The flavor of this was really good. I thought it was too gloppy and too salty BUT I made it with leftover cooked chicken breasts (skipping the onion and the cooking step) and probably only had the equivalent of two breasts worth of meat. Next time I make this I will follow the recipe more closely and update my review.

Simple and good! I really like poaching the chicken because it comes out so moist and tender. I made DH a sandwich without the eggs, but made mine a salad (with the eggs, lol). This was really good with sliced apples alongside. Thanks Chef Nichol for a keeper. Made for PAC Spring 2009.

Such a simple recipe, but it's so good! Kind of sweet and a little tangy. The kids agree...this makes a great sandwich. I'll make this again when I have chicken leftovers. Thanx for sharing.
