April 2, 2011 - Chicken Salad
Today I tried a new recipe for lunch. It was a chicken salad recipe that Emily had shared with us last week. Since I normally make chicken salad with Miracle Whip and I usually enjoy a sweet chicken salad.... I was surprised how much I liked this recipe since it's not sweet.
3 cups chopped chicken breasts (I poached mine, but the recipe calls to roast them)
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped pecans (recipe calls for smoked almonds)
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise (recipe calls for light)
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
I think golden raisins would be really good in this chicken salad and will try that next time. I also think chicken on the bone would make the chicken more juicy.
This recipe is fast and easy and quite tasty. Enjoy!
