Chicken BLT Salad

Jennifer S.

Makes 10 servings

1 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breast poached
1/2 cup white onion diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 medium slices bacon cooked, drained, crumbled
1/4 cup scallion thinly sliced (You could also add some diced celery, I just happen to hate celery)
1 cup plum tomato diced
10 leaves lettuce washed and trimmed
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash (Yellow lid)

Poach chicken in water, with white onion and salt and pepper, until chicken is cooked and onion is soft.
Drain off water, reserving cooked onion. Keep a small amount of liquid.
Let chicken cool, until it can be handled. Shred chicken into bite size shreds.
Mix in mayonnaise, sour cream, bacon, scallion.
The tomato and lettuce are optional to go in the salad. (I find they make the left overs slimy)
Add salt and pepper to taste and Mrs. Dash, mix well.
Use reserved poaching liquid if needed to thin out salad to spreading consistency.
Cover and chill
Serve with tomato and lettuce on the side.
