Preparation
Preparation Method

1, Rinse the chicken breasts thoroughly and cut each breast into 3 or 4 smaller pieces.
2 ,Bring nicely salted water to a boil in a big saucepan along with the onions, carrots, garlic, parsley, cilantro and black pepper powder.
3, Add the chicken pieces to the pan. Reduce heat to medium low. Cover and cook the chicken for 15 minutes.
4, Turn off the stove and allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes while you assemble the other ingredients for the salad.
5, To prepare the dressing for the salad, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, fruit preserve, lemon juice, paprika powder, black pepper powder and salt in another bowl. Do a taste test to see if the flavors are balanced. Stir the dressing until smooth.

In a large bowl, toss the diced chicken, bell peppers, spring onions, grapes and chopped nuts.
7, Pour the dressing into the chicken and mix gently until combined.
