CLASSIC CHICKEN SALAD (Adapted from divadicucina)

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 c mayonnaise (Hellman’s of course)
2 tsp lemon juice
1 sweet onion (preferably Vidalia), finely chopped
2 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
1-2 TBSP pickle relish (optional)
1 tsp salt

Place chicken breasts in large pot and cover with water or chicken broth.

Set a timer for 35 minutes.  Bring to a boil; then reduce heat to a simmer.  Total cook time ~ 35 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and cool. Place chicken in a food processor and pulse until desired shredding size (I like mine really shredded, but you can also chop the chicken into cubes, if preferred.).

In a large bowl mix together the celery, mayonnaise, lemon juice, onion, parsley, relish (if using) and salt and pepper.

Add the chicken to the dressing, and stir to coat.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve plated as a salad or as a sandwich.
