      Title: Apple and walnut chicken salad
 Categories: Salads, Chicken, Dressings
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      3    Chicken breasts - (1 lb.ea.)
      2    Tart green apples
      2 tb Fresh lemon juice
    2/3 c  Chopped pitted dates
      1 c  Finely chopped celery *
           Salt; to taste
           Freshly ground black -
           Pepper; to taste
    1/2 c  Chopped toasted walnuts
           ---Poaching Liquid---
      4 c  A Basic Chicken Stock **
      1    Celery leaf
      1    Parsley sprig
      1 pn Salt
      1 tb Fresh lemon juice
           ---Dressing---
    1/3 c  Sour cream
    1/3 c  Mayonnaise
      2 tb Fresh lemon juice

  ** Note: See the "A Basic Chicken Stock" recipe which is included in
  this collection.
  
  Poach the chicken breasts in the poaching liquid for 10 minutes, or
  just until the pink color is gone throughout. The breasts will be
  firm when pressed with the back of a fork. Let cool to room
  temperature in the liquid. Remove and discard the skin and bones, and
  shred the chicken into bite-size pieces. Core, peel, and cut apples
  in 1/2" slices. In a large bowl, toss the apples with 2 tablespoons
  lemon juice. Add the chicken, dates, and celery. Toss to mix well. In
  a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and 2
  tablespoons lemon juice. Add to the chicken mixture, along with salt
  and pepper. Toss again to combine well. Cover and chill the salad for
  1 hour or more. Just before serving, stir in the walnuts. This recipe
  serves 4 to 6.
  
  Comments: Serve this classic fruit and chicken salad on a bed of red
  and white cabbage. In addition this, there are several other fruit
  and chicken breast combinations you might want to fix. See the
  variations "Red And Green Grapes Chicken Salad" and "Mango Chicken
  Salad" (recipes included in this collection) for inspiration -- each
  one is as easy as this recipe.
