Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Last week, my friends and I decided to make the change to a healthier life style. We all chose different approaches to our diets and work out regiments, but we all agreed to help each other along. Today, some of us met up to try some new healthy recipes. This one was a big hit. I am excited to make this in the future!

  • 1 cup of cooked Chicken
  • 1/4 cup plain low fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 small Apple, diced (your favorite type)
  • 1 stalk of Celery, diced
  • 2 tbs Chopped Pecans
  • Dried Cranberries to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Mix ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Serve immediately or chilled. If you plan on chilling, I suggest adding 2/3 of the Greek yogurt when making, and the other 1/3 right before you serve it. Can be eaten as is, or in a wrap or pita, with pita chips or crackers or over a bed of lettuce.

This recipe can be made quickly, in a large batch. If you are pressed for time, canned chicken will work as well. And if you get sick of the recipe, you can swap chicken out for turkey breast, or change the type of apple you use. My friends loved this salad so much, there was nothing left to take home with me! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
