Gluten Free Chicken Salad Recipe

Last Updated on

I usually prefer chicken breasts, in gluten free chicken salad sandwiches, but I had a little left over dark meat chicken on hand, and because it was dark meat every time I looked at it, it reminded me of turkey. I then began to crave one of my old favorites, turkey, cream cheese and cranberry sauce sandwiches, which I have not had in years. But I usually like to eat a bit lighter than that for lunch, especially with all the appetizers I tested recently. Greek yogurt makes a great low-fat substitute for cream cheese, as well as mayonnaise, in sandwiches. Since I had dried cranberries on hand makes this recipe came close to my old favorite, but I added in a little feta cheese, which wasn’t really noticeable, but added flavor. A little added celery, walnuts and a touch of agave syrup did the trick! Get creative and make your own adjustments to this easy recipe. Perhaps some onion. What will you use?
