Chicken Salad with Granny Smith Apples, Golden Raisins & Walnuts

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil leaves
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, chopped
  • 1 cup of golden raisins
  • 1 – 1/2 cup Hellmann’s Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil
  • Salt and white pepper to taste

Serves 4

  • Clean chicken breasts and place in a pot. Cover with water and cook until tender, about 30 minutes. I like to add garlic powder to the water but this is optional. 
  • While chicken is cooking, chop the apples and walnuts and place them in a large bowl. Add golden raisins to the bowl.
  • Remove chicken from pot and place on a plate to cool. Place the chicken in a food processor, season with salt and pepper and shred. You may shred by hand if you prefer.
  • Add chicken, mayonnaise, and dried basil to the chopped apples, walnuts and raisins; stir mixture well to combine.
  • Cover and chill for an hour. To make chicken salad sandwiches I recommend french baguettes. Yum!
