Original recipe yields 3 cups

Directions

  1. Place the 1-inch piece of ginger and star anise in a pot of water over medium-heat and bring to a boil. Add chicken to the water. Lower heat to medium-low; simmer until chicken is no longer pink the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a plate to cool. Once cool to the touch, dice into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Make a dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, salt, pepper, paprika, and honey; set aside.
  3. Combine the diced chicken, celery, apple, onion, raisins, walnuts and 2 teaspoons minced ginger in a bowl. Drizzle dressing into the chicken mixture; stir until pieces are evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Fabulous chicken salad! I LOVE chicken salad and this is some of the best. The ginger is a nice touch and I love the combination of fruits and the crunch from the walnuts. I used Hellman's light mayo that I cut with a little light sour cream to give it the dressing even more creaminess and the honey gave it just the right amount of sweetness. This would be equally good with craisins or pecans. Great by itself, but really good on whole grain bread! Thanks for a great recipe!

My husband is a picky eater, and we agree that this is the BEST chicken salad we have ever had! The only way I can actually let it set overnight is to not let him find out it's there. Tip for the recipe, I don't buy extra minced ginger for the recipe, I just mince the piece that I used to boil the chicken. It's so much easier that way.

This is a great chicken salad recipe! The ginger was a nice addition I'm sure I will use again. I did not use the star-anise pod as I didn't have it but would like to try it the next time I make this recipe. The next time I make it I will probably just chop up the ginger that I boiled with the chicken as another reviewer suggested. I actually had some of this salad for lunch with a friend (on a croissant of course!) who called me the next day to tell me she was thinking about the chicken salad that we ate.....really good recipe!
