Ingredients

    11-12 oz Chopped Chicken Breasts (I grilled mine with Lowry's seasoning salt)
    1/2 cup Minced Red Onion
    2 Tbs. freeze dried basil (You can use fresh too!)
    2 tsp. Garlic Powder
    1/4 Cup + 1 Tbs. Daisy Sour Cream
    1/8 Cup Vegenaise (This is a vegan mayo. I prefer the flavor to regular mayonnaise)
    Salt and Pepper to taste


    (Pictured above is 1/4 cup serving Chicken Salad with 1/4 cup baby spinach and 2 slices Dave's Killer Bread.)

Tips

Mixing while the chicken is still warm always turns out better for me. It allows the juice from the chicken to mesh with the sour cream and mayo for even more flavor.


Directions

Mix all ingredients together and let sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to mesh.

Serve with crackers, or pile 1/4 cup on your favorite healthy bread or wrap with some raw baby spinach (to get in an extra serving of veggies).

Serving Size: Makes 4-5 1/2 cup servings
