Ingredients:

2 cups chicken, cooked and cubed (use Instant Pot chicken)
1 Asian pear, large (can use apple for a substitution) (drizzle with lemon juice to prevent browning if you wish)
1 cup grapes, halved across the width
1 stalk celery, diced fine
1 tbs red onion, diced fine
½ cup pecan pieces

Dressing
3/4 cup yogurt
¼ cup mayonnaise
½ cup orange juice
zest of 1 orange

Directions:

Chopped Chicken

First, you need cooked chicken. I often buy a rotisserie chicken for this or make chicken breasts in the Instant Pot.

Add your other salad ingredients (not the dressing ingredients) and combine.

Chicken Pear Salad Dressing
In another small bowl, combine the ingredients for the dressing. The orange juice should be added in small increments until you’ve reach the consistency that you prefer.
Note: I did not add any sugar to the dressing, but if the orange that you use is slightly more tart, then you may want to add a bit of sugar. )

Mix the dressing into the chicken mixture. Serve on lettuce leaves or on bread slices immediately, or keep covered in the refrigerator, chilled, for an hour or so.

I love this lightened up chicken salad recipe - the pecans and grapes really make it different from plain old chicken salad!
