1/2 onion and place in with chicken (do
not chop or slice). Cut 3 sticks of celery in half and add to
chicken. Cook until tender (takes about an hour). Use fork to test for
Let chicken cool. Take off skin and remove bones (unless your chicken
comes already skinned and boned). You can throw away celery and onion,
strain broth through sieve and save it for broth or gravy if you
wish. It can be frozen in a plastic container with a lid.
On a cutting board, cut up chicken in bite sized pieces. Add 3 chopped
sticks of celery, 3 chopped hard boiled eggs, 3 TBSP Helman's light
mayo. Stir by hand. If it seems too dry add a little more
mayo. Refrigerate before serving.
