Healthy Chicken Salad With Greek Yogurt

So growing up and living in East Lansing, Michigan for most of my life, there has always 

been a special place in my heart for the Chicken Salad Croissant from Frandor Deli!!  I used to leave campus in high school with my friends and pick one up, and all the years since I would make sure I would stop in when I needed a Chicken Salad fix!  

BUT .... that has now all ended!  Because I have found a few different healthy recipes online in the past year or so and I have come up with a pretty good combination.  If I do say so myself!  But please, try it for yourself and leave me a comment to let me know how you like it!  

The first time I made a batch, I made it with plain greek yogurt and served it on Homemade Whole Wheat bread!  And it was AH-MAZING!!  This most recent batch I ONLY had vanilla greek yogurt, (which of course I didn't realize until after my chicken was done!), but it turned out FANTASTIC!!

What You Need:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt 
  • 1-1/2 cups celery, diced
  • 1-1/2 cups grapes, cut in half
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Fresh Greens, such as baby spinach, arugula, mesclun, etc.
  • Homemade Whole Wheat Bread 

What You Need To Do:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add chicken breasts and boil for 20 minutes or until fully cooked.
  1. Remove chicken from boiling water and cool completely in refrigerator.
  1. After the chicken has completely cooled, cut them into large chunks.  Mix with the yogurt, mayonnaise, celery, grapes, salt, and pepper.
  1. Serve on bread or croissants with leafy greens.  Or just on a bed of lettuce if you aren't in the mood for a sandwich!
