Sassy Summer Salad!

August 16, 2018

 Nothing beats homemade chicken salad on a hot summer day! So I created this very forgiving recipe. Feel free to substitute your favorite ingredients for an enticing twist.

 

INGREDIENTS:
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or 4-5 thighs)
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup pecan pieces + extra for garnish (or walnuts)
1/2 Gala or Green apple, chopped (or handful of dried cranberries)
2 stalks celery, chopped
5 oz. container Greek pineapple yogurt (or flavor of choice)
1/2 cup mayo (empty yogurt cup full)
Lemon pepper

Basil

Sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS:
1. Cook chicken and broth in crockpot. (Frozen 4 hours on high; fresh 3-4 hours on low.) Or simmer on stove until cooked through.
2. Remove chicken and set out to cool on cutting board. (Reserve broth for another use.)
3. Slice chicken and shred using 2 forks.
4. Place shredded chicken into a large bowl.
5. Stir pecans, apple and celery into shredded chicken.
6. Add yogurt and mayo.
7. Lightly sprinkle in seasonings.
8. Stir to combine thoroughly.
9. Taste test for seasonings and adjust if needed.
10. Serve over mixed greens and garnish with pecans or dried cranberries.

 

Makes 6 cups of chicken salad.

 

For a delicious sandwich, spread this on your favorite bread. I love it on toasted cinnamon bread with a little extra mayo, lettuce and tomato. Yum Yum!
