Chicken Salad

This has to be one of my all time summer favorites.  My kids (especially my son) would eat this for breakfast if I let him.  If you have the time it’s worth going the extra step and poaching your chicken using the recipe listed here.

Chicken Salad

4 cups diced poached chicken (cooled)
3 rib celery diced
4 scallions thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, scallions and herbs. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Add to the chicken and mix gently until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
