Refreshing Chicken Salad with Apples – This fall inspired recipe is loaded with crisp sweet apples, crunchy pecans, green onions, lightly tart cranberries and plenty of tender chicken. And it’s all coated in a Greek yogurt based rich and creamy rosemary dressing.
Autumn Apple Pecan Chicken Salad
A crisp, apple studded, protein rich chicken salad that’s perfect for a hearty autumn lunch or even a simple weeknight dinner that won’t weigh you down.
It’s made healthier with a combination of Greek yogurt and a little mayo, and it pairs beautifully with a hearty whole grain bread. Or you can serve it lower carb over lettuce leaves for another nutritious option.
This version is made with rotisserie chicken but you can use leftover cooked chicken breasts as well. I just recommend that you avoid canned chicken for a better chicken salad.
It’s simple to make and worthy of your recipe collection!
Try serving it with baked sweet potato fries or sweet potato chips for a colorful fall pairing.
