Not Grandma’s Chicken Salad

not-grandmas

Let’s cut to the chase. This is not your grandma’s chicken salad because this recipe is beyond different than any chicken salad grandma has fed you. Now it is different because grandma’s like to feed us and send us home stuffed, this recipe is healthy and will not stretch your stomach too far. I hear you already yelling “Why are you posting a healthy recipe instead of amazing pasta recipes right now?” I know I am ashamed and surprised as well. But I have 9 months to whoop my butt in shape and I started here. (Don’t get me wrong I’ll be eating pasta and sharing the recipes… that just means longer in the gym right? Is that how it works?) Anyways…

What you will need!

  • Whole grain Pita Bread pockets
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1 avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 of a cucumber (cut up into small pieces)
  • Sliced almonds

Let’s get started!

Take the chicken breast and cook on medium high heat.

One the chicken breast is cooked through, put aside for it to cool.

Cut the avocado in half, scoop out the pit.

In a small bowl, mix together the avocado and greek yogurt. Add the cucumbers and slice almonds and continue to mix.

With the chicken breast, take two forks and start to pull apart the chicken so it is shredded. Once the whole chicken is in shredded pieces add it into the bowl.

Mix together the avocado mixture and chicken.

Open a pita bread pocket and start to scoop the mixture inside. Enjoy!

 

Substitutions

You can use any veggie instead of cucumbers and any nut instead of almonds. Anything will work!
