Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Rotisserie chicken, apples, celery, and pecans are tossed in a creamy yogurt dressing 
to make this light and delicious Apple Pecan Chicken Salad!
One thing you can always find in my refrigerator is a rotisserie chicken. They are so versatile and can be used in so many different dishes, from wraps to quesadillas to topping a pizza. Chicken salad is a favorite around here but I never seem to make it that often. I decided to jazz up my typical chicken salad recipe with some apples, pecans, and a light and delicious yogurt dressing. I can honestly say that I am obsessed with this salad and have made it several times already since creating this recipe. It's perfect for lunch, a light dinner, and even as a snack!
I kept this delicious chicken salad on the healthier side by making a super simple yogurt dressing using plain Greek yogurt, a dash of mayo, and lemon juice. The apples, celery and pecans give it the perfect crunch and add so much flavor.
This salad is perfect on a bed of lettuce, on a sandwich, or even just eaten by the spoonful straight from the bowl. It's that good!
