Delicious & Heathy Chicken Salad

I altered this recipe a bit from Whole Living's website. I left out a few things and added a few things and it turned out delicious!!! Here's what I did…

  • Ingredients 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive-oil cooking spray
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (organic preferably… always taste better)
  • 3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup finely diced fennel
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes, cut in half
  • Whole wheat pita bread


  1. Combine salt and pepper in a small bowl. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with some of the salt mixture; place in saute pan. Reduce heat to medium; cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes (flip halfway through cooking time). Remove from pan; Place cooked chicken into a stainless steel bowl of a stand mixer (such as a KitchenAid), with beater attachment on, place on med-high level to shred chicken.

  2.  In a bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, chives, basil, and remaining salt mixture. Core the apple, and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Place in a medium bowl with lemon juice, and toss to combine. Add fennel and grapes.
  3. Finally add to fruit mixture to the yogurt dressing and stir in chicken. Continue to combine until everything is mixed well. Serve inside a whole wheat pita.
