Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad

With Spring in full swing and the Summer months slowly coming towards us, quick and cold recipes are a must!  To me, there’s nothing better than cold food after a sweaty workout or on a hot day!

Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad really hits the spot and is super simple to make for lunch or dinner.  Not to mention it’s packed with extra protein from the greek yogurt as opposed to using mayonnaise.  Hello swapportunity!

The amount of yogurt, mustard, garlic powder, grapes, and almonds will vary on how much chicken salad you plan on making, and to your tastebuds.  We’re all different, my recipes are flexible, use it as a guideline but if you want twice the amount of mustard, then do what pleases your palate!

Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad
Shredded Chicken*
(Click here for a recipe on how to make juicy chicken in bulk to shred)
1-2 scoops of PLAIN greek yogurt
1 generous squirt of Yellow Mustard
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Shake of  Garlic Powder
Grapes, cut in half (optional but are a nice addition since the yogurt makes the salad a bit tart)
Sliced Almonds (optional)
Tomato Slices (optional)

– *The shredded chicken can also be baked using a marinade or alternative seasoning, which may omit the need for the grapes!
– You can just boil chicken and shred it to use with this recipe, BUT it will be a bit tart, so I recommend the grapes or adding seasoning!

Breadless Options:
Cucumber sandwiches or Scoop up with Cucumbers
Red Peppers stuffed with chicken salad
Lettuce Wraps
Tomato Slices – a bit messy!
Just eat it in a bowl or on your plate!
