chop the food
place torn chicken breasts into processor and press start. hold
chop button for 3 seconds and assess. if chicken needs to be

small pieces without any visible chunks. depending on your food
processor’s speed and capabilities, be sure to not over chop.
repeat the above process with the onion, celery and dill pickles.
chop each ingredient separately and in 3 second increments. pay
attention to the food pieces in the processor. you do not want to
over chop. with celery in particular, over chopping can cause a
build up of moisture and result in mushy celery. this can easily
be avoided by only chopping your food in no more than 3 second
