I guess I just needed this recipe to start the instructions a little earlier. Like, how do you get your chicken cooked perfectly, ready to chop? Ok, here's what I do: Boil 3 or 4 (seasoned) chicken breasts in 2cups water (with 2 T.oil) about 8 minutes on a rolling boil, or until done. Cool & dice fine. Add I need more seasonings in my chicken salad: I stir together the 1/2 cup mayo, 2 T. lemon juice, seasonings (1/2 t. pepper, 1/2 t. garlic powder, 1/2 t. Old Bay, 1/2 t. Mrs. Dash) and 2-3 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish. (Yes! that's TABLESPOONS -- the big ones!) Toss with chopped chicken, 2-3 ribs diced celery, 2 T. finely diced onion, & 3/4 cup slivered almonds. Add addt'l salt & pepper to taste. Chill 1hr.+ for flavors to meld. Serve chilled. Of course, this makes MORE than Jackie's recipe, but if I'm making something this good, I want enough to enjoy several (toasted) sandwiches, as well as nibble at it with crackers! Yummy!
