I am an avid fan of chicken salad… particularly when it is prepared with fruit and fresh herbs, giving it the perfect sweet and savory flavor combination.
This “Harvest Chicken Salad”, is my go-to recipe when I want to whip up a small batch to have on hand, for lunch for the weekend.
It’s easy to throw together, and is great served on croissants, fresh bread, or even atop lettuce for a great salad.
Harvest Chicken Salad
1 (store bought) rotisserie chicken, breast meat removed and shredded
2 Tbs mayonnaise
3/4 of a cup, of plain Greek yogurt (give or take, depending on how creamy you prefer it)
the juice of half a lemon
1/2 cup of apple, chopped (I prefer honeycrisp or granny smith)
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/8 chopped pecans
1 Tbs chopped fresh chives
S & P to taste
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Chill until ready to serve.
Now we have lunch on hand for the weekend!
