Chicken Waldorf Salad

So, the other day Mike and I went out to lunch and split a side of chicken waldorf salad at a local deli.  Now, I love waldorf salad, but this was unlike anything I had ever tasted.  It was so good.  So, I started taking smaller and smaller bites trying to figure out what ingredients were used so I could replicate the recipe.  Below is what I came up with

Ingredients:

  • 2 honeycrisp apples
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • cinnamon
  • seedless grapes
  • craisins
  • 10 oz. vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • chopped walnuts

Instructions:

  1. Cook and shred the chicken breasts.  I cook mine in the crockpot because it keeps the chicken juicy and it makes it easier to shred.
  2. Slice the apples and grapes, put them in a bowl with the craisins and sprinkle with cinnamon.  I used a lot of cinnamon, but its all about preference.  Start with a small amount.  You can always add more.
  3. Mix the seasoned fruit, shredded chicken, yogurt and a few handfuls of walnut.  Serve chilled when ready.

Mike said my version is better than the one we split at the deli.  He may be a little bias and I am not sure I agree.  However, I can’t deny that my version is pretty scrumptious.  I entered this recipe into MyFitnessPal.  It makes about 6 servings and has about 320 calories per serving.  You can make it as a side or put it on bread and make a sandwich
