Chicken Feta-tastic !

11 06 2010

I have been promising Bernie and Shannon I would post this. I am a whirlwind of late as the wedding fiasco draws near. I have been making up a few things on the weekend so we are able to mix it up during the week when we are on the go. We go to the St Lawrence market every other week, so the second week things can get a bit more creative as I look to see I have a sad looking califlower or some cheese that i need to use… but i digress, as this recipe is SOOO easy, great for leftovers, completely satisfying and has huge protein numbers.

Sometimes I just throw a frozen chicken breast in the crock pot with a bit of lemon juice and chicken broth on Sunday morning, and make this up after Sunday dinner heading into our busy work week…onto the recipe !!

Chicken Feta Salad

3 cups of cold chopped chicken (gauge the rest of the recipe by the amt. of chicken you have..1 cup, then divide everything else by a 3rd)
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 red pepper , chopped (or green pepper, or no pepper at all !)
1/2 onion, chopped (if you plan on eating this for a few days, i recommend dried onions, as they wont get stronger as it sits in the fridge)
6 tablespoons sour cream (or greek yogurt, or plain yogurt .. you get the idea)
6 tablespoons may (hellmans light for me)
a pinch of salt and pepper
a dash of garlic powder (if you like)
a dash of lemon (if you like) as well as some dill
1 pkg (4 ounces=1/2 cup approx) feta, crumbled

assemble ingredients.. note that i didnt have sour cream, so i used yogurt.. it doesnt matter to the recipe, it is just to make it saucy and cut the amt of mayo you are using ! Experiment !

Mix it up and Bob’s your uncle !! I eat half a cup of this with a rye lavash for lunch.. delicious and finally a good “leftover’ meal from that store roasted chicken you bought the night before !

The nutritional details for this recipe are as follows (it varies slightly depending on sour cream vs yogurt, but not enough to worry about) : 1/2 cup serving has
247 calories, 8 grams of fat, 7.5 carbs, 38 grams of protein seriously !! a solid protein source !!

enjoy !
