stop being a chicken.

i’ve got nothing hilarious to tell you this morning so i am not going to try.

so i decided to give you a recipe. and a funny picture.

my sister told me she was making chicken salad this one time. and i barfed a little in my mouth.

because i hate [HATE] mayo. you guys knew this.

but then i got sad because it sounded SO good.

so i put my thinking cap on and decided i could make do with something else.

greek yogurt.

don’t barf yet. give me a sec.

the [i hate mayo] chicken salad
1 rotisserie chicken chopped [i also don’t touch raw meat]
1 bunch of red grapes halved
1 handful of chopped dill
1 single serving of greek yogurt [i don’t use fat free. go for the real deal]
2-3 big stalks of celery chopped
handful of slivered almonds [if you are allergic..please leave these out]
squirt of lemon juice [real or out of the squeeze thing]
salt and pepper to taste

just throw it all in a bowl and let is chill in the fridge.

SO easy. and so delicious without mayo.

toast up some bread and eat it.

and put a stache on your sister’s dog. just for good measure.

i basically replace everything that says mayo with greek yogurt. tuna salad is also a good variation.

try it. tell me what you think.

  1. I gag in my mouth over chicken salad too. Simply because I can't stand it, not because of the mayo.

  2. I think I gag a little when people say chicken salad. Matter of fact, it was at work at our pot luck yesterday, and I think I up chucked a little! UGH! But I love greek yogurt… so maybe I need to try YOUR recipe! Hmm..

  3. The chicken salad recipe sounds delish! And also I'm cracking up at your sister's dog with a mustache. HILARIOUS. xoxo, morgan

  4. I dig this. You get my big ol stamp of approval. And I'm sure that means SO MUCH TO YOU

    jk.

    p.s. loved your vlog/story yesterday but wasn't at a computer to comment.

  5. I love mayo. My friend and I were talking about it just last night. I LOVE MAYO. I hate miracle whip. and i hate greek yogurt, so therefor I will never eat your chiken salad. EVER. WHITNEY.

    WHAT'S YO ADDRESS????

  6. Nice allergic comment, so thoughtful.

  7. You hate mayo. And I just saw on someone else's blog that you hate leftovers.

    I may have to re-evaluate our friendship.

  8. I just threw up in my mouth. I hate mayo and greek yogurt! And any salad without leafy greens….nasty! But so glad you found something you like 🙂 haha

  9. Oh you are a clever one. I, too, am grossed out by mayo, but clearly not the extent you are. I can handle it when it's hidden in chicken/tuna salad. I must try the greek yogurt substition. Why no fat-free, though? I always get Chobani 0%.

  10. I make my chicken salad with yogurt also! It's such a great substitution for mayo – not only in chick salad!

  11. That is SUCH a good idea!! I will definitely make this! ps HILARIOUS photo I laughed out loud (: xo L

  12. ha ha nicely done!

  13. that dog with the stache made me laugh out loud! Love it!

  14. 1. Almost peed myself a little with the pup and the 'stache.

    2. I sub greek yogurt for almost anything. Like those Philedelphia cooking cream things? Screw them. Use greek yogurt and spices to make your chicken bomb dot com.
