Updated Chicken Salad

I have a love/hate relationship with chicken salad. When done right, it can be decadent, flavorful and satisfying. When done wrong, it can be both dry and too mushy at the same time with little flavor and too much mayonnaise. I made this one to have on hand for quick and easy lunches at work - a great midday meal!

Updated Chicken Salad

3 cups chicken breast, shredded (I purchased a rotisserie chicken from the store- so easy!)
1 cup low fat, plain Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons diced shallots
3 ribs celery, sliced
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 lemons, zested and juiced
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine chicken, yogurt, shallots, celery, raisins and almonds in a large bowl. Add lemon zest and juice and parsley, then season to taste. Serve over spring greens or with some tasty bread.
