"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

4 large boneless skinless
Fill in the salad with the following
chicken breasts
3 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 cup miracle whip
1/2 can water chestnuts
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
Chopped apples
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Pineapple tidbits
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
Red grapes

Garnish with green onion

Place chicken breasts in a pot, bring to a boil, turn to low and cook for 3 hours. Drain the chicken and shred into pieces. Add the rest of the ingredients and cover with sauce.

If you soak the apples in the pineapple juice for a minute before adding them, they stay fresh and light.

Serve with fresh dinner rolls or crescents.
