2 chicken breasts
2 little gem lettuces, shredded
4 sticks of celery, chopped
2 crisp apples, chopped into 1cm chunks
1 heaped tbsp of raisins
1 heaped tbsp of chopped walnuts
2 tbsps of good quality mayonnaise
1 tbsp of natural yogurt
Freshly ground black pepper
½ pint of chicken stock
Generous sprinkle of tarragon

Serves 2-3


  1. Sprinkle the tarragon on the chicken breasts. Bring the chicken stock to the boil, reduce the heat and poach the chicken breasts gently for 6-12 minutes until they are cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the size of the breasts, make sure they are thoroughly cooked but still tender. Allow to cool.
  2. Soak the raisins in hot water for an hour to allow them to soften and plump up.
  3. Mix the celery, apples, raisins and walnuts together. Add the mayonnaise and the yogurt and mix well.
  4. Put the shredded lettuce in a bowl and top with the Waldorf mixture. Cut the chicken breasts into slices and arrange on top.
  5. Serve with new potatoes and crusty French bread.
