Marinated Chicken and Chickpea Salad

With the variety of cooked chicken products now available, this chicken salad takes no time at all. Be aware, however, that convenient items like cooked chicken strips or frozen chicken chunks often contain about 700mg more sodium than freshly baked chicken (per 3-ounce serving). If you are concerned about sodium in your diet, opt for cooking your own chicken (about 60mg sodium per 3-ounce serving).

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup chicken salad and about 1/2 cup arugula)
