3 lbs boneless chicken breast (or prepared rotisserie chicken)

4 apples (Gala or Fuji), chopped

1 medium red onion, chopped

1 C chopped celery

1 C walnuts or pecans

1 C mayonnaise

¼ C brown mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

If you’re using boneless chicken breasts, place chicken in a large stockpot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes or until no longer pink.

Chop or shred chicken. In a large bowl, mix chicken with apple, onion, celery, walnuts, salt and pepper. Toss with mayonnaise and mustard. Store in the fridge. Serve with crackers or on croissants. Makes about 20 servings.
