Lighter Chicken Salad

I love love LOVE chicken salad. My best friend is actually the one who introduced it to me many years ago. I know that that sounds retarded but, in my house growing up, it was always tuna.

I havent actually tried any of this yet this week because I like to let chicken salad sit for a day or two before consumption. I dont know if it's all in my head but it always tastes better after it sits.

This is my first full week off of Nutrisystem lunches so I guess we'll see where I am at the end of the week.

Yields 3 servings.
169.4 calories per serving.
Taken from skinnytaste.com.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 chicken bullion cube
1/4 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 tbsp light mayonnaise

In a medium saucepan place chicken, half the celery, & half the onion and cover with water (I used about 2 cups.)
Add bullion cube & cook over medium heat covered for about 20 minutes.
Once cooked through remove chicken & let cool.
Reserve chicken broth.

Cut chicken into small pieces & place in a bowl.
Add remaining celery & onions as well as mayonnaise and 1/8 reserved broth.
Mix well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Im anxious to have this for lunch tomorrow!
