SKINNY chicken salad sandwiches!

Today in Culinary Corner, we took  regular chicken salad and made it “skinny” by substituting greek yogurt for mayonnaise!  This simple substitution decreases the amount of fat in the salad and it adds a bonus source of protein!  We also added in some extra fruits for more nutritional benefits.  This recipe is great for college students and other people who don’t have a whole lot of extra time to cook healthy meals or even people with limited cooking resources.

Skinny Chicken Salad
1 pound canned chicken
½ cup diced red onion
½ cup diced apple
2/3 cup grapes (halved)
1/3 cup dried cranberries,
¼ cup sliced almonds
½ cup vanilla greek yogurt
1.5 T lemon juice
½ tsp. of garlic powder, salt and pepper
4-6 buns.
Combine all ingredients in a medium/large mixing bowl, mix well and scoop desired amount on desired type of bun.
