Dancin' Chicken

Da Bears Chicken Salad

1. Get yourself some chicken breasts - about 2 to 3 lbs (go with the skinless/boneless kind - it'll save lots of time).

2. Put the chicken in a pot covered with water (you can add some onion and/or celery if you like) and cook until done.

3. Take the chicken out of the pot (save the stock for all kinds of other things) and let cool for awhile.

4. Now while the chicken is cooling - you can shred up some carrots and chop up some celery...some crumbled crisp bacon is a nice option too.

5. After the chicken has cooled - shred the chicken up and put it in a mixing bowl.

6. Add the carrots and celery to the shredded chicken and mix them all together.

7. To make the dressing - get some good mayonnaise (I like JFG - no "lite" stuff - you want this to taste good - right!!!) and some good honey.

8. Mix the mayonnaise and honey together at about two parts mayonnaise to one part honey (when you make this again - and you will! - you can adjust this to your taste) add some thyme and black pepper and mix this all into the the shredded chicken.

9. Get yourself some good bread and make yourself a sandwich - just one sandwich now - you really want to save some for other people to try - I know it'll be hard to do since this tastes so great - but remember - sharing is a very good thing!!!
