 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3       lb           Whole chicken breasts
                         Salt
      1/4   c            Light vegetable oil
    2       c            Chopped Vidalia onions
      3/4   c            Walnuts, lightly toasted
      1/4   c            Finely chopped scallions
      3/4   c            Finely chopped cilantro
    1 1/3   c            Homemade mayonnaise
                         You may use commercial mayo
                         Fresh ground black peppe
 
   Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan with enough
   water to cover. Bring to a boil, add 1/2 teaspoon
   salt, reduce the heat, and simmer until the chicken is
   cooked through, about 15 minutes. Drain the chicken
   and allow to cool. Remove and discard the skin. Remove
   the chicken from the bones and tear the meat into
   shreds. Place in a salad bowl and set aside. Heat the
   oil in a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat.
   Saute the onions, stirring, until deep golden brown,
   about 20 minutes. Drain the onions and add them to the
   chicken. Cool to room temperature. Add the walnuts,
   scallions, and cilantro to the chicken. Toss with the
   mayonnaise and season with salt and pepper. Serve the
   salad at room temperature.
