Directions

  1. Over medium-high heat, bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add chicken, celery, a slice of the onion, and garlic. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Chop remaining onion and set aside.
  3. Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  4. Drain chicken, discarding boiled vegetables. Chop chicken when cool.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the apple, onion, pickles, almond and salt, if desired. Add black and red pepper to taste. Stir in enough mayonnaise until the mixture sticks together well.
  6. Cover a serving dish with lettuce leaves. Mound the chicken salad in the middle, and sprinkle with additional almonds, if desired. Serve with crackers.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I used dill pickles instead of sweet and grapes instead of apples. The crushed red pepper is a key ingredient, very faint taste, but a great addition. I also found that one onion is a little too much, especially on the 2nd day of the salad after the flacvor has intensified. I get compliments and requests for the receipe everywhere I take it. Great idea for showers.

i made this for a baby shower and it went over quite well. the only thing i changed was adding a bit more mayonnaise, as i like my chicken salad a bit more moist. i also added a little extra almonds and apple bits to add extra crunch the day i served it. i'll definitely use it again.
