Chive Chicken Salad (No Mayo)

About This Recipe:

I had a random craving for a chicken salad sandwich this week, so I decided to make my own version that is much healthier and tastier than the ones at your local deli. This is a very simple and easy chicken salad recipe, I am just swapping out mayo for a tangy Greek yogurt “dressing.” I absolutely love chives, but if you are not a fan, this would also be amazing with dill, thyme, or parsley. Try this elevated chicken salad recipe for your next sandwich craving!
