Emily's Chicken Salad
makes 6 servings, adapted from Pioneer Woman
Handful of Cilantro (or other fresh herb like Oregano, Rosemary, Dill), minced
1/2 cup light/reduced fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
1-2 Tbsp lemon juice
1-2 Tbsp brown sugar
Salt and ground pepper to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper
Rotisserie chicken, cut up with any fatty pieces thrown out
1-2 handful of Craisens
2-3 Green onions, chopped
2 Granny Smith apples, chopped
In a small bowl mix first 7 ingredients. They key to this part is tasting it to see what you may need a little bit more of... start with the 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and brown sugar and add more to your taste. I know brown sugar sounds strange but I think it is the dressing's not-so-secret ingredient for goodness.
In medium to large bowl combine other 4 ingredients. Pour dressing over top and mix well. Chill for several hours or overnight and serve as desired. We like ours on rolls or in a wrap.
I have made this several times now but every time we eat it before I remember to take a picture haha so I am so glad I get to share it now. I think this chicken salad is delicious but can easily be adapted to have chicken salad YOUR way too. I have made this before with grapes in place of the apples or craisens and it was very yummy then too.
What is in the chicken salad done your way??
