Rotisserie chicken is a great time-saver on busy evenings. Freeze any extra meat in portion sizes, and use in future recipes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Spread walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake at 350° for 5 minutes or until nuts are toasted. Cool.

Step 3

Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a bowl; stir to combine. Set aside.

Step 4

Place chicken, toasted walnuts, parsley, and green onions in a large bowl; toss to combine. Add dressing, stirring well to coat.

Step 5

Place 1 lettuce leaf in each of 6 bowls. Divide chicken salad evenly among the bowls; top with cherries.
