cranberryyogurtchickensalad2
cranberryyogurtchickensalad3
Not only is this lower in calories, than most salad recipes, this is beneficial! Using Greek Yogurt! AMAZING tasting Salad, that just happens to be Healthier!

About 1.5 lb To 1.75 lb Chicken Breasts (Boiled in CHICKEN BROTH)
2.5T Mayo
1 container Raspberry Greek Yogurt (W/fruit kind), stir well
3/4tsp Lemon Juice (Concentrate kind)
1tsp  To 1T Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind. I think I did 1tsp)
1/4tsp Sea Salt

1/4-1/3c Celery, minced (3rd long way then sliced)
1/4c Onion, minced

Wrap/Bread of choice: Lettuce Leaf, Bun, Bagel, Taco Shell, etc.

I boil chicken in water with few Chicken Broth Cubes, I don’t do exact ratio of water to cube, I just throw a few CRUSHED cubes in. Once cooked, I allow to set a few minutes in broth. Remove chicken and cut up. Toss with rest, EXCEPT, sunflower seeds. Top with desired amount of sunflower seeds.

Notes: I always premake about 20minutes prior to serving time. Place in fridge. If sits too long, chicken will absorb flavor! I believe I did 1tsp of Parm. Cheese… Not sure. Start with 1tsp… Taste test. Make this into a pasta with cooked bow tie noodles.
Upping Mayo, etc. Optional… To your taste! Choice to Miracle Whip up the bread, is optional… As well.

A lot of healthy recipes creamy up dishes with Greek Yogurt. It creamifies, it’s healthy, beneficial, low calories, etc. I thought, “Why not add flavored…?” So, I’m trying out a few. I thought these were alright. But, everyone else loved them. So, I’ll share.


Wrap of choice (Lettuce, Cabbage, Flat Bread/Pita Bread, Soft Shells, etc.)*

About 2lb. Fresh Thawed Chicken Breast
1 Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Ranch Season Pkt.*SEE NOTES
3/4tsp McCormick’s Greek Seasoning
1/4tsp Lemon Pepper
1/8tsp Sea Salt, or to taste
1/2T Fresh Chives, minced
1tsp Grated Parm. Cheese (Store shelf kind)

Shredded Moz. Cheese (Optional*)

Add chicken to Butter Flavored Cooking Sprayed crock. Top with Season Pkt., Greek Season, Lemon Pepper, Chives, Parm. Cheese, and Spinach. Cook on low 5-6 hours. Remove chicken, shred, and add back to crock. Mix in Yogurt (Or you can try mixing yogurt with cucumber and use as topping!). Cook on low another 20minutes.
