Chicken Salad | Easy & Healthy Chicken Salad

I have always eyed the rotisserie chicken that they sell in walmart or sams. It looks so juicy and whenever I see one I always dream of making potpies, salads and sandwiches. Whenever I think of buying one or whenever I ask the huss to buy one, he always says 'get it if you think that you can finish it'. And then I back off. That word means that the chicken is meant for me and only me. Finally I mustered all my courage and bought a rotisserie chicken last week. We had it on sandwiches and then I made pot pie one day and finally I finished it by making a big batch of this salad which I had for lunch with a side salad and then with some soup for dinner.



~*What U Need~*
Cooked Chicken - 1 cup
Celery - 1/4 cup, chopped
Green onions - 2, chopped
Grapes - 1/2 cup, chopped
Almonds - 1/4, slivered

For the dressing:
Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Mayonnaise - 1 tbsp
Sour cream - 1 tbsp
Coriander - 1 tbsp, chopped
Brown sugar - 1 tsp
Vinegar - few drops
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste
Red chilli powder - a pinch(optional)

How I Made it:
In a mixing bowl, mix mayonnaise, yogurt and sour cream, vinegar, brown sugar, red chilli powder and salt and pepper to taste. Add chopped coriander and mix well. Do taste test and season as needed. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill well.


Serve on a bed of lettuce or side of salad or in a sandwich.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
