2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken

  • Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the ends from the celery; cut the celery on the diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices.
  • Cut the peach in half and remove the pit; cut the fruit into ½-inch pieces.
  • Remove any stems from the grapes; cut the grapes in half.
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.


Make the Waldorf salad

In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, peach, grapes, walnuts, and as much lemon-garlic aioli as you like (set aside any remaining aioli for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Divide the mixed greens between individual plates. Top with the Waldorf chicken salad and serve with any remaining aoili.
