Recipe Ingredients for Wheat Berry and Chicken Salad

300 g chicken breast, shredded (about 2 breasts)
1 tsp salt
270 g wheat berries (1.5 cups)
200 g celery, diced (about 2 stalks)
100 g onion, diced
150 g grape tomatoes, sliced in half (about 1/2 pint)
1/2 c lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Wheat Berry and Chicken Salad

  1. Poach the chicken in water and salt for 30 minutes. I prefer using bone-in for better flavour.

  2. While poaching, rinse the wheatberries in cold water and let sit.

  3. Dice celery. I like a small dice for this.

  4. Dice onion. As above.

  5. Remove chicken from water once it's cooked. Set aside to cool a bit.

  6. Bring remaining water/stock to a boil. Add drained wheatberry and reduce to a simmer. Top with boiling water if necessary to make about 3 cups of water/stock. About 60-90 minutes.

  7. Wash tomatoes, slice in half.

  8. Shred chicken while still warm with a fork.

  9. When the wheat berries are almost done (the grains should have a chew and not be mushy), reduce liquid and let stand with cover off.

  10. Mix ingredients together once wheat berry has cooled.
