Creamy Apple Walnut Chicken Salad Recipe

Creamy Chicken Salad

This chicken salad recipe is a great summertime meal!

Here is a delicious chicken salad recipe that’s loaded with fresh chunks of chicken that are quickly sauteed in olive oil and combined with celery,apples and a dreamy…creamy sauce made of low fat sour cream, a little lemon juice and stone ground mustard.  By using the low fat sour cream you will save on some calories and it tastes delicious too. Toss in some walnuts and you have a feast!

If you are short on time, remember that you can always use a rotisserie chicken from your local deli instead of cooking the chicken breasts.  There is nothing wrong with taking advantage of time savers here and there when cooking.
