Fat free mayo and BBQ sauce make this a great sandwich filling! Fat free mayo and BBQ sauce make this a great sandwich filling!
Number of Servings: 6


    2 bonless skinless chicken breast grilled and shredded or cubed (I marinade in BBQ or hot sauce for extra flavor)
    4 tbsp fat free mayo
    1 tbsp bbq sauce (or hot or other low-cal fat free sauce)
    1 ounce crushed nuts, I prefer walnuts for their texture
    .25 diced apple
    1 tbsp diced onion


Grill chicken. *7 minutes on George Foreman.
Dice onion and apple and crush walnuts.
Combine ingredients and mix well. You can use more or less mayo depending on consistency of salad (at 15 calories a tbsp, it's okay to be liberal).
I like to chill over night to let the flavors mesh, but you can eat right away.
I eat with 1/2 a serving of reduced fat crackers, a lite english muffin toasted or on top of salad mix (no need for dressing then).
Depending on how much you use, this will yield between 6-8 portions.

Number of Servings: 6

    This is Great, quick & easy to prepare. Ingredients seemed an odd combination but once together the flavors blend nicely. I made as directed minus apple because I didn't have one. Held its own w/a heavily grained/seeded bread. Will Make Again and be sure to have an apple on hand. - 6/12/12

    GREAT!! very tasty and a great twist on regular chicken salad! The bbq sauce tastes amazing. I used 2 tbs regular mayo and 2 tbs fat free plain yogurt since I only had regular mayo on hand. - 7/9/10
