Apple chicken salad is made with tart Granny Smith apples, chicken breast and a Greek yogurt base. A quick, healthy and delicious meal.

 

I love Fall, and this time of year in general. A plethora of apples are here in full swing. No matter what type of apple you are looking for, you’re likely going to find a large selection in most stores. I don’t think I can pinpoint my favorite type of apple, as I have many favorites, but I am partial to Granny Smith apples and their tartness.

This recipe for apple chicken salad is a great way to incorporate apples into a dish. Typically, apples are used in sweet dishes, which I love, but they are also great in savory dishes too. Granny Smith apples give this salad the perfect amount of crunch and tartness.

 

What should I serve with apple chicken salad?

A variety of sides would be delicious with chicken salad. Including, mixed green salad, seasonal fruit, crusty bread, croissants, pita bread or chips.

Making this salad won’t take much time and is simple to make. First, I start by cooking my chicken. Feel free to cook your chicken breast however you like. I often cook mine on the stovetop in boiling water, but I also bake it in the oven sometimes too. Other times I buy the chicken precooked from the store. Whatever method you choose to use will work. Once the chicken is cooled and chopped, set aside.

 

To make the dressing, I add the Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper to a bowl and mix it all together well. Once it’s mixed well, add in the cooked chicken, sliced celery and chopped apples and stir everything together well. To note, I peel my apple and core it before chopping it up.

For a low-carb meal, the chicken salad can be eaten as is. The salad can also be added to a croissant for a sandwich. Low-carb and low-calorie bread works well too.
