Chicken Salad is a delicious, as well as a versatile, recipe. It can be made into a fancy finger food, placed on top of a bed of lettuce with fresh fruits or veggies, or simply eaten with whole grain crackers. It can also be one of the healthiest recipes you make, if you make it right. Most chicken salad recipes are loaded down with fat simply because of the way the chicken is prepared and the mayonnaise that is used. Let this Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe be your guide to creating a quick and healthy dish to entertain your guests or a simple dish to take with you to work or school.
6 Tyson All-Natural Chicken Tenders
1 tsp Almond Oil (or Olive Oil)
Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning, to taste
Mustard, to taste
Plain Nonfat Yogurt, to taste (optional)
Granulated Garlic, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste
1/2 small onion
1/2 small bell pepper
You will want to use a small or medium size pan to cook your chicken in. Heat the teaspoon of Almond Oil over a high heat and roll it around in order to coat the entire pan. Reduce to a medium heat and cook your chicken.
Once you have cooked you chicken, place it in a food processor and add in the dry seasonings (add in a little at the time, until it is seasoned the way you like it), onion, and pepper. Pulse until the chicken, onion, and pepper are finely chopped (be sure you pulse it, otherwise you will get a chicken mush!).
Remove your chopped chicken mix from the food processor and place in a large bowl. Add in your mustard and, if desired, yogurt. Mix together, making sure to coat your entire chicken mix.
The chicken salad can be served immediately, but is best if it is left to sit for a few hours or overnight.
Once you get the hang of this recipe, you will be able to whip it up in no time. So, the next time you are asked to host a shower or you want a healthy lunch to pack for work or school, just make a batch of chicken salad and enjoy!
