Whenever in NYC, I always try to cross the bridge to Brooklyn and eat at Junior's on the corner of Flatbush and Dekalb. I was fortunate to come across this recipe for their chicken salad. It's great for making sandwiches on thick slices of white or Challah bread, or simply serve as a salad on curly lettuce leaves. P.S. You haven't lived until you've tried Junior's cheesecake, the best in the world.

Directions

  1. To cook the chicken: Fill a large saucepan half full with water. Add a few celery leaves, if you wish, plus the salt and white pepper, and bring to a boil over high heat. Slide in the chicken breasts, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken turns opaque and the juices are no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a colander with a slotted spoon, and rinse with cold water. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and cut into 3/4-inch chunks (please don't shred the chicken).
  2. Place the chicken chunks into a medium-sized bowl and sprinkle with the lemon juice and toss well. Add the diced celery and dill and toss again.
  3. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. Spoon the dressing over the chicken mixture and stir until all of the chicken and celery are coated.
