Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad is packed with protein, crunchy almonds and celery, and sweet dried cranberries for the perfect crunchy, creamy, lunch or dinner.Make-ahead meals are my just about my favorite thing right now.
Things have been pretty busy around our house lately, and I love being about to make something like this Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad when I have a few minutes.
And, really, a few minutes is all that this chicken salad takes to make.The easiest way that I’ve found to cook the chicken is simply to boil it. Sometimes I’ll cook it, and then toss it back into the fridge to chill so that it’s easier to chop up. I’m sure you could also use rotisserie chicken if you wanted to make it even easier on yourself.
Then, just let it sit for at least a few hours in the fridge to give the flavors some time to really develop.

Does anyone have the nutritional values for this salad? It looks delicious.
I’ve never liked chicken salad because I can’t stand mayonaise. Does making it with the yogurt change the flavor so that it doesn’t taste like mayo? I might actually eat this if if doesn’t taste like mayonaise!
No, it doesn’t taste like mayo =). I hope you enjoy it if you try it!
