Chicken Salad with Two Peppers

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 219


2 small chicken (about 3 pounds each)
2 carrots
2 ribs celery
1 onion
a few parsley sprigs
6 black peppercorns
6 red or yellow Roasted Peppers peeled, and cut into thin strips
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled hot cherry peppers, or to taste
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
4 to 6 cups mixed baby greens


1 Place the chickens in a large stockpot and add cold water to cover. Bring the liquid to a simmer and cook 10 minutes. With a spoon, skim off and discard the foam that rises to the surface.

2 Add the carrot, celery, onion, parsley, and salt to taste. Cook on medium-low heat until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, roast the bell peppers, if necessary. When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pot. Reserve the broth for another use.

4 Let the chicken drain and cool. Remove the meat. Cut the meat into 2-inch chunks and place them in a bowl with the roasted bell peppers.

5 In a medium bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients. Drizzle half the sauce over the chicken and peppers and toss well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator up to 2 hours.

6 Just before serving, toss the chicken with the remaining sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more vinegar if needed. Arrange the greens on a serving platter. Top with chicken and peppers. Serve immediately.
