I love easy and the ingredients on this recipe sound mouthwatering. I have always been a fan of chicken salad but I hardly ever make it. However, the next whole chicken I prepare, I plan to stash the two cups needed to make this recipe. I wonder if this would be a good recipe to use turkey as well?

The ingredients in this recipe read just like my husband wrote it. I have seen chicken salad recipes like this but I do not care for it. However, when we do have leftover chicken, this would be a great way to get the husband to eat the leftovers which he seldom does.

I love the look of this chicken salad. I have to try it with apples and raisins. I think I'm going to like the sweet and savoury flavors. I love yogurt dressings too. I eat a lot of chicken salads but I have never tried one with a creamy dressing like this.

We're a family who loves chicken salad and I've made this type of salad since time immemorial but I haven't tried it with Greek yogurt, apple and mustard. I think they will make the salad more flavorful and more exciting to eat. Not sure thought if all the family members will like it. I can't wait to make this Easy 5-Minute Chicken Salad. Cheers!

I haven't yet experimented with using Greek yogurt as a mayo substitute. Usually I make mine with chicken, mayo, celery, and dill. I love the taste of dill in it and I bet the mustard would be a great addition. I have also never put apple in mine either! I guess I need to spread my wings and bring my chicken salad game up a bit. I like the idea of dates as well as mentioned below.

This really is a quick recipe to make and it sounds amazing. I've never had chicken salad with Dijon or any type of mustard before but I'll definitely give it a try. My chicken salad is a little similar to this...except I use chopped dates, sliced green grapes and mayo. Love the idea of Greek yogurt too!

I love a good chicken salad. I make mine in a completely different way which is why I love this website so much as it is so full of great ideas. I would never have thought to add raisins or apples to a chicken salad but I love the sound of this and am going to make it.

I love chicken salad! This recipe would be great to make for lunches

My husband loves chicken salad and I usually make it with mayo and celery and also a good amount of dill. I'm not sure if the Greek yogurt and raisins will pass muster with him but it would with me! I like just about everything. I haven't added mustard to my chicken salad yet but I'd give this a try because it looks light and summery and who doesn't need a good summer chicken salad recipe?

Not only delicious but also made with ingredients that we all have in our pantries and what could be better than that? Whenever I cook chicken I try to make extra because it is so easy to make into a fairly instant meal just like this one! Today was a gorgeous summery day (even though we are heading to winter here in South Africa) so we had this for lunch with fresh green salad and crunchy Italian bread. Heaven!
