So remember that amazingly good chicken salad from Rachel’s baby shower that I promised you?? We’ll the wait is over. Get excited!
Chicken salad is one of our go-tos during the week because I can make a big batch of it on the weekend which makes for easy lunch prep. I’m going to let you in on my two secrets for the best chicken salad…. are you ready?
and Lemon Yogurt. But not just any lemon yogurt works either, trust me.. I’ve tried them all. You’ve got to have the creamiest yogurt and lemonyest yogurt for this chicken salad.
This Liberte Classique Lemon Yogurt made with 2.9% milk fat is the stuff. I die.
Okay, the moment you’ve been waiting for… here’s the recipe.
PS–> Little Pearl is having surgery tomorrow… so we are making sure to love her a whole bunch more today. I know it’s going to be so hard for me to drop her off at the vet. 🙁Print
