5 pounds (2,400 g) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
3/4 cup (150 g) nonfat sour cream
3/4 cup (150 g) nonfat mayonnaise

4 celery ribs, strings removed, and cut into small dice
1/2 cup (75 g) walnuts
1/4 cup (12 g) chopped fresh tarragon

Poach the chicken breasts in simmering broth until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool, and cut into bite-sized pieces.
In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise and vinegar.
Combine the chicken and dressing. (Can be made ahead and refrigerated to this point 1 day in advance.)
Before serving, add the celery, walnuts, tarragon and pepper to taste. Place mixture in a large serving bowl. Garnish with tarragon.
