Easy, Healthy, *Drool Worthy* Chicken salad!

This is a recipe that I often bring to get togethers when I don’t have the time to make anything else!

It ALWAYS gets rave reviews, and people are usually surprised with how easy it comes together! Its a great snack, or quick lunch, and is full of nutrients

The secret ingredient? Yoghurt!

Switching out all mayo, and sour cream from our food has done wonders for our diets! I find that I put yoghurt in almost everything these days! A good greek yogurt is best, but you can use whatever plain yoghurt you can find.

Heres what you need:

  • Shredded chicken, or all white meat chunk chicken from a can (one can, drained and fluffed with a fork) . Its actually surprisingly delicious in this recipe, and cuts down on the prep time
  • Plain Yoghurt
  • Honey Mustard (Or honey, and dijon)
  • Craisens
  • Half a granny smith apple, diced
  • Chopped Pecans (I omitted this time because i didn’t have any on hand)
  • Sandwich roll, pita bread, wrap, etc (optional)
  • Swiss cheese (optional0
  • Spring greens (optional)

Add a heaping spoonful of yoghurt, just enough to wet all the ingredients, and about a table spoon of honey mustard.

Or serve it with a spoon and some crackers. Or in a wrap with cheddar and tomatoes. Or spread on a buttered toasted bagel!

The possibilities are endless, as this is one chicken salad recipe you won’t feel guilty indulging in!

Enjoy my friends!
