Spicey Chicken Salad Recipe

Try This Simple Chicken Salad With A Delicious Salad Dressing

Perfect meal for a summer lunch, Spicey Chicken Salad is quick and easy to make and it goes a long way if you serve it with crispy rolls. The recipe says chicken breast cubes but you can easily use left-over chicken from any part of a cooked chicken.

Using the non-fat / fat-free yogurt is a good alternative for the usual mayonaise so commonly used in chicken salad recipes. If you need to feed a lot of people then consider serving it over cold pasta or rice. So it's still a salad but a bit more substantial. The cayenne pepper is what gives it the spice factor and you might want to adjust the amount according to how much spicey you prefer. Serves 5.
