Weight Watchers Chicken Salad

Although I tend to eat salads at lunch, I try to switch up my meals so I don't get burnt out on eating the same thing.  A few weeks back, I decided to try Weight Watchers Chicken Salad.  I still served the chicken salad on a mix green salad but I had a whole wheat pita to scope up the chicken salad and lettuce.  It was a perfect switch for lunch and kept me full for the entire day.

For the recipe, you will need:

¾ pound cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast (cut into bite-sized pieces) I used about 2 ½ breasts that I had grilled the night before
½ cup celery, finely diced
1/3 cup unsweetened dill pickles or sweet gherkins, finely diced (I used gherkins)
¼ cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise (I used fat free Miracle Whip)
2 Tbsp reduced-fat sour cream (I used fat free)
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, fresh, chopped (I left out this ingredient)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
½ tsp table salt
¼ black pepper

Place all ingredients in a large bowl; mix until blended

The recipe is 3 Points Plus for 2/3 cup.  Since I used fat free Miracle Whip and Sour Cream the recipe was only 2 Points Plus for 2/3 cup.  I really enjoyed the recipe and am glad I have another option for lunch.
