“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.”

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 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.
