"This is a light and easy to make chicken salad. For a less tangy dressing, use light mayonnaise instead of the sour cream. Also, green onions can be substituted for the chives, if necessary."

cubed, cooked chicken meat
1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh chives
plain low-fat yogurt
reduced fat sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons
blanched slivered almonds
salt and pepper to taste
Delicious! This was a great way to use up some left over chicken I had. I cut the celery back to one cup and since I didn't have low-fat plain yogurt on hand I subbed low fat mayo. I added some fresh lemon juice and a bit of dijon mustard along with some parsley. (similar to Tarragon Tuna Salad from this site). I left out the almonds and let this set in the fridge for a couple hours to let the flavors blend. Great on toasted whole grain bread!
This dish had too much celery, was a little dry and lacked a little taste. Next time, we'll make some adjustments with some of the ingredients to jazz it up.
This chicken salad is a great base for someone who has an afliction to mayo. I added everything in this recipe, but instead of almonds, i added pecans cuz thats what i had. I also added a tspn of mayo to my yogurt and sour creAM for a light tangy flavor w/o actually overpowering it with mayo. I also added freshly ground black pepper and dash or two of onion powder, and i used fresh tarragon and dried chives cuz thats all i had onhand. As a person who loves chicken salad but alot of times it either tastes too chickeny or too mayoey, this one is perfect and delicious! Screw the deli, i will make this from now on! I also didnt measure any of my ingredianets except for the yogurt/mayo/sourcream mix.
This is tasty. I couldn't find plain yogurt so just used fat free mayo. Also, since fresh chives are out of season used dried. Was really tasty and will make again. My husband ate for lunch on lettuce.
Delicious and easy! I loved the unique flavor of the tarragon. I didn't have plain yougart, so just added lite sour cream till moist.
Great salad. I tried it with fresh tarragon and used the juice of half a lemon to give it a little zing.
ANOTHER GREAT RECIPE!!! Staff members loved it!!
This was really very good. I enjoyed the tarragon and chives a lot - nice spin to an old classic. I also sometimes finely chop a red pepper and throw that in, too. Delicious. I've tried it with tuna as well, and while it works, it's definitely better with the chicken.
