Video: New Year's Salad With Chicken And Pineapple. Step-by-step Recipe With Photo
New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple is delicious and simple. It takes very little time to cook it, especially if you boil chicken and eggs the day before. I advise you to prepare the ingredients in advance - boil, cut, put in separate containers, and mix and season a few hours before the guests arrive. Smoked chicken breast works well for this recipe as well, you don't even have to cook chicken. By the way, I advise you to remember this recipe for cases when guests are going to come unexpectedly to you.
- Cooking time: 15 minutes

Method of preparing New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple
Cut the boiled chicken breast into small cubes and place in a large bowl. To make the meat juicy, it must be cooked properly. So, on the eve of cooking, put the chilled chicken breast in a small saucepan, pour cold water so that it covers the chicken, add 2 teaspoons of salt.
Add a bunch of dill, a clove of garlic, a few lavrushkas and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat and cook, covering the pan with a lid, 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of the breast). We leave the boiled chicken in the broth overnight. The next day will be the perfect meat for salads and appetizers.
Peel the hard-boiled chicken eggs, separate the yolks from the proteins. We leave the yolks to decorate the dish. Rub the proteins on a coarse grater, add to the chicken.
We put the canned pineapple slices on a sieve, when the juice drains, cut into small cubes. Put the sliced pineapple in a bowl, leave a handful of cubes to decorate the New Year's salad.
Rub the cheddar on a coarse grater, add to the rest of the ingredients.
Season the salad with mayonnaise, fatty sour cream, add two teaspoons of wasabi and ground sweet paprika. Wasabi is worth trying, this sauce can be very strong, you may need to reduce its amount.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly, taste, salt to taste and pepper with freshly ground black pepper.
We put a culinary ring on a plate, put a New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple in a ring or in a festive salad bowl.
Rub the boiled egg yolks on a fine grater, sprinkle the salad with grated yolks.
Decorate the dish with pineapple cubes and fresh parsley leaves. New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple is ready. Store in the refrigerator until serving. Bon Appetit. Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!
PS Such a tasty and healthy salad can be attributed with some stretch to recipes for proper nutrition, if you replace the ready-made mayonnaise with homemade, cooked in high-quality olive oil, or completely abandon mayonnaise, replacing it with sour cream and table mustard.
