Normally – I’m not a fan of the extras in chicken salad – but I needed to add some flavor and good things to make up for the fact that I’m not using a cup of mayo!
What’s in Weight Watchers Chicken Salad
- boneless skinless chicken breast – I found precooked chicken at Costco in a 2 lb package and then separated into 1/2 pound packages and froze them – it’s great to just grab one out of the freezer and go!
- red seedless grapes
- small gala (sweet) apple – for pete’s sake – no Red Delicious! #notdelicious
- red onion
- lemon juice
- reduced calorie mayonnaise – I couldn’t find Duke’s around here so I got Hellman’s – you could also sub with low or non-fat greek yogurt
- coarse sea salt
- boston lettuce or any lettuce you can cup
How do you make chicken salad
It’s not hard to make chicken salad – dice up all your ingredients and throw it together! I like making it the night before so the flavors have time to meld together.
How long will this last in the fridge
If you keep it in an air tight container, chicken salad will last a week in the refrigerator. I just finished mine off for breakfast this morning!
