Chicken Salad Dijon with Grapes and Apple
Recipe from Biggest Loser Family Cookbook
Dijon mustard lovers will love this twist on traditional chicken salad—and will also be shocked by the creaminess of the dressing, given that it has about one-third of the calories and one-fourth of the fat usually found in a similar-size serving. Serve over a bed of butter lettuce or fresh spinach or on sprouted grain or multigrain bread.
Servings: Serves 4
  • 1 pound trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt , to taste
  • Ground black pepper , to taste
  • 3 Tbsp. fat-free plain yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/3 cup seedless grapes , each cut in half
  • 1/3 cup chopped red apple
  • Directions
    Preheat a grill to high heat.

    Rub the chicken all over with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Allow the chicken to cool, then cut it into bite-size cubes.

    In a large glass or plastic mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, the yogurt and mustard. Add the chicken, celery, grapes and apple. Gently toss well to combine. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
