    cookiedog's Note:

    This salad using a rotisserie chicken could be served over lettuce leaves or in a sandwich. It has less fat than many chicken salad recipes because yogurt replaces some of the Mayo. Recipe is from Sunset Magazine Dec. 2007

      I thought the chilis and ginger sounded like a huge amount, but they weren't, and were the best part - I wished there were more! I used Greek yogurt and less butter and salt.

      This may be the best chicken salad I've tasted! It's quite lemony; the juice and zest of one lemon is enough for lots of flavor. My rotisserie chicken was only 2 lbs. and all the other ingredients worked perfectly. You'd never guess that half the mayo has been replaced with yogurt. Because I don't have a spice grinder, I skipped toasting the seeds and used ground coriander and cumin in Step#3. You may want to make this in advance and chill before serving. Outstanding recipe!
