Sometimes you need a quick and easy no cooking summer recipe.
This fits the bill perfectly, and with my adaptations it's actually a bit on the healthier side
than most mayonnaise heavy chicken salads.
My husband loves this, my kids and grandkids love this, and it's a favorite of friends as well.
Won't they be surprised to read this and find out it actually takes no real cooking skill!
We love this chicken salad served in pita pockets.
The grandkids prefer it served on a saucer with a side of crackers.
If you're watching your carbs, you can eat it wrapped up in lettuce leaves.
If you're not, try it on some grilled baguette or inside a yummy croissant or eat it in your favorite wrap.
It all starts with this, two cans of Kirkland chicken breast from Costco.
Each can is a little over 12 oz.
(you could also use chopped up rotisserie chicken or home grilled or roasted chicken breast)
To chicken add:
1/3 cup mayonnaise (I use olive oil mayo)
1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup roughly chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
1/2 cup grape halves (raisins or dried cranberries can be used as well)
salt and pepper to taste
That's all there is to it!
Keep the ingredients on hand for those "I don't want to cook" days and enjoy!
It's almost Friday, friends.
HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!
