Making a light salad with breast:
Step 1: prepare the chicken fillet.
Thoroughly wash the chicken fillet under running warm water and then put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, we clean the meat from veins, films, cartilage and fat. Next, move the component into a small pan and completely fill it with ordinary cold water so that it covers the chicken somewhere 3 fingers.
We put the container on a large fire and do not completely cover it with a lid. Closer to the boiling liquid, foam will begin to appear on its surface. Be sure to remove it with a slotted spoon and throw it into the sink. Then lightly fasten the burner and boil the meat until fully cooked. It takes me about such a piece 25-35 minutes.
After the allotted time, I advise you to check the chicken for readiness. To do this, just pierce the component with a fork. If the inventory easily enters the pulp, then everything is ready and you can turn off the burner. If not, then it’s worthwhile to extend the cooking time for 7-10 minutes.
In any case, turn off the burner at the end, and remove the chicken fillet with a slotted spoon or a tablespoon and put it on a cutting board. It should independently reach a warm state.
Then, using a knife, grind the meat into slices and transfer to a free plate.
Step 2: prepare canned pineapple.
We spread the rings of canned pineapple on a cutting board and, using a knife, finely chop into cubes. Gently chopped fruit into a clean plate and briefly set aside.
Step 3: prepare a fresh cucumber.
We wash the fresh cucumber well under running warm water, shake off excess liquid and put it on a cutting board. With a knife, remove the edges, and after we cut the vegetable lengthwise into two halves.
Finely chop each part into cubes or quarters, and then transfer to a free plate. Attention: if the cucumber has a rather stiff peel, then be sure to remove it with the help of improvised equipment.
Step 4: prepare the apple.
We wash the apple well under running warm water and then put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, peel the fruit from the skin and then cut it in half. From each piece we remove the seed box and the stalk.
Next, using a coarse grater, we rub the apple directly on the cutting board and then move it to a free plate.
Attention: the component can also be simply chopped into cubes using a knife. The taste of this salad will not change. Therefore, we do it as you like best.
Step 5: prepare a light salad with breast.
Pour sour cream and mayonnaise into a deep bowl and add mustard if desired. Using a tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until smooth. Everything, salad dressing is ready!
Next, put slices of boiled chicken, cubes of canned pineapple, chopped cucumber, apple in a medium bowl, and pour salt to taste. Now we water all the ingredients with dressing and mix everything well with improvised inventory. Everything, the salad is ready!
Step 6: serve light salad with breast.
