Power Chicken Salad



Hey guys, I'm so sorry for not posting anything on this past Friday/Monday, I left my camera at home (on accident) while I was out of town this weekend. I meant to share this recipe on Friday or over the weekend as a awesome lunch that can be prepped in bulk ahead of time. 

You will need:
2 lbs chicken without antibiotics
1 bunch organic celery 
2-3 lemons
1 cup sliced almonds
2 cups seedless red grapes
32 oz plain 0% fat greek yogurt
fresh dill, salt, and pepper to taste

I cooked the chicken on the stove with a little orange juice, salt, and pepper. Once it's cooked, set aside and let cool for a while. In the mean time, you can wash and prep the celery and grapes. I cut up an entire bunch of celery for about 3-4 cups finely diced, along with about 2 cups of red grapes that I sliced in half. Once the chicken is thoroughly cooled, cut into cubes or shred it into bite-sized pieces.

Combine chicken, celery, grapes, and almonds in a large mixing bowl. Add the greek yogurt, and mix. Start adding in the lemon juice, dill, salt, and pepper until it's seasoned to your liking.

I also added hot sauce to mine and it was awesome!

This makes about 4 large servings that I took for lunch last week. Here is approximate nutrition for one fourth of the recipe.
