  • - Cut chives with scissors or ceramic knife to prevent oxidation.
  • - You can make this cold dish some hours ahead, in the morning for evening.
    If you have any leftovers, don't worry. You can eat chicken salad the day after.
    But chill it!
  • - You can see two photos. In the first photo raw tomatoes are substituted by tomato confit. It's my best version of this recipe. The second photo shows you the recipe with raw cherry tomatoes.

Menu planning

Healthy eating

  • - Little to say on this cold dish with chicken. Essentially it's special for your summer get-togethers or ceremony menus or meal, buffet style as I've just written not for your daily menu. Give a look at its calories and fat! You have to consider that the portions on which I made calculations are quite small!
