We kind of fell behind on the recipe blog the last couple of weeks with the MyZone challenge and our Team building trip to the Perform Better Functional Training Summit. So, this week we have a quick and easy recipe for you, Greek yogurt chicken salad. This recipe comes from Lee Funke via fitfoodie.com see the link below.
Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad
I don’t know about you, but we eat a lot of chicken, so we are always looking for healthy way to make it, or to use up the leftovers. This Greek yogurt chicken salad is an ideal way to use chicken and it is great for meal prepping. It is a tasty, high protein, low fat recipe that you can make on Sunday and store 3-4 days in the fridge for weekday lunches or snacks.
As with a lot of the recipes we bring you, there are substitutions that can be made if you don’t like something. For example, if you don’t like onion, you can substitute additional celery. Not fond of dried cranberries, try raisins instead. Just be aware that substitutions may change the nutritional information.
This recipe makes about 4 servings. If you are making it for a picnic or family gathering you may want to double or triple the recipe. Here is what you will need to prepare your Greek yogurt chicken salad.
1 lb cooked, shredded chicken breast
1 large green apple, chopped
¼ cup red onion, finely chopped
2 large celery stalks, finely chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries
