Use what you have (Leftover) Chicken Salad

I enjoy a good chicken salad a small scoop with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers or fresh fruit on the side really hits the spot! and in an effort to both eat healthy and stretch the grocery dollars I came up with a yummy chicken salad doing just that. On Monday I made the (Skinny) Greek Yogurt Chicken recipe that I kept seeing all over was delicious! I thought to myself oh I will just slice  up the leftovers over a green salad for lunch....then it hit me! CHICKEN SALAD....mmmm yum! Here is what I did:


2 chicken breasts (leftover chicken) cut or shredded
celery ( I used one stalk) diced
1-apple (with the skin) diced
2 tbsp golden raisins (or 1/4 cup sliced grapes)
2 tbsp walnuts/pecans (chopped)

for the dressing:

1/2 c. Greek yogurt (plain)
a drizzle of honey
fresh squeezed lemon juice (from half a lemon)
1/8 tsp dill
kosher salt and pepper

Combine above ingredients ( I use a glass measuring cup) and simply pour it over the chicken, mix well and serve immediately or chill for even better flavor!
