  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lettuce leaves for serving
  • Optional: chopped nuts (such as walnuts or almonds) for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Chicken: If you haven’t already, cook the chicken breasts until they’re fully cooked through. Allow them to cool, then dice them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Prepare the Fruits and Vegetables: Wash the grapes, apple, and celery. Halve the grapes, dice the apple, and chop the celery into small pieces. Finely chop the red onion.
  3. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced chicken, grapes, apple, celery, and red onion.
  4. Make the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, plain yogurt, and lemon juice until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Combine Salad and Dressing: Pour the dressing over the chicken and fruit mixture. Gently toss until everything is evenly coated with the dressing.
  6. Chill: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the salad to an airtight container. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Serve: When ready to serve, line a serving dish with lettuce leaves. Spoon the chilled chicken salad onto the lettuce leaves. If desired, sprinkle with chopped nuts for added texture and flavor.
  8. Enjoy: Serve the chicken salad as a refreshing lunch or light dinner. It’s also great as a sandwich filling or atop a bed of mixed greens for a heartier meal. Enjoy!
