Apple Cranberry Apricot Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps are made with fresh fall flavors, Greek yogurt and romaine heart leaves to create a healthier chicken salad that the entire family will love!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • whole garlic clove
  • 1 medium granny smith apple chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt*
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 ounces organicgirl romaine heart leaves

Instructions

  1. Fill a 3 to 3.5-quart sauce pan full of water. Add the chicken breasts and garlic clove. Bring to a full boil and then turn off the heat and cover the pot. After 12 minutes, remove one of the breasts and cut into the thickest part to check to see if they are done (they should be cooked through and register at least 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer). If there is any pink, return to the pot for another 15 minutes. Drain chicken through a colander, discard the garlic clove and cool slightly.
  2. Chop or shred the chicken into small pieces. Add the chicken, apple, celery, cranberries and apricots to a large bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, honey, apple cider vinegar, poppy seeds and salt. Add the yogurt mixture to the large bowl with the chicken mixture and toss well to combine. Spoon the chicken salad over the romaine heart leaves and enjoy!

Notes

*You can substitute half or all of the Greek yogurt for mayonnaise, if you prefer.
