This chicken salad isn’t your traditional “chicken salad.” It is a cross between chicken salad and a salad with chicken, but it is definitely delicious and flavorful! It was the perfect post-run lunch for me yesterday afternoon, so I just had to share this little creation! It is super easy and very quick to make. I had some leftover chicken already shredded from my Friday night quick dinner (whole roasted chicken from Whole Foods), which made prep a lot faster. Shredded chicken is always great to have on hand for easy dinner or lunch prep, for topping salads, or for simple snacking.
I made this chicken salad for 1, but you could always double or triple the recipe. I also used OPA Greek Yogurt Feta and Dill dressing in replace of traditional chicken salad condiments (mayo and mustard). This dressing is absolutely delicious and creamy but is made with a Greek yogurt base. Super easy, super satisfying, and very flavorful! I hope you try this fabulous little afternoon pick-me-up!
