    Chef PotPie's Note:

    We love chicken salads at our house, but when I read this, (out of Cook's Country magazine to which I subscribe, June/July 2007), I decided that this is the way I will do chicken breast for chicken salad from now on! No more poached chicken breast for us. We'll take the flavor punch of the sauteeing...Slapping myself on the forhead...why didn't I ever think of this?!

      Very good recipe. I had only made chicken in the oven and on the grill before this so it was a totally new experience for me and it turned out great. I over salted it a little so I'll use less next time but is definitely one I will be using again in the near future!

      This is one of those recipes that is so basic and simple that it's tempting to add a little of this and a dash of that.Don't do it! It's perfect as is! Just what I was craving. Thanks for posting this gem of a recipe.

      Terrific. I am another who never again will poach chicken breasts for use in other recipes that call for cooked chix breast. And, I might add, they are delicious hot and fresh. Thanks for posting this! (I've already made it twice and shall again and again and again.)
