Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound (2 small whole breasts) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped tarragon
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup finely diced fennel
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes, cut in half
  • 6 slices pumpernickel bread
  • 1 bunch watercress, tough stems removed
  • Olive-oil cooking spray

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Combine salt and pepper in a bowl. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with some of the salt mixture; place in saute pan. Reduce heat to medium; cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes (flip halfway through cooking time). Remove from pan; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In a bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, chives, tarragon, and remaining salt mixture. Core the apple, and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Place in a medium bowl with lemon juice, and toss to combine. Add fennel, celery, and grapes. Cut reserved chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. Add to salad with yogurt dressing; stir to combine. Serve on pumpernickel bread, open-faced, with watercress.

    I'm sure they mean fennel bulb. You're thinking of fennel seed. Chopped fennel bulb would be very good in this...

    My sister made this for my bridal shower and it was fabulous.

    Uh.... 1 cup of finely diced fennel? Does that read correctly?
