Homemade Chicken Salad (Courtesy Of Skinny Mom)

From Skinny Mom

Pro tips:

  • Cook a large batch of our Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken each Sunday to cut down on cook and meal prep time. This weekly habit saves so much time in the kitchen and ensures you have a substantial base for a variety of delicious and skinny meals.
  • For lunch or dinner, eat this as an open-faced sandwich on a piece of whole-wheat toast with a side of fresh cut fruit.
  • For a light snack, eat this on reduced-fat Wheat Thins, or eat it in a lettuce wrap.
  • Make it ahead of time and keep in the fridge for up to five days (including the day you made it) and have lunch packed for a few days of the week!


Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Yield: 7 servings

Serving size: 1 cup


  • 1½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups Pacific® Organic Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half lengthwise (20 grapes)
  • ½ cup unsalted, raw pecans, coarsely chopped (34 pecans)
  • 1 cup celery, diced (about 3 stalks)
  • ½ cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  1. In a medium stockpot, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the bay leaf and chicken, then bring back up to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 15 minutes, flipping over at the halfway mark. The internal temperature should read 165º F.
  3. Discard the bay leaves and reserve the chicken on a plate until cool enough to touch, then shred and set aside.
  4. While the chicken is cooling, prepare the dressing in a large mixing bowl by whisking together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, honey, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add the grapes, pecans, celery, and cooled chicken to the bowl, and gently toss all of the ingredients together.
  6. Chill before serving.
