How to make it 

  • The chicken breasts should be cooked in a pot of water that has been brought to a boil until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Roughly fifteen minutes. After taking the chicken out of the water, allow it to cool down, and then shred it using two forks.
  • Utilizing a knife, roughly chop the chicken that has been shredded into much smaller pieces. Put aside for later. Combine the mayonnaise, cane sugar, white vinegar, Dijon mustard, warm water, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix until everything is well combined. Using a whisk, thoroughly combine the ingredients.
  • Add the shredded chicken, green apple that has been diced, celery that has been sliced, red grapes that have been cut in half, and pieces of walnuts. Depending on your preference, season with a pinch of salt and some cracked black pepper. Sprinkle some chopped Italian parsley on top. It can be served immediately, or it can be covered and stored in the refrigerator.
