When it is hot in the kitchen, who wants to cook? The Instant Pot makes this dilemma an easy one to fix. Cooking a whole chicken in the IP is easy-peasy, and it does not heat up an already hot room!
I had cooked a chicken and then our plans changed, so the cooked chicken got put into the fridge to await further instructions. Late one night, I threw this salad together and could not believe how DELISH it was! I wanted to NOT have a really heavy mayo salad, just enough to hold it together, and this turned out just right – moist, but not gummy.
I have a veggie chopper that makes short work of doing a small dice, so for consistency, I chopped the onions, celery and purple basil quite small. The onion and the basil were from my garden, making me even happier when I went to eat this lovely salad at work the next day.
