Healthy Greek Yogurt Curried Chicken Salad

So, it's totally not spring yet here in Boise (there's snow outside...for real). But all the spring style and decor inspiration I've been seeing on Pinterest has me craving lighter foods already.

And since it's no secret that I freaking love Indian food, I decided to add my favorite flavor to a healthy chicken salad: Curry. I've already tried yogurt marinated curry chicken and curry-crusted top sirloin. A lighter, summer-y dish was next on my list.

This Curried Chicken Salad is made with Greek yogurt instead of mayo, making it extra light while still packing a powerful amount of flavor.

Healthy Greek Yogurt Curried Chicken Salad 

Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1.5 cups of shredded chicken (you can shred pre-cooked chicken breasts, a Costco rotisserie chicken or buy just plain old canned chicken breast)
  • 2 stalks of celery, minced
  • 1 Tbsp red onion, minced 
  • 2 Tbsp golden raisons
  • 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Toss your shredded chicken, celery, red onion and raisons until they're mixed. A note about the chicken: I would love to say I actually cook my own chicken breasts lovingly, but I don't because I'm lazy when I'm hungry. I usually just drain and dump a can of Costco chicken into my mix.

2. In a different bowl, mix your yogurt, lemon juice, curry, salt and pepper. Add your chicken mixture and mix everything together until all your chicken is creamy.

Super easy, and the perfect blend of hearty and light at the same time. I like to serve mine over mixed salad greens, but I've also loaded ciabatta buns and packed them up for picnics.
