Chicken cooking question (for chicken salad)

foxy fairy | May 29, 2007 12:40 PM

I spotted an idea here for cooking chicken in cream (350 degrees, 45 minutes) and then using it for chicken salad. I've been experimenting with chicken salads - various dressings and mixtures, and now different preparations of the chicken itself.

I don't have cream. I have milk, buttermilk, and about 1/2-cup of half-and half. I'm cooking about a pound and a half of chicken. I do want to try cooking it in the liquid as suggested, but since I don't have the cream, I don't know which to use of the liquids I do have.

I think I'm going to try throwing some peaches into the salad! YUM. I spotted this idea on epicurious (calls for bottled poppyseed dressing, but I'm going to make my own dressing, probably creamy curry with grapes).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
