Make your health and fitness goals a priority with the help of this tasty, quick and easy chicken salad recipe. It is high in protein, low in calories and has loads of flavor thanks to the green herbs. It stays light thanks to the nonfat Greek yogurt, but still has enough mayonnaise to give you the rich tangy flavor of their full fat counterparts. Don’t have canned chicken. Try canned tuna or salmon instead!

- 1/2- 1 tsp dried herbs if no fresh are available
- Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. This makes enough for two. So you can either share or save it for the next day. Leftovers store up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Perfect with bread, in a wrap, on crackers or use it to top a bed of greens.
