When Mom was cooking chicken salad, I would have said that summer had arrived because she was always preparing it at this time of year and she was doing it for a regiment and systematically it was never enough!

As for cooking times, us the pressure cooker to have the meat more tender.

Here we go …

Chicken salad, ingredients for 4 people:

3 chicken thighs and thighs

1 onion

1 celery

2 carrots

1 large or 2 small lettuce casps

3 red tomatoes

1 jar of stoned green olives

Extra virgin olive oil

Salt

3-4 tablespoons of mayonnaise

So first put the chicken in the pressure cooker with onions, carrots, celery, salt and two glasses of water. Make small holes in the chicken with a toothpick. Close the lid and whist for 25 minutes.

The procedures that require more time in this recipe are to cut all the vegetables, but we will optimize the time by cutting the vegetables while cooking the chicken in the pressure cooker.

In the meantime, take the lettuce, place it on a cutting board and cut it finely as in the picture, wash and dry it, using a salad spinner.

Now it’s up to the olives … cut them into small washers.

Place the salad, tomatoes and olives in a large bowl and season with salt and turn very well, then add the oil. This is because the oil is not able to dissolve the salt and using this order the salt is better amalgamated with the salad and not with the oil.
