Cooking Chicken Pineapple Salad:
Step 1: prepare the fillet.
Boil the washed chicken fillet or skin-free breast in salted water. If desired, add the same allspice or bay leaf. You need to cook white meat for 20-30 minutes.
Remove the boiled chicken from the pan with the resulting broth, cool slightly and cut into small cubes, stripes or tear into fibers.
Important: it is imperative to completely defrost the chicken before cooking.
Step 2: prepare the eggs.
Rinse chicken eggs, put in a saucepan, completely fill with water and put on fire. Wait for the water to boil, turn down the power and cook for another 10-13 minutes. During this time, the eggs will be boiled hard, which is what we need. So in the end it remains only to lower them under running cold water, completely cool, and then clear them from the shell.
Cut the peeled and cooked eggs into small cubes, or you can even grate them, if you prefer.
Step 3: prepare the pineapples.
Pineapples, it doesn’t matter if you have slices or slices, you need to cut into small cubes, after pouring sugar syrup from the fruit.
Step 4: prepare the cheese.
Grind cheese with a medium or very fine grater. You can also use a food processor or blender to save time.
Step 5: mix the pineapple salad with chicken.
Place all the ingredients in a deep plate, add black ground pepper and salt to taste, then season with mayonnaise and mix thoroughly to evenly distribute the spices. Then the finished salad can be served to the table, or you can cool it a bit, allowing to stand in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. The main thing is to make sure before serving that enough salt, pepper and dressing are added to the dish.
Step 6: serve the pineapple salad with chicken.
Pineapple salad with chicken can be a great addition to your lunch, and its light and interesting taste will increase appetite. Therefore, serve it along with a hot main course. At the same time, you can decompose the salad into portions, decorating each with fresh herbs, slices of pineapple or lemon, or you can leave it in the salad bowl.

- Instead of canned pineapples, it’s quite possible to take fresh ones, it turns out not so sweet, but also very tasty.
