Chicken Salad:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced (10 oz)*
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese



  • In a medium bowl, mix the chicken breast cubes, red onion, cilantro and feta.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, minced garlic, kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Pour the dressing on the chicken salad and mix well to combine. Serve immediately, or chill for an hour to allow flavors to meld.



*If you need to cook the chicken, use two (8 oz) raw chicken breasts. Spray them with oil, lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake in a 450°F oven until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
