    I made this with what I had on hand tonight and man was it delicious – thank you for introducing me to chicken salad without mayo and the process of steeping chicken!

    Mine had chicken breast, red onion, yellow bell pepper, basil from the garden, olive oil, cider vinegar and s&p to taste. Perfect light summer dinner with watermelon for dessert! Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!

    Just made this…in fact eating now. Delicious! The sherry vinegar works very well w/ the other ingredients and the toasted almonds add an excellent earthy crunch. Thanks Elise!

    Made this last night and it was delicious. Although, I think I over cooked the chicken a bit (it was chewy). But it was my first ever steeping chicken. Better overcooked, than under. We ate are ours on tortillas topped with a little feta. Looking forward to the left overs tonight!

    Ditto on using leftover/rotisserie chicken and putting it over pasta — delicious quick lunch!

    Also good with mint, the only fresh herb we had on hand, (although I used a lot less than the parsley). Fresh herbs make everything better, don’t they?

    Awesome! I used grilled chicken, subbed leftover pecans for almonds, and added artichokes. My new favorite lunch.

    Just made it, with the shredded half of a rotisserie chicken. It is delicious, and so colorful!

    I added sun-dried tomatoes (re-hydrated in some warm water and a dash of apple vinegar) and it worked out really good. Substituted the vinegar in the seasoning with balsamic apple vinegar from Trentino. Terrific! :)

    I often made a cool summer chicken salad for very hot days. I poach chicken on a cooler evening and store it in the fridge. On hot days, I shred the chicken, make a vinaigrette, add canned mandarin segments, scallions or red onions, leftover grilled vegetables, whatever else looks good, some fresh torn up romaine and voila! Dinner is done and all I’ve done is rummage in the fridge and rinse some lettuce leaves. Sometimes I add some Thai fish sauce (balance the flavors with a couple pinches of sugar), and peanuts instead of almonds. Adding fresh herbs is also wonderful and fresh and makes each bite taste different. The possibilities are endless!

    Hi! Long time lurker, first time comment. I already had the chicken breast in the freezer, all I needed were the roasted peppers and parsley. I halved the recipe since I cook for two. I poached two chicken breasts for 30 minutes and prep was so easy! I melted Swiss cheese and toasted some wheat bread to go with the salad. Me and my boyfriend pretty much devoured our sandwiches! This is great!
