This is like the freon of food. No, really.
Homo sapiens need coolants too, ya know. I mean, sure, we have the waters of the oceans and the natural breezes of the earth. But I'm talking about another level here. I'm talking about a creamy, crunchy, cool, crisp level that have will you scoffing the very presence of heat.
I'm guessing you already know what it is based on, um, this entire post. But let me build it up anyway.
Drum roll please…….Greek. Yogurt. Chicken. Salad.
Omg, all that cool Greek yogurt coating poached and chopped chickeeeeeen, please. And do we need to even mention the cool grapes and the cool celery and the cool mixed greens?
I'm basically freezing talking about this.
Poach a couple of chicken breasts for about 15 minutes, let it cool and give it a rough chop. (You could also use leftover chicken here.) Grab some Yoplait Greek yogurt, celery, grapes, candied pecans and some mixed greens.
Now, once you chop your chicken, you can totally put it in the fridge for as long as you want to cool it even more. And then you'll just mix in the yogurt (I started at 2 Tbsp and then added a little more, so put as much or as little as you want in it), the grapes and celery. Toss in a pinch of salt and pepper. Take a picture of it. I'm just kidding.
Give her a stir.
Then you plate! Mix the greens together, and arrange them on your plates. Then top with the chicken salad. And finally, garnish with the candied pecans. PEE-CAWNS.
And then get right up in it and sing love songs.
Look at you all coooool.*If this salad doesn't do the trick, just stick your head in the freezer. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
