Healthy TASTY chicken salad

Is there anyone that doesn't like a tasty chicken salad?! It's so good for summer, but they're usually laden with fatty mayonnaise and crap that doesn't do much for your waistline. I found a great recipe from the Food Network and tweaked it so it's CLEAN and healthy.. and guess what... it's delish! Like I kinda can't stop eating it
4 cups diced cooked chicken
1 rib minced celery
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Really all you do is mix up the creamy stuff with spices, and add the chicken, celery and almonds and chill.
SO GOOD and fresh
You can plop it on top of some spinach greens, or wrap it in a whole wheat tortilla. And it's good the  next day for a sandwich!
It makes over 4 cups, and is roughly 320 calories per serving- and loaded with lean protein!

I'm picky about Greek yogurt. Chobani is AWESOME and doesn't separate or have some weird sour taste.
Happy Tuesday.
