We used the canned chicken that you get from Costco or any grocery store. Feel free to use your own chicken breast that you bake yourself.

For the creamy base we used plain Greek Yogurt. Give it a try, you’ll be surprised!

How To Make Chicken Salad

  1. Combine chicken, greek yogurt, honey, mustard, dill relish, and chia seed into large bowl. Mix together until chicken is shredded.
  2. Add and mix in, chopped cucumber, celery, and grapes. Add garlic salt to taste. Squeeze lemon, add salt and pepper into chicken salad and combine.
  3. When making a sandwich, salad, or wrap, sprinkle grape nuts over the top for a crunch.

Celery and cucumber please!

Sliced grapes! Give a good stir then squeeze lemon on top and pepper to taste. Plate over a nice bed of arugula or lettuce, or in a wrap or sandwich. Most of the time, we don’t get to the sandwich phase, we ending up eating the salad with crackers.

    I could probably eat chicken salad every day for lunch! There’s so many options for mix-ins, you’d never get bored. I like the idea of adding chia seeds…I was pumped off them for a while after reading Born to Run, but now we aren’t stocked up. Thanks for the reminder! I love them in the summer with water and a squirt of lemon or lime juice!

    I LOVE chicken salad but not the calories and fat that come with it, so thank you for this! I have a question though – I plan to use my own chicken breasts. How much do you think I would need to equal the canned amount you use?

    Andrea says:

    So delicious! The yogurt dressing is the best! I usually don’t care for yogurt dressings,but this one is great! I grilled two marinated chicken breasts instead of canned chicken. Added a ton of flavor. Because I was out of cucumber and celery, I substituted finely diced yellow peppers. This makes 4 large or 8 smallish portions. (4 PP or 2 PP) thanks fort this recipe.
