Rosemary Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Tonight I used some leftover chicken to make my favorite chicken salad recipe. I use plain greek yogurt and rosemary from our garden. I like the crunch of the almonds but if you don't like nuts, you can easily leave them out. If you like onions, add a couple tablespoons of chopped green onions (or red onion would be good).

With the yogurt, nuts, and chicken, these pack a big protein punch. Usually I serve it in pita pockets and line the pita with a lettuce leaf but it's also good on bread and by itself. The flavor of the rosemary comes out if it's refrigerated a little while before serving so this is a good make ahead recipe. And, when I get around to that Rotisserie Chicken cookbook, this will be in it!

Rosemary Chicken Salad Sandwiches (4 sandwiches)

3 c. chopped cooked chicken
1/4 c. chopped roasted almonds
1/4 c. plain fat free yogurt
1/4 c. light mayonnaise
