Cranberry Dill Chicken Salad with Kathy Fang

We’ve partnered with acclaimed chef Kathy Fang, winner of Chopped and owner of Fang Restaurant in San Francisco. Here is another video in an original series sponsored by Perdue Harvestland All Natural Chicken and All-Clad. Here is a recipe for a super fresh and mouth watering chicken salad with fresh dill and dried cranberries. Great for a Sunday brunch, or take it to go for a weekday picnic. Substitute Greek yogurt for the mayo for a healthier protein rich version.
