Healthy Chicken Salad
Traditional chicken salad that’s made with mayonnaise can add up to over 500 calories per sandwich. Did you know you could substitute one secret ingredient that will give you the same texture and feel that you love while cutting the fat and calories in half? Try subbing in non-fat Greek yogurt and serve your chicken salad over a bed of lettuce, in a wheat pita pocket, or on top of an English muffin for a lighter lunch. You won’t even miss the mayo, I promise!
- 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, poached
- 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup celery, diced
- 1/4 cup apple, diced
- 1/3 cup red grapes, halved
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
Dice poached chicken breasts and place in a large bowl. Mix in Greek yogurt until all the chicken is coated evenly.
Add celery, apple, grapes, and almonds to the bowl and mix in.
Enjoy immediately; store remaining chicken salad in fridge.
