Helpful hints

  • You can stuff pita pockets with this chicken salad, or serve on low-sodium crackers or toast. For a snack size, serve in small cups, or on a single cracker.
  • Carol recommends EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder, a whey protein available in many stores such as Costco® and Walmart®. If unavailable in your area, ask your dietitian for recommendations on other protein powder brands. 
  • Protein powder contributes 24 grams per 1/2 cup. Products vary amount of protein and serving size.
