Loaded Chicken Salad

I'm a huge fan of chicken salad.

I like hot chicken salad and cold chicken salad.  It's all delicious to me.

A friend recently posted a recipe for greek yogurt chicken salad and I was intrigued.

I haven't tried many new recipes lately.  Life's been busy so we've been sticking to our favorite foods.  But, with the warmer weather finally arriving in Indiana I am feeling motivated to try some new recipes.

I made up this recipe on Sunday and it was SO YUMMY!  It was light, filling and I am excited to eat it for lunch all week.

Loaded Chicken Salad

2 chicken breasts cooked & shredded (I did mine in the crock pot)
1 5.3 oz plain greek yogurt
2 celery stalks finely chopped
1 c green grapes cut in fourths
1 c red grapes cut in fourths
1/2 c strawberries cut small
1/4 c chopped pecans
1 t cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Shred the chicken.  Wash and chop all the colorful ingredients.  Stir everything together in a big bowl until well coated and chill.  Serve on a bed of baby spinach or with crackers.

Isn't it a pretty chicken salad??

How do you like your chicken salad?  Leave me all the details in the comments.


  1. I love chicken salad and make mine very similar but I never thought to add cumin!

  2. This looks SO good! I love chicken salad and there really are so many different variations of it. I can't wait to try this. It sounds like the perfect summer lunch! =)

  3. Sounds delicious! I am always a little hesitant to replace yogurt for mayo, but if you recommend it I will give it a try!

  4. I need to try this recipe! I LOVE chicken salad but try not to make it too often due to the mayo...but yogurt is a perfect solution. My favorite mix-ins are either cheddar cheese and bacon or walnuts, apples and craisins.

  5. I absolutely love chicken salad, and this recipe sounds delicious!

  6. Chicken salad is a dish that I like but that I never think to make. Publix chicken salad is the absolute bomb, so I normally buy that if I want it.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
