At the moment I’m not supposed to eat lunch meat, so when it came time to have a packed lunch, I knew just the thing – chicken salad. Leftover roast chicken is perfect for this salad. I love to add in the celery, grapes and apple then season the yogurt with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. It gives the salad a wonderful aroma and an even better flavor. Since plain yogurt can be a bit bitter and strong, I added a little bit of mayonnaise to tone down the flavor a little. It worked perfectly to give the salad a more rounded flavor. Using lettuce leaves for this recipe means that I don’t have to worry about too many points for my lunch with a wrap. However, if you feel like you’d prefer a wrap, use a whole grain, high protein and high fiber wrap to give you wrap without so many points. For me, this chicken salad is perfect. It’s savory and delicious, plus it uses leftovers. It also made enough that I was able to have it for a couple of lunches and a snack as well. I’m looking forward to using up some more leftover chicken with this one for this coming week’s lunches.
