This recipe is a perfect way to use leftover chicken. With just 15 minutes of prep time, this recipe will be ready in a snap. No leftovers? Use the quick tip below for poaching boneless, skinless chicken breasts. You can also use store-bought rotisserie chicken. If you do, keep in mind that it’s already salty and omit the salt in the dressing.
 

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 medium red apple, diced
  • 1 cup halved red or green grapes
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided (toasted if desired)

Directions

1. Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice and salt in a large bowl.
 
2. Add chicken, apple, grapes, celery and half of the walnuts. Stir to coat well.
 
3. Serve topped with the remaining walnuts. 
 
 

Notes

Quick Tip: If you want cooked chicken in a hurry, the easiest way to cook it is to poach it (one pound of raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts yields about 2½ cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken).
  • Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a skillet or saucepan.
  • Add lightly salted water (or chicken broth) to cover and bring to a boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle (approx 10-15 minutes).
