TWO Delicious Recipes with Yogurt – Curry Chicken Salad and Greek Chicken

Create delicious family meals with yogurt!

Yogurt is without a doubt one of my favourite healthy snacks. I love yogurt because there are so many delicious flavours making it impossible for it to be boring. More than just a snack, you can add it to a favourite dinner recipe or try a new one, like the Greek Chicken and Curry Chicken Salad recipes we’re about to share! These are some tasty meals that will have you wondering what else you can create with yogurt.

Curry Chicken Salad with Peach YogurtCurry Chicken Salad

I love this Curry Chicken Salad because of its sweet, spicy, savoury and tart flavour. Oh, and did I mention it was easy to make? The creamy dressing, made with Walmart Great Value Peach Yogurt, is the perfect complement to this salad’s crispy apples, tender chicken and crunchy almonds. Not only is it packed with flavour and super-simple to make, it’s also easy on the wallet at just over $2 per serving!

Curry Chicken Salad Ingredients

All you need is cooked and cooled chicken and a selection of basic veggies. This meal is great for busy moms because it takes just 10 minutes to prepare. I love that this recipe is quick, healthy and most importantly, delicious. The peach yogurt paired with the curry paste creates a flavourful dressing that is a whole new level of tasty!

  • 2 cups chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 1 royal gala apple, cored and chopped

Notes
Kitchen Tip: You can make this salad even more filling by adding some brown rice or wheat berries to the chicken and apples mixture just before tossing to combine with the dressing.

Greek-Style Chicken Legs and Potato Salad 

Did you know that yogurt is also fabulous as a marinade for meats? It adds flavour and makes the meat oh so tender. For this Greek Chicken recipe we used Great Value Plain Yogurt to marinade chicken and as a dressing on yummy potato salad for a delicious meal that left us feeling full and content.

Greek-Style Chicken Legs and Potato Salad

A yogurt marinade is less acidic than citrus version so it breaks down proteins more slowly resulting in meats that are tender and moist. Let me tell you, after barbecuing, this chicken was super moist and delicious. My whole family loved this meal.

For this recipe, you can let your chicken legs marinate while you prepare the yogurt and fresh herb potato salad or for an extra flavour boost, let the marinating continue overnight.  You just need Great Value Plain 0% Yogurt, lemon zest, cloves of garlic, salt, pepper, minced oregano leaves, chicken legs, red baby potatoes and fresh dill.
