Poached-Chicken-Salad Sandwiches

Cooking chicken breasts slowly in simmering water ensures they'll be tender, not rubbery. Onion and salt in the water add flavor without fat. If you have them on hand, you can also toss in a bay leaf, lemon peel, or whole peppercorns.

    I just made this, it's delicious. I used dried cranberries instead of golden raisins. The tarragon adds a very nice flavor. I love the poached chicken!
