Chicken Salad


  • a plump 1-year old chicken
  • 1/2 tablespoonful salt
  • 2 onions
  • 1 nice bunch celery
  • Mayonaise No. 1
  • 1/2 cup capers


Select a plump 1-year old chicken for this; singe and draw it, wash in cold water and put the chicken in a kettle; cover with boiling water, add the salt and onions; cover and boil slowly till tender; when done remove the kettle from the fire and let the chicken remain in the broth till cold; then take it out, remove the skin and bones and cut the meat into small pieces; take the white part of the celery and cut it very fine; add it to the finely cut chicken, pour over mayonaise and set it on ice for 2 hours before serving; when ready to serve put the salad into a salad dish and garnish with the small celery tops, which should lay for 1 hour in ice water; stick them all around in the salad and sprinkle the capers all over the salad. Some freshly grated cocoanut sprinkled over this salad is a great improvement; or garnish to taste.
