This recipe leaves you with a bonus: homemade chicken stock. Four cups of rotisserie or leftover chicken, however, will work as a time-saver.
6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 (3 1/2-pound) whole chicken
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons capers
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced


Place chicken in a stockpot; cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 50 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving broth for another use. Cool chicken completely. Remove skin from chicken; discard skin. Remove chicken from bones; discard bones and fat. Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces.

Combine chives and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken; toss well to coat.
