Servings: 2 main or 5 appetizer portions
- 4 ounces pre-cooked chicken breast, chopped
- 1/4 cup Champagne grapes (or red or green grapes)
- 1/4 cup pecans, chopped (or your favorite nuts or seeds)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped purple cabbage
- 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
- 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 zucchini
- 1/2 yellow summer squash
Make the chicken salad by combining the chopped chicken, grapes, pecans, yogurt, mayonnaise, and rosemary in a medium mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Slice zucchini and summer squash in to ~1/4 inch rounds-you will have ~20 rounds or “chips”. Place squash chips on a serving dish and top with chicken salad. Serve immediately, or store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
No zucchini chips? This low-carb chicken salad tastes delicious on its own, or enjoy it wrapped in lettuce leaves for another low-carb option.
