How to Make Insalata Di Pollo

HideShow Media
Boil the chicken for a couple of minutes along with the carrot, onion, celery and salt.
Let it cook for about 1 - 1 1/12 hours.
For more flavor cook the chicken with the skin on to keep the moisture in. Remove the skin after cooking to reduce fat.
Scrape off the meat from the chicken. Here the chef uses meat only from the chicken legs as it is more juicy and flavorsome.
In a bowl mix all veggies and salad leaves.
Add to this shredded chicken.
Mix all the dressing ingredients well.
Mix in the veggies, chicken and dressing.
Garnish with some fresh pepper and olive oil.
