Refreshing and Healthy Chicken Salad

The combination of light mayo and fat-free Greek yogurt make this a healthy lunch option that you can make in advance. (I make mine on Sundays) 1 cup of chicken salad equals around 400 calories. The protein from the chicken and yogurt will help keep you from snacking in the afternoon.

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 5

  • 2 large boneless + Skinless Chicken Breast
