    2 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
    2 cups Buttermilk
    For the Chicken: Place the chicken breasts and buttermilk in a medium saute pan and bring to a simmer. The buttermilk will appear to curdle or break - this is okay, as the milk will be discarded once the chicken is cooked. Simmer the chicken in the milk for 20 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through. Remove from heat and lift the chicken from the buttermilk. Refrigerate the chicken for 30 minutes.

    1 Granny Smith Apple (thinly sliced)
    1/4 cup chopped Dried Apricots
    1/4 cup thinly sliced Red Onion
    1 Celery stalk (peeled and sliced thin on the bias)
    Juice of 1 Lemon
    Salt
    Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the apple, dried apricots, red onion, celery, and lemon juice to the bowl and mix together until combined. Fold in the dressing until fully incorporated and season with salt it desired.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. The buttermilk may curdle while poaching but this is okay!
    2. You can soak the red onion in cold, salted water to reduce the strong onion taste.
