The history of this iconic salad dates back to 1896 when the Waldorf Hotel in New York concocted this fruity number. Apple, sultanas and grapes are tumbled through a creamy dressing, with walnuts adding earthiness, chicken for protein and croutons for crunch!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken thigh fillets with the dried oregano and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 min, turning once halfway, until golden on both sides

 

2 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Meanwhile, boil a kettle

Add the mayonnaise to a bowl with the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and a drizzle of olive oil

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper - this is your creamy dressing

3 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Once the chicken is golden, reduce the heat to low, add a splash of water, cover with a lid and cook for 10-12 min or until it's cooked through

4 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Meanwhile, dice the apple[s] (skin on) into bite-sized pieces

Add the diced apple to a very large bowl with the juice of the remaining lemon

Tip: the lemon juice prevents the apple from going brown!

Add the sultanas to a small bowl and cover them with boiled water (this plumps them up)

5 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Cut the ciabatta roll[s] into small, bite-sized pieces 

Add the ciabatta to one side of the baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper 

Add the walnuts to the other side of the baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 5-6 min or until they've darkened slightly in colour and toasted 

6 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Meanwhile, slice the celery as finely as you can

Cut the red grapes in half 

Tear the cosberg lettuce into rough, bite-size pieces

7 Classic Chicken Waldorf Salad

Once the chicken is cooked through, shred the chicken apart in the pan, using two forks - this technique is known as ‘pulling'

Drain the sultanas
