  3. Stir until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, shredding the chicken as needed. Gradually add more yogurt until the desired consistency, aiming for approximately 1 cup.

Ingredients:

12.5 oz can of 98% fat free chicken breast (must be breast! And at least 98% FF or it has points!)

2 tbsp of olive oil mayo or reduced fat mayo

1 cup of fat free, plain, Greek yogurt (approximately, see directions)

Juice of half a lemon

15-20 grapes cut in half

1 rib of celery diced

1 tsp salt

1 clove of fresh minced garlic or 1 tsp of garlic powder

½ tsp of celery seed

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp of ground pepper

Directions:

In a medium bowl with a lid, put chicken breast, mayo, grapes, celery and all spices. Add about half of the yogurt (or a big spoonful)  and the juice from the lemon. I suggest squeezing the lemon juice directly into the bowl using a small strainer to catch seeds. Stir until all ingredients incorporated, shredding the chunk chicken and adding more yogurt until it reaches desired consistency, approximately 1 cup.

The recipe makes two servings of a little more than 1 cup each, each serving is 2 points on Weight W\W Freestyle program. Or the whole recipe is 3 points. If you use regular mayo instead of the suggested olive oil/reduced fat, each serving is 3 points.

So what are you gonna eat it with? Here are some ideas!

  • Pretzel slims (3pts/oz)
  • In a low point wrap (I like Aldi fit & active wraps for 2pts)
  • On low point bread (1-2pts/slice depending on the bread)
  • On top of a salad
  • With baby carrots (0 pts)
  • With celery sticks (0 pts)
  • On top of sliced cucumbers (0 pts)
