Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with half of the salt-pepper mixture; place in the skillet. Reduce heat to medium; cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from the pan; set aside.

  • In a bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, chives, tarragon, and remaining salt-pepper mixture. Core apple, and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Place apple 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. Divide salad among 6 slices pumpernickel bread, and sprinkle with watercress.


The chicken salad can also be served over a bed of mixed greens for a lighter lunch.

MMM! Worth the 30 minutes it took for me to do all the chopping/prep. This is a 10/10 recipe. Love it and would make it again- and it yields a lot. I did substitute a third of the yogurt for mayo. I also used 2% plain Greek yogurt for extra protein. And I had some dried currants around, so threw in a small handful of those too. I highly recommend this recipe if you have the time to make it.

A healthy chicken salad sandwich. I love the use of yogurt instead of mayo. I can't find fennel around here so I increased the amount of celery and apples.
