Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 3-4 stalks celery finely chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste

Optional:

  • onion
  • peppers
  • pickles

Instructions

  • Poach chicken breasts in water or broth by covering for 30 minutes after liquid boils. Remove chicken and allow to cool.
  • Shred chicken into small pieces.
  • Mix chicken and celery.
  • Stir together mayonnaise, salt and pepper until well blended.
  • Spoon mayonnaise mixture over chicken mixture and stir to coat.
  • Store in refrigerator. Serve chilled.

Notes

It's best to avoid mayonnaise made with seed oils. Instead, find one made with a healthy fat like avocado oil. You can also make your own with coconut oil.
Add-ins like onion, pepper, pickles, seeds, and nuts are great ways to change up this simple salad.
