Healthy Chicken Salad

  • I love having leftover chicken because it means I get to make chicken salad and have lunch made up for a few days. This not your average chicken salad. It is full of protein and low in fat and I certainly don’t feel guilty about eating a full cup of it!

    Fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
    3/4 C walnuts, chopped
    Put chicken in a food processor, or blender or just chop it up until desired texture is reached. Put chicken in a bowl along with yogurt and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Gently fold in grapes, celery and walnuts. Serve cold.
    Do you ever try to make the “perfect bite?”

    For this recipe I used leftover grilled chicken. You don’t have to wait until you have leftovers though. A lot of grocery stores have rotisserie chicken already cooked that you can buy, or you could just bake a few pieces for this recipe. While I was making this classic style of chicken salad my wheels started turning. I’m thinking a Greek style might be nice next time. :)
