Many chicken salad recipes are run of the mill and bland to say the least. This salad has a few extra ingredients that provide a lot of zip! Pictured as a sandwich served on french bread, it may also be served atop crisp butter lettuce cups.
- Slowly poach chicken breasts in water until cooked through with an onion, carrot, celery tops and a bay leaf.
- Remove chicken from broth and chill.
- Gently combine all ingredients.
- Mound salad on crisp lettuce leaves or make sandwiches.
