    It was easy, but I thought it tasted quite bland. I had to kick it up a little. You can see my results here: http://marthaandme.wordpress.com/2010/02/17/easy-chicken-salad/

    Decided to try out the poached chicken recipe in this month's issue (Jan 2010) and the chicken salad recipe seemed relatively simple. This recipe was a surefire hit in my household. So simple, with wonderful flavor. Tastes very fresh and the yogurt is a refreshing light taste and not as heavy as mayo
