  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 tsp Olive Oil
  • 40 oz, with bone, raw, without skin (yield after cooking, bone removed) Chicken Breast (Skin Not Eaten)
  • 0 2/3 cup Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 0 1/2 cup, chopped Red Onions
  • 2 medium (2-3/4" dia) (approx 3 per lb) Apples
  • 1 oz Black Currants (European)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. To make rub, combine paprika, onion powder and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a cup. Pat chicken dry with paper towels; sprinkle both sides evenly with the rub.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken; cook 1 1/2 minutes per side, until browned. Transfer breasts to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
  4. Bake chicken 10 to 12 minutes, just until cooked through. Wrap chicken in foil and let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 1-inch chunks.
  5. Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add finely diced onion, currants, diced apples and chicken; toss to coat.
  6. Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
