Healthier Chicken Salad

I must be craving chicken this week because I haven’t had it in a while, and now I’m making it two nights in a row! This is a great way to enjoy chicken in a bold, flavorful way. It tastes like a full-fat version of chicken salad, but part of the mayo is substituted with yogurt. You certainly won’t miss it though!

I think my favorite part of this is the mustard tang. If you like mustard, add more! If you want this to be thicker, add an additional spoonful of mayo and yogurt. Thinner? Add more lemon juice. However you like your chicken salad, you’ll definitely like this one!
