Summer Chicken Salad with Garden Herbs

This recipe leaves you with a bonus: homemade chicken stock. Four cups of rotisserie or leftover chicken, however, will work as a time-saver.

Cooking Light JUNE 2002

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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.
