Chicken Salad

There are a million ways to make chicken salad. For me, the key ingredient in chicken salad is red grapes, which is why I add twice as many as other people. All you really need for fantastic chicken salad after that is toasted almonds, fresh herbs, and a lemon-yogurt dressing.

I should add a disclaimer: I vastly prefer this with leftover grilled chicken but on a rainy week like this, I grind salt and pepper all over chicken breasts, drizzle with olive oil and cook at 350 for about 45 minutes.

Most people do a mixture of mayonnaise and yogurt but I’m an all-yogurt kind of gal. It’s so healthy and clean tasting that it let’s the other ingredients shine through. I always have a tub of Greek Gods Traditional Plain yogurt in my fridge for cooking and almost always sub out mayonnaise and even sour cream for yogurt.

    I have to make this. My daughter is always asking me to make chicken salad sandwich. I always make the same old boring Sicilian dishes…but after all, we live in Sicily 🙂

    1. Let me know what you think! I would love to hear about some of your favorite Sicilian dishes. I think they would be anything but boring to me! <3
