As the weather gets warmer and I spend more and more time outside, I sometimes get a little lazy in the kitchen.
I love quick salads for lunch and dinner, but sometimes I want something healthy that is also a little heartier than a big bowl of greens.
Enter this chicken salad. It is full of crunchy green veggies, shallots, white and dark green chicken, and fresh lemony flavor.
For a light dinner, serve this atop a bed of greens with toast…springtime perfection!
1 rotisserie chicken, chilled, meat separated from skin and diced or shredded
1.5 cups frozen peas
2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced
1 shallot, minced
1/2 cup chopped parsley
4 scallions, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed, 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
zest from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, and lemon zest.
2. Place the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour the yogurt sauce over the top and stir until coated.
