Ingredients

Vegetable cooking spray
6 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons chopped almonds
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice, undrained
3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup thinly sliced celery (about 3 medium ribs)
5 red leaf lettuce leaves

Preparation

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet; let cool slightly, and coarsely chop chicken.

While chicken cooks, place a small heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add almonds, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until toasted. Set almonds aside.

Drain pineapple tidbits, reserving 3 tablespoons juice. Combine reserved pineapple juice, yogurt, curry powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring well. Add chicken, pineapple, and celery; toss well.

Spoon chicken salad evenly onto 5 individual lettuce-lined salad plates. Sprinkle evenly with almonds.

Note:

Use leftover chopped cooked chicken or turkey. Or use deli-roasted chicken; just remember that the sodium and fat content may be higher.
