“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.” - by Jake Cuff
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 sandwich..." See morees, 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...." See more"
