    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    I have made this for bridal & baby showers and the women love it. I serve it on a mini croissant with fancy lettuce. It can also be served on a bed of fancy lettuce greens topped with crispy Chinese style noodles and fresh fruit on the side. Just lovely. When I make it just for the family I wing the amounts (approx. 1/4 to 1/2 chicken breast per person). UPDATE: 8/9/08 Purchasing several rotisserie chickens makes this even MORE tasty! OR be sure to season the water chicken bouillon when simmering the chicken breasts

    1. 1
      Boil the chicken breasts until no longer pink. Cool completely and cube or shred.
    2. 2
      Peel and mince onion. Can use small to medium size.
    3. 3
      Clean and thinly slice celery.
    4. 4
      Combine mayonnaise, half and half, white pepper and Beau Monde. NOTE: *I add enough Beau Monde to see scant color in the mayonnaise, chill and let rest while the chicken is cooling. This will allow the flavors to blend.
    5. 5
      Combine all ingredients with the chicken and cover and refrigerate over night.
    6. 6
      Next Morning:.
    7. 7
      Taste test for additional Beau Monde.
    8. 8
      Add more half & half or milk to thin and make creamier if desired.
    9. 9
      OPTIONAL: Finely shred iceberg lettuce and add to the chicken mixture. This stretches the amount of chicken salad and makes it lighter in texture.

      I scaled this way down. The half and half really gives this a wonderful texture (makes it less "mayonnaisy." Thanks Chicagoland, for responding to my request for "funeral foods." Roxygirl
