Instead of raisins and dijon mustard try craisins and honey mustard instead. I have made it this way and it just disappears I also use mayo instead of yogurt but I will try it with yogurt the apples I also use are pink lady and granny smiths but no celery once in a while walnuts or almonds just a handful

You think you don't need a recipe for chicken salad? Well you are wrong. When you taste the flavor combination of this easy 5-Minute Chicken Salad you will become a believer. The crunch of the diced apples and celery, and the use of Greek yogurt instead of mayonaise, really take this chicken salad to the next level. Raisins, Dijon mustard and garlic powder help to round out the flavors of this remarkable chicken salad.

I love chicken salad but nevertried it with the apples or raisins and I will make it and try it if not I may take the apples out. You can also use grapes instead of raisins. I usually just make mine with the chicken,mayo and spices. This recipe is fast and simple and a good dish to bring to a athering.

This chicken salad really does look simple! I am not a big fan of fruit in my chicken salad, but I could always leave those out. I prefer my chicken salad plain, I suppose. There are many variances of chicken salad, hopefully this one is good! Usually I make it with chicken and mayonnaise.

I love chicken salad, especially for when I'm doing meal prep. This looks so easy! I'll have to give it a try )

I love easy and the ingredients on this recipe sound mouthwatering. I have always been a fan of chicken salad but I hardly ever make it. However, the next whole chicken I prepare, I plan to stash the two cups needed to make this recipe. I wonder if this would be a good recipe to use turkey as well?

The ingredients in this recipe read just like my husband wrote it. I have seen chicken salad recipes like this but I do not care for it. However, when we do have leftover chicken, this would be a great way to get the husband to eat the leftovers which he seldom does.

I love the look of this chicken salad. I have to try it with apples and raisins. I think I'm going to like the sweet and savoury flavors. I love yogurt dressings too. I eat a lot of chicken salads but I have never tried one with a creamy dressing like this.

We're a family who loves chicken salad and I've made this type of salad since time immemorial but I haven't tried it with Greek yogurt, apple and mustard. I think they will make the salad more flavorful and more exciting to eat. Not sure thought if all the family members will like it. I can't wait to make this Easy 5-Minute Chicken Salad. Cheers!

I haven't yet experimented with using Greek yogurt as a mayo substitute. Usually I make mine with chicken, mayo, celery, and dill. I love the taste of dill in it and I bet the mustard would be a great addition. I have also never put apple in mine either! I guess I need to spread my wings and bring my chicken salad game up a bit. I like the idea of dates as well as mentioned below.

This really is a quick recipe to make and it sounds amazing. I've never had chicken salad with Dijon or any type of mustard before but I'll definitely give it a try. My chicken salad is a little similar to this...except I use chopped dates, sliced green grapes and mayo. Love the idea of Greek yogurt too!

I love a good chicken salad. I make mine in a completely different way which is why I love this website so much as it is so full of great ideas. I would never have thought to add raisins or apples to a chicken salad but I love the sound of this and am going to make it.

I love chicken salad! This recipe would be great to make for lunches

My husband loves chicken salad and I usually make it with mayo and celery and also a good amount of dill. I'm not sure if the Greek yogurt and raisins will pass muster with him but it would with me! I like just about everything. I haven't added mustard to my chicken salad yet but I'd give this a try because it looks light and summery and who doesn't need a good summer chicken salad recipe?

Not only delicious but also made with ingredients that we all have in our pantries and what could be better than that? Whenever I cook chicken I try to make extra because it is so easy to make into a fairly instant meal just like this one! Today was a gorgeous summery day (even though we are heading to winter here in South Africa) so we had this for lunch with fresh green salad and crunchy Italian bread. Heaven!
