INGREDIENTS

For the salad:
1 pound boneless, skinless (raw) chicken breasts, cut into 2 1/2-inch chunks (or 2 to 3 cups cooked chicken meat)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
4 to 6 green olives, pitted and minced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 to 1 whole apple, cored and chopped
1/3 head iceberg head lettuce, sliced and chopped
For the dressing:
5 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon plum preserves, or any sweet berry preserve (or a lesser amount of honey)
2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

METHOD

1 Poach the chicken (skip if using already cooked chicken): Bring a pot with 2 quarts of well salted water (1 tablespoon salt) to a boil. Add the chicken breast (cut into large chunks) and return the water to a simmer. Then turn off the heat, and cover the pot. Let the chicken sit for 15 minutes (time it) or more while you prepare everything else.

2 Make the dressing: Prepare the chicken salad dressing in a large bowl. Mix together the mayonnaise, preserves, and lemon juice. Taste for the proper balance of sweetness and acidity. The salad dressing should not be too sweet, nor too sour.
