Light Chicken Salad and an Update!

My life has been crazy the last month. I’ve tons of tests and papers due, I got a job (!), and my dad is retiring so we have been all over the place. But, I am going to be better (for real this time).

As a peace offering, I have this DELICIOUS chicken salad recipe for you. It is my favorite! Every time I want chicken salad, I whip this up!

Next, make the dressing with the container of greek yogurt, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tbsp of garlic powder, 1 tbsp onion powder, and salt and pepper. Mix well!

I serve mine on romaine lettuce wraps. It’s super fresh! It makes 4-1 cup servings. Each serving is 6 WW points+.

And now for a progress pic… The one on the left is from around this time in 2012. The one on the right was taken about a week ago. You may not be able to tell, but there is about a 20 pound difference between the photos!
