Default Chicken Salad for Mrs Bear

Chicken Salad for Mrs Bear (Sous Vide)


I never got involved in Mrs Bearís Chicken Salad before I got my Sous Vide Supreme, but I knew I could make it better for her with that.
She always makes 2 Chicken Breasts in the Toaster Oven, and I knew I could make them more moist & tender, so I made a pair of Chicken Breasts for her & they were Great (Moist & Tender).

So this time she brought me 5 nice boneless Chicken Breasts, and wanted the same thing done to them.
I put two Breasts in each Vac Bag, and one in another, along with a pat of butter for each Breast, removed the air, and Double sealed the end.
Then I set the SV Supreme at 146į, and put the 3 packs in the Bath.
After 2 hours, I removed the packs & put them right into a big bowl of Ice Water to cool fast for an hour.

Then I removed them from the Ice water, dried them off & put them in the fridge.
The next day Mrs Bear froze 3 of the Breasts & took two of the Breasts & chopped them up.
She cut it all up in little cubes, mixed some Miracle Whip, Salt & Pepper, and Celery Seed into it & put it in the Fridge for a few days worth of Sammies for her lunches.

She said it really was much better than her Toaster Oven made Chicken Salad.

I donít usually eat any of this, but I tried one myself, and all it needed was more Black Pepper.

Below is a quick pictorial review of the process we used:

Looks pretty good... I like to add grapes and chopped walnuts/almonds and onions, celery to mine... maybe halved grape tomatoes if they are in season...

Good looking chicken salad Bear - I'm finding more and more uses for mine. I like that you can throw in the bath and walk away

Sounds good, except the Onions (Only food I know of that Makes me Sick).

This stuff & recipe is Mrs Bear's---All I do is SV it & hand it off.

Some nice stuff there, Bear. The chicken salad at my house usually has some tart apple, a few red tart dried cherries and some chopped smoked almonds. Can't beat it on a nice seeded rye!

Thank You Uncle!!
And for the Points!

Mrs Bear said she'd give me Points for this one, because it made her Chicken Salad so much better than the Toaster Oven she used to make her Chicken in.

That sounds Great !!
However like I said, it's basically her Chicken Salad, so her chosen ingredients.
