1) Do use chicken breasts that have the bone and the skin;
2) Do use real mayonaise;
1) Don't use boneless, skinless chicken breasts;
2) Don't use dark meat;
3) Don't use that nasty Miracle Whip
The easy way is to put the chicken breasts in the crock pot that you got at a yard sale,
When it's done, put the chicken in a colander
Strain the broth in a mesh strainer so that it filters out all the little pieces of bone and stuff you don't want in there:
Use kitchen scissors and cut across the grain of the chicken.
Add salt, mayonnaise, and little pieces of celery (I cut the celery in half lengthwise, and then cut each one of those halves in half, then cut across all four pieces).
At today's shower, however, I put celery in one-half of the chicken salad and in the other half, I put green grapes that I had quartered, and chopped pecans.
And the broth that you have strained????
Put it in the freezer until you're ready to make soup.
Cabbage that has been run through the food processor (why run it through the food processor, you ask? To disguise it. Because for certain, you will be feeding someone who says they don't like cabbage),
Salt and pepper,
Chopped up chicken
Cook it until the cabbage is "clear" enough that people-who-don't-like-cabbage can't tell it's in there.
While that's cooking, make you a little cornbread and set your buttermilk on the table to go with it.
