Warm Dilled Chicken and Potato Salad

Doesn't that sound wonderful? "Warm Dilled Chicken and Potato Salad" - yummmmmm... Reading the recipe, putting on my shoes, driving to the grocery store, getting the ingredients I didn't have (most of them I did have), breezing through the register, rushing back home, throwing the salad together in no time, endulging myself in it - it all happened at the same time! I just couldn't wait. And, you guessed it, I didn't get disappointed. At all. The salad is wonderful! So I made it again. And again. And again... By now, I guess, you can say, I've become quite a compulsive Warm Dilled Chicken and Potato Salad maker ... and eater. :-)))

Ingredients (to serve two):

1 pound small, red-skinned potatoes, cut into salad-size chunks
1/2 cup bottled peppercorn ranch salad dressing
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper, any color or combination of colors

Tip: I'm a single-household compulsive Warm Dilled Chicken and Potato Salad maker ... and eater, but that's okay: I take left-overs to the office and enjoy them for lunch - this salad is delicious warm and cold! :-)

Preparation (20 minutes):

1. In a large, covered saucepan, cook potatoes in slightly salted, boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes (until tender); drain.

2. Meanwhile, for dressing, in a small bowl, combine peppercorn ranch salad dressing, dill, and mustard.

3. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut into bite-size strips, season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook and stir chicken in hot oil for about 5 minutes or until done.

4. In a salad bowl, combine cooked chicken, cooked potatoes and chopped bell pepper. Pour dressing over potato mixture and toss gently to coat salad ingredients with dressing.
