Using up leftover chicken is a happy hobby of mine. Sometimes it's fried *yum* This simple but tasty chicken salad incorporates the deliciousness of the fried chicken's light breading plus a tangy bite from Greek yogurt sour cream. Simple and highly customizable. —jampot
5 oz. leftover boneless/skinless pan fried chicken breasts
plus 1Tbsp Greek Yogurt Sour Cream
medium sized apple, diced
medium celery stalks, diced
green onions, green and white parts, minced
course kosher salt and pepper to taste
In This Recipe
In a bowl, combine the Greek yogurt sour cream and lemon juice. If you like a creamier chicken salad, add a bit more of the yogurt sour cream. Whisk a few times to mix well.
Dice the leftover cold fried chicken breasts. If your breading/batter was seasoned, go lightly with the salt and pepper later on.
Add the chicken to the yogurt sour cream mixture as well as the apple, grapes, celery, green onions and walnuts. Toss gently and season with salt and pepper to taste.
I serve this over mixed greens or on two pieces of homemade bread for a yummy sandwich. Try a splash of lemon juice to top if you like the tang - I do!
