Chicken Salad

Remember I told you about my getting a pressure cooker?
I am branching out and trying more recipes. 
I went to the "Pressure Cooking" class at the Bosch store
on Highland Dr. (if you live in S.L.C. you will know where that is)
And my favortie cooking couple Melanie and Mathew
 were teaching the class. One of the recipes was for Chicken Salad and the made this with frozen chicken breasts. So I tried it....
And it was Delious!!
So I thought I would share with you what I learned...
You need 4 cups diced cooked chicken so I used 3 frozen breasts (from
Costco so very big) I used 1/2 cup water and 1 teaspoon boullion.
You bring it to high pressure and cook 9 to 12 minutes.
This depends on how
frozen the chicken is. When done dice or shread.
Now in a large bowl mix:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice (more if you want)
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
salt and pepper
Mix in the bottom of bowl and you will only dirty 1 bowl.

Add 1 cup diced celery
1 to 2 cups seedless grapes ( red with walnuts & green with almonds)
1 cup toasted nuts you choose
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
4 cups cooked chicken

Now mix all together and enjoy!
