No Mayo Chive Chicken Salad

About This Recipe:

I had a random craving for a chicken salad sandwich this week, so I decided to make my own version that would be healthier and tastier than the ones at your local deli. I have never purchased mayonnaise and don’t really ever intend to, so I knew I’d be subbing with plain Greek yogurt instead. And I absolutely love chives, but don’t make dishes with it often so I wanted to incorporate some here (but dill would also be delicious.) Try this elevated chicken salad recipe for your next picnic!
