There are a bazillion versions of chicken salad but one thing many have in common is the tarragon that is added. Some people will put grapes or nuts or pineapple but tarragon seems to be a consistent ingredient. The prime thing to remember when you make chicken salad is to use just the skinless breast of the chicken or you are defeating the purpose of selecting something that is low in fat.
Use either ciabatta or a really good multi grain bread for your base. You will be amazed how the two flavors will come alive so instead of thinking it’s just a boring chicken salad you will have your taste buds dancing in your mouth! Enjoy!!
