Dottie's Chicken Salad

3 Chicken breast, 3 legs, and 3 thighs skin on
1 to 1 1/2 cups red seedless grapes, cut in half
3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 cup Kojak, Colby, or Cheddar cheese diced
3/4 cup celery, sliced
1/3 cup slivered almonds

Except for the chicken the measurements are approximate.

Place chicken in a pot and cover with water, season with salt & pepper to taste and add a bouquet garni. Cook about 30-45 minutes or until chicken is done. Take chicken out and when it is cool enough it needs to be diced and refrigerated.

The stock is great for freezing for future use.

When the chicken is cold add the grapes, peas, cheese, celery, and almonds and toss.

3/4 cup Miracle Whip® or Mayonaise
1 Tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
2-3 Tablespoons of vinegar

Mix these ingredients then thin with milk to a consistency of salad dressing.

Pour over salad and toss. Serve
