Oxmoor House
Hands-on time 14 mins
Total time 14 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
Tarragon and rye bread make a classic chicken salad sandwich extra special. You can make the chicken salad ahead. If you're packing it to go, keep the salad cold, and make your sandwich right before you're ready to eat to keep the bread from getting soggy.


  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 3 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup minced sweet onion
  • 8 (1 1/2-ounce) slices rye sandwich bread
  • 4 red leaf lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup microgreens or arugula
