When you start with cooked chicken (like a rotisserie bird or chicken breasts that you’ve poached or slow-cooked ahead of time), it takes only five minutes and four additional ingredients to make a big batch of herby chicken salad. Greek yogurt lends bright notes and creaminess, store-bought pesto adds lots of herby-cheesy goodness, and a finishing flourish of lemon zest enlivens all the flavours. Serve a scoop over a bed of lettuce, tuck into sandwiches or wraps, or enjoy on crackers (just be sure to track any additional SmartPoints values).
