Shopping List
  • 12 ounces poached chicken breasts (or rotisserie chicken, Note 1)
  • 1/2 cup seedless grapes, halved
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup red onions, finely chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh herb of choice, chopped (such as dill, tarragon, or parsley)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (Note 2)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Dice the cooled chicken into bite-sized pieces. Place it in a mixing bowl.
  2. Step 2: Add the sliced grapes, chopped walnuts, red onion, optional celery, and herbs to the bowl with the chicken.
  3. Step 3: Stir together the tahini, lemon juice, and olive oil until smooth. Pour this tahini sauce over the chicken and stir until all of the ingredients are coated in the creamy sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve: Enjoy in wraps, over salad, or on its own.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: This should make about 2 heaping cups of cooked, diced chicken.

Note 2: A good tahini can make a world of difference in how this recipe turns out. The texture and flavor depends on the type of sesame seed used, the roast level, and how those seeds are processed. Look for a tahini that's light in color and very runny. It should taste rich and slightly sweet, not at all abrasive.
