Chicken Waldorf Salad sent this recipe to me when I had to host several friends on a hot summer day for a bridal party. It was a great success.

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast                           ½ cup raisins
3 lg. red delicious apples cut into sm. chucks                ½ tsp salt
4 celery stalks cut into small slices                                ½ cup sour cream
¼ cup mandarin orange slices                                      1-cup mayonnaise
½ cup whipped cream                                                 2 tsp lemon juice
½ cup nuts (walnuts, pecans)                                       Fry pan
Crisp lettuce leaves                                                     Salad Plates

Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in skillet and add chicken. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Cut chicken into chunks. Place chicken into a medium sized bowl and add other ingredients reserving the lettuce. Stir mixture then toss blended mix to evenly coat the chicken and apples. Wash lettuce and wrap in paper towels and put in baggie without air. Chill salad mixture in closed bowl and baggie of lettuce until ready to serve. Place salad mixture on top of lettuce leaves to serve. Yields 8-10 servings.
