Sonoma Chicken Salad

Serves 8
Time 40 min
This chicken salad is one of our classic Whole Foods Market dishes. The tender chicken breast, crunchy pecans and sweet grapes in each bite are hard to top. Instead of mayonnaise, try substituting plain Greek yogurt for a lower-fat version, or try a combination of both.

Method

In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, poppy seeds, salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use. This can be prepared up to 2 days ahead.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Place chicken breasts in one layer in a baking dish with 1/2 cup water. Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes until completely cooked through.

Remove cooked chicken breasts from pan, cool at room temperature for 20 minutes, then cover and refrigerate until cold.

When the chicken is cold, cut into bite-size cubes and transfer to a large bowl.

Stir in pecans, grapes, celery and prepared dressing.
