It's best to use fresh chicken breasts for a pure white color, but canned or shredded rotisserie chicken also works. To poach fresh chicken breasts, place them in a saucepan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add cold water so it just covers the chicken. Bring to a boil and simmer over medium-low heat until chicken is cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and allow to cool before dicing.
1/2 cup relish or sweet gherkins, diced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
salt & sugar to taste
- Combine diced chicken with chestnuts, celery and relish.
- Stir lemon juice, mayonnaise and Miracle Whip until thoroughly combined.
- Add chicken, walnuts and cranberries, mix well and adjust salt and sugar to taste.
- Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours or preferably overnight before serving.
