I did opt to use romaine as the base of the salad with just a bit of chopped parsley as my family prefers that. My teenager didn't think she would like it - not a fan of yogurt or mayo - but she gave it 5 stars and wants me to make it again soon. I'd love to use left over grilled chicken instead of buying rotisserie chicken next time. Loved the pita chips too. Definitely adding to our regular rotation.
Husband loves it, great for work lunches. Made three or four times now....do agree that the pita chips are the best part though!
I find rotisserie chicken to be quite expensive compared to chicken breast you can prepare yourself. I marinate my chicken breast in Kraft Greek Vinaigrette dressing. That really helps flavor the chicken and keep it moist. The chicken is then grilled with a light dusting of powdered milk , which gives it those dark grill marks for added flavor and visual appeal without changing the flavor of the chicken. The parsley and cherry tomato salad is incredibly fresh tasting, especially if you grow your own parsley and tomatoes. I flavor the yogurt dressing with just a bit of the Greek Vinaigrette Yes, with little tweaks, this recipe goes from Joe Average to something really delicious and fresh tasting. If I have some available, I serve with pitted black olives.
I thought this recipe was okay. Pretty basic and there's nothing really that unique or special about it. Truthfully, the pita chips were the best part and even that wasn't very inventive. The chicken salad tastes good, I'm just not sure it was exciting enough to make again.
