Best chicken salad I ever had- a little homemade Aioli mayo with chicken, sun-dried tomato, olive and thyme. Great on sandwiches or on romaine lettuce. This recipe adapts to various tastes well- for instance, it goes great with crumbled bacon, minced red onion, touch of sage, or red wine vinegar instead of the aioli.

Directions

  1. Place chicken breasts into a saucepan with enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, then cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain, and set aside to cool.
  2. While the chicken is poaching, whisk together egg yolks and garlic until light colored. Whisk in olive oil in a thin stream until fully incorporated. Flavor with lemon juice and salt to taste. This is the aioli sauce.
  3. Shred or cut chicken into small pieces, and place in a salad bowl. Toss with the olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and thyme. Stir in 3/4 cup of the aioli until everything is evenly coated. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired. Refrigerate, or serve immediately. Make a pleased groaning sound as you eat it.

Wonderful change from plain old chicken salad. I never follow a recipe exactly and I added a few things to this one and it was excellent. I've made it 3 times in 5 days and it's been eaten on sandwiches, as a side dish and mixed with pasta.

WHILE MAKING THIS SALAD,I DID NOT THINK IT WAS GOING TO TASTE THAT GOOD,BUT I MUST CONFESS ALL THE INGREDIENTS AND FLAVORS BLEND TOGETHER VERY WELL. TASTES GREAT! USED IT FOR SANDWICHES.
