Fantastic! Cooking the chicken with the bay leaves imparted a really flavorful profile! I did boil the bay leaves for about five minutes before adding the chicken, and I think that made it even more flavorful. My yogurt had gone bad, so had to use full fat sour cream instead, and I admit it was delicious. Loved the combo of lemon zest and thyme - all in all one of the best chicken salads I've ever tasted. Thanks for sharing - this is definitely Best Of material, Teresa!

We could have made this into three or four sandwiches, but we were famished. The yogurt tasted good in this. I used nonfat yogurt to make it even healthier. The recipe said to shred the chicken, however, I chopped the chicken up into tiny pieces. I also did not have any bay leaves.
