New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple is very tasty and simple. It takes quite a bit of time to cook it, especially if the chicken and eggs are boiled the day before. I advise you to prepare the ingredients in advance - boil, chop, put into separate containers, and a few hours before the arrival of the guests - mix and season. Smoked chicken breast is also suitable for this recipe, even chicken will not have to be cooked. By the way, I advise you to remember this recipe for cases when guests are about to come to you unexpectedly.New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple

A method of preparing a New Year's salad with chicken and pineapple
Cut boiled chicken breast into small cubes, put in a large bowl. To make the meat juicy, it must be properly cooked. So, on the eve of cooking, put the chilled chicken breast in a small pan, pour cold water so that it covers the chicken, pour 2 teaspoons of salt.
Add a bunch of dill, a clove of garlic, several parsley and peppercorns. On high heat, bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook, closing the pan with a lid, 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of the breast). We leave the boiled chicken in the broth for the night. The next day will be the perfect meat for salads and snacks.
We clean hard-boiled chicken eggs, we separate the yolks from the proteins. We leave the yolks to decorate the dish. Grate the proteins on a coarse grater, add to the chicken.

P.S. Such a tasty and healthy salad can be at a stretch attributed to recipes for proper nutrition, if you replace the ready-made mayonnaise with homemade, cooked in high-quality olive oil or completely abandon the mayonnaise, replacing it with sour cream and table mustard.
