Chicken Salad

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, about 2 breasts boiled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt, I used 0% Fage
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup celery, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup shallots, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons toasted almonds, sliced or crushed works fine, optional

Equipment

  • sauce pot
  • mixing bowl

Instructions 

  • Boil a pot of water and add the chicken breasts. Cook the chicken for 15 minutes or until it's fully cooked through. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees.
  • While the boiled chicken breasts are cooling, grab a large mixing bowl.
  • Add Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper into the mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
  • Gently fold in the sliced celery and diced shallots.
  • Once the chicken is cool, cube the chicken into bite sized pieces. Add it to the bowl with everything else. Toss until all of the chicken is well coated.
  • Top with crushed or sliced almonds.
  • Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes in an airtight container before serving.
