Feta Chicken Salad Adapted from LivingAfterWLS 5 Day Pouch Test Recipes
This is a recipe that is allowed on Day 3, soft proteins, but I made it my own. I really love the flavors of a greek salad, so I added a few extras to make this taste more like that.
3 cups cooked chicken, chopped (I used rotisserie chicken from the store, but the recipe says you can use canned chicken) 1/2 stalks celery, diced 1/2 red bell pepper, diced 1 green onion, sliced 1 roma tomato, diced (grape tomatoes would be a great substitute here) 6 tablespoons mayonnaise 6 tablespoons sour cream 1 cup feta cheese 1/4 cup greek vinaigrette (I make my own) 1 teaspoon oregano 1 tablespoon kalmata olive juice (if you like the actual olives - they'd be great in this) salt & pepper *next time I might add a bit of cucumber to round out the greek salad theme... or maybe some capers.
In a large serving bowl, mix together the chicken, celery, red onion, bell pepper, tomato, feta, and olives if you choose to add them. In a separate bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinaigrette, oregano, and olive juice - stir to blend. Taste, and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving.
This made me 4 servings at 1 loosely filled cup each...
Serving: I think it would be great in a pita or as a sandwich too, if you're able to eat bread. You could also serve it over lettuce with a side of fresh fruit or greek yogurt... that would make a yummy light lunch.
