Do you have a go-to dinner for those nights when you have had a crazy, busy day but need to put a hearty, healthy meal on the table? Mine is my easy chicken salad recipe. It's a family favorite and always a family pleaser in a short period of time.
Some nights I up the game a bit with my homemade carrot turmeric dinner rolls to put the chicken salad on. Those are special nights, though, to be truthful. My family seems to be more than happy with croissant rolls or bread.
Making your own rolls doesn't take much time and is easy to do. And there is something so fantastic about the smell of rising dough that just can't be beat. If you have never tried working with yeast dough...do so. It will change your life.
Easy Chicken salad recipes are a dime a dozen.
Everyone has a favorite recipe of their own and most likely...so do you. But have you tried subbing out yogurt in your version for the traditional mayo or Miracle Whip? It's a healthier variation that doesn't take away from the flavor, at all. In fact, add a bit of curry powder to your yogurt version and guaranteed this version will become a favorite!
- 2 cups chopped chicken
- 1 12 oz container plain greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- ½ tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup grapes sliced in half (I sub out diced apples sometimes)
- ½ cup slivered almonds or chopped walnuts
- 1 stalk celery chopped
- Mix ingredients together.
- For best results, chill for at least an hour.
