Chicken Waldorf Salad

This is close to a classic Waldorf, I swapped out grapes for the apples and raisins. Let's put the poached chicken thigh recipe to good use. This will keep for 6 days after you cooked the chicken. Makes a good lunch for work / school. A little mixed green salad, a fresh croissant and you're styling in the lunch room. 

Gather up these ingredients

  • 1 lb. cooked chicken meat
  • 1 cup toasted walnut halves, 10 minutes in Baking Oven 
  • 5 stalks celery, peeled and sliced on the bias. Try and make the celery similar in size to walnuts
  • 8 oz. red grapes quartered
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice 
  • 1 Tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt & pepper

Here's how we pull it all together

  • In a large bowl put in everything but the walnuts
  • mix gently, taste, adjust any salt and pepper
  • add walnuts, taste.

Note: If this sits for a few days and seems a little dry add a little boiling water. Try this trick, it's a good one.
