This is my version of my mom’s chicken salad recipe. I started chopping everything in the food processor, and it makes it even faster to put it all together once the chicken is cooked.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 dried bay leaf
1-2 teaspoons seasoned salt
3-4 sweet pickles
3-4 hard boiled eggs, peeled
1/2 white onion
1-2 stalks celery
Miracle Whip light
Put the chicken in a large pot and fill with cold water. Add one bay leaf and sprinkle the surface of the water with seasoned salt. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through. Drain and run under cold water to cool off. Pulse in food processor to chop the meat, and place in a big bowl. Do the same with the pickles, eggs, onion and celery until they’re all chopped. Stir in enough Miracle Whip to bind, and refrigerate. This makes great sandwiches – we like it on a roll, sometimes on toast, or even in a pita half. Yum!
