This healthy gluten-free Mediterranean Greek yogurt chicken salad recipe is a delicious twist for a healthy lunch or dinner! We love this tasty chicken salad wrapped up in Bibb lettuce or Romaine lettuce leaves for a grain-free protein packed meal that will keep you fueled. Using Greek yogurt instead of high-fat mayo keeps this protein packed meal low-fat, low-calorie, and the sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts add an amazing flavor and crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breast, cut into quarters
  • 2 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
