Healthy Chicken Salad

 This chicken salad is a healthier version of the classic. It is inspired from a Barefoot Contessa recipe my mother-in-law gave  me (she makes the BEST chicken salad). But I also was influenced by a chicken salad sandwich I used to get at Dos Gringos back in DC. I lightened the recipe up and it is so great without any mayo! You can just serve it as is, with some greens on the side (arugula is a nice contrast), or put it in a roll-up. Eat it guilt free.

Makes 10 - 1/2 cup servings
WW = 3 points

1 1/4 lb chicken breast tenderloin
1/2 apple (pink ladies are the best)
1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
tarragon (to taste)
sea salt and pepper (to taste)

1. Pan sear the chicken in a grill pan until fully cooked. Allow chicken to cool. Then dice into cubes. Don't cut the chicken too small as you want some texture in the salad.
2. Cut apples into tiny cubes.
3. In a large bowl, mix chicken, apple, and yogurt. Add tarragon, salt, and pepper (to taste) and stir until thoroughly mixed.
