I’m a big fan of chicken salad. My favorite has always been made with mayo, grapes, pecans and a squeeze of lemon served on a croissant. But…since we’ve been doing a Clean Eating challenge with my Beachbody team, I needed to get rid of the mayo and the croissant if I wanted chicken salad. I’ve been using Greek yogurt as a substitute for all my oils, sour creams and mayonnaise for the past couple of weeks so decided to swap it out in my chicken salad – SO good!!
Greek yogurt is a little tangy, but the sweetness of the grapes and apples off set that a little. This is just absolutely delicious. My husband doesn’t even like chicken salad and he loved this. Such a great lunch – make on Sunday and have an tasty, healthy, clean eating lunch for the next couple of days!

Pan steam the chicken by filling a deep skillet with about an inch of water, add chicken and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes or until done throughout. Shred, place in a medium bowl.
