Sonoma Chicken Salad

Scroll down to watch the step-by-step video.

This version of chicken salad is the most popular chicken salad sold at Whole Foods to date.  It has lots of flavor and texture and I just love how the poppy seeds add an extra surprise!

I used Greek yogurt to create that cool and creamy dressing but you could certainly stick to the original and use real mayo OR if you can’t decide, do a 50/50 split.

This salad is by far at it’s best when made with fresh baked chicken breasts but if you’re in a pinch, some store-bought rotisserie chicken will work just fine.
