I LOVE this recipe. It is great for easy meal prep and a protein packed lunch. Adding Greek yogurt to your chicken salad adds in probiotics and protein. It also helps to keep the chicken salad thick and tangy. This is a great option for those trying to increase protein in their lunches. It is also full of healthy fats and added nutrition from the nutritional yeast. I also sneak some veggies in with green bell peppers.

I love to put this on top of salad, with some whole grain bread for a sandwich or serve with high fiber crackers! (I also love with some hot sauce).
WHAT YOU NEED: plain Greek yogurt, canned chicken, Dijon mustard, pickles & pickle juice, pumpkin seeds (or seeds of choice), green bell peppers, nutritional yeast, pepper, onion powder, sea salt.
HOW TO MAKE: literally just mix in a bowl and enjoy! Make sure to drain your canned chicken.
