Warm Chicken and Apple Salad

½ cup raisins
½ cup apple juice
¾ lb skinless chicken, diced
2 green apples, diced
2 tsp each grated lemon rind and juice
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ cup walnut halves, roasted
1 bunch romaine or mixed lettuce

Dressing:

Place the raisins and apple juice in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add the chicken, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked. Drain and discard liquid. Place the apples, lemon rind and juice, celery, and walnuts in a bowl. Toss to combine. Combine the yogurt and mayonnaise and toss with the salad. Arrange lettuce in a bowl or on plates. Top with the salad and spoon the chicken and raisins over all.
