No recipe image available.A terrfic tasting, reduced-calorie chicken and fruit salad.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
1 onion, quartered
2 celery stalks, chopped, leaves reserved
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped
4 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
3/4 cup red seedless grapes, halved
3/4 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
1 whole, fresh pineapple with skin
1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. In large saucepan, place chicken breasts and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Add onion, celery leaves and Kosher salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Remove from liquid and set aside. Discard liquid.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut chicken into bite-size pieces. In large bowl, mix together chicken, celery, apples, scallions, grapes and almonds. Use sharp knife to split pineapple into sixths from top to bottom. Slice core off each pineapple wedge and slice off fruit, leaving tufts of leaves in tact. Set aside half the fruit for other use or garnish. Cut the remaining fruit into chunks and add to chicken mixture. Set pineapple wedges on 6 plates.
  3. In small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice; blend well. Add dressing to chicken mixture and toss thoroughly. Add salt and pepper. Spoon mixture onto pineapple wedges and serve.

Makes 6 servings.
