This chicken salad takes on extra fresh flavor with roasted chicken breasts, a little lemon, and fresh chopped herbs. Serve this lively chicken salad in sandwiches or in lettuce cups for a delicious lunch or light supper.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6.


  • 3 to 4 chicken breast halves, boneless, skin removed
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dillweed or about 1/4 teaspoons dried dillweed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or basil, or about 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
