  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.


My name is Nichol and I am 31 years old. I live in Hastings, NE with my wonderful 9 month old daughter Molly, husband David, and our cat Salem. I absolutely love to cook and come up with new recipes. I also like to cook with ingredients that my husband claims he doesn't like and then when he eats a dish I created, he LOVES it!! We hope to open our own restaurant in the next couple of years! For now I run my own catering business called Noshes by Nichol and I just thoroughly enjoy seeing the looks on peoples faces when they taste what I have created! It's the simple things in life for me and I am grateful for them every single day! Oh and GGGOOO BBBIIIGGG RRREEEDDD! We are huge Husker fans and I always make a huge spread for game days! <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
