Spring Chicken & Blue Cheese Salad Recipe at
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine yogurt, garlic, oil and tarragon in a large bowl. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to the bowl; turn to coat. Place the chicken in a baking dish and cover completely with the yogurt mixture.

Bake until the chicken is cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, about 35 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Thinly slice the chicken when cool enough to handle.

Gently toss lettuce, radicchio and arugula (or mixed greens) in a large bowl. Divide the greens among 4 plates, top with equal portions of the chicken, spoon 2 tablespoons Creamy Blue Cheese-Tarragon Dressing over each salad and sprinkle with walnuts.

Tip: Spread whole walnuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.
