You can always count on a large container of vanilla greek yogurt in my fridge, but after tasting my latest container over and over again, I realized that this was definitely an off batch of vanilla.
It is definitely plain yogurt. Now I’m trying to figure out what to do with all of this plain yogurt! I have to spice it up or sweeten it up or just do something to it! So as we sit here with a fresh rotisserie chicken, I figured chicken salad is the way to go.
Mango Chipotle Chicken Salad
Makes 3, 1/2 cup servings
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup mango, diced
1 chipotle pepper in adobo
10-12 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tbsp white onion, diced
2 tbsp bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup english cucumber, diced1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp roasted, salted sunflower seeds
3/4 cup chicken breast, shredded
Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl, except chicken. Taste and adjust any seasonings to your liking. Fold in your shredded chicken. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let all of the flavors come together.
I wrapped my chicken salad up in a whole wheat, low carb tortilla with some romaine leaves and 1 100 calorie packet of Wholly Guacamole. This would also be great over mixed greens or as a sandwich instead of a wrap.
You could even do it as a fun appetizer! Get some baked Tostitos scoops and spoon 1 tbsp of chicken salad into each scoop. Sprinkle some chopped green onion and a dusting of chili powder on top and pass around!
