    Irish Rose's Note:

    This is the Barefoot Contessa's favorite chicken salad sandwich. I absolutely love all of her recipes and this was no exception. She roasts her chickens rather than poaching them to insure that the chicken stays moist. I have tried it both ways and I think I have to agree with Ina, I like the roasting method best. However, use whatever method you prefer.

      Place the chicken breasts, skin side up, on a sheet pan and rub them with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

      Roast for 35-40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Set aside to cool.

      To assemble, spread a little mayo on half the bread slices, top with the chicken salad and amount of mixed salad greens you prefer.

      I baked boneless chicken breasts (since that's what I had on hand) and added currants. This was an excellent chicken salad. I loved the texture of the chicken- it's the best texture for chicken salad! Thank Irish Rose, for posting- Roxygirl

      This made a delicious sandwich! I would not have thought to add tarragon to chicken salad but it really makes the flavor come alive. I think that making the sandwich with the 7-grain bread is key - it really complements the bold flavor of the filling. This is a wonderful sandwich and I will definitely make it again!

      The roasting made the chicken very moist. I had never added tarragon to my chicken salad before. It made a great addition and I will use it from now on.
