Psst…come closer, I have a secret to tell you. This creamy Maple Dijon Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient in it. Want to guess what it is?
If you guess Greek yogurt you’re right!
No, you don’t win a million dollars or a cute little gadget for guessing the right answer but you do get a crazy delicious recipe for a tasty little salad that is perfect on bread or top on a bed of lettuce.
If you like chicken salad, like my Curry Chicken Salad you will love the spin on this which includes apples, cranberries and walnuts tossed in a maple and dijon yogurt dressing.
If you are hesitant about using yogurt in place of mayonnaise, trust me it works. The Greek yogurt gives a little tang that is a perfect compliment to this salad and still has a creamy consistency.
The best part you slash the fat found in mayonnaise for a healthier alternative so you can save the calories for a cookie.

Maple-Dijon Chicken Salad
Use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. If cooking chicken simply add chicken breasts on a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in a preheated 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 35-40 minutes until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Cool completely and cut into pieces
