Chicken Salad Unwrapped

challenge1_chicken_saladI love this light lunch mostly because I get to eat it with my hands and it’s has great flavor.


3 chicken breast (boneless & skinless)
1 cucumber
1 celery stalk
3 fresh Basil leaves
Romaine lettuce leaves
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Smattering of lemon zest

Boil the chicken breast for 20 minutes, let cool and cut into small chunks. Cut the cucumber and celery into small squares, chop the Basil leaves, and place in a large mixing bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice, zest zest the lemon peel and add to the bowl. Add the  yogurt, mustard and chicken and fold together. Scoop 1/2 cup of the chicken salad mixture inside the Romaine lettuce leaves. Serve with hot tea and take a walk after eating — remembering to breathe and enjoy the endorphins.
