My hubby loves this recipe!! excellent option for two! Awesome!

Following In My Shoes July 07, 2011

LOVED this recipe and I wasn't sure that I would; the thought of apples, chicken and mustard didn't sound appetizing but it completely works. The apples, rather than giving a "sweet" component to the dish, provide texture over anything else. It was nice to have that crunch with each bite. I used real bacon as opposed to turkey bacon as that was what I had on hand. The spicy mustard is really subtle when combined with the yogurt and doesn't really make the dish "spicy." I do think, as far as the yogurt goes, that plain greek yogurt would be better since it is thicker. I found the sauce component of this dish too thin and runny. I served this salad as a sandwich, on hearty ciabatta rolls and with mixed spinach/arugula greens. My kids did not enjoy the recipe as much as my husband and I, which is why I gave it a lower rating. One child only ate the apples out of it -- the other child took three bites and refused any more. Can't win 'em all.

Chicken, good. Apples, good. Bacon, very good :) I really enjoyed this bacon chicken salad, as it reminded me of something my mom used to make growing up. I served it up on a mix of arugula and spinach, but did use real bacon instead of turkey bacon. Also, I used plain greek yogurt, not that that makes a huge difference. I could see walnuts or even pecans being a great addition to the salad and may give that a shot next time.

Yvonne June 27, 2011

So honestly, I was completely surprised I enjoyed this recipe as much as I did. Not because it didn't look delicious in the photo,or for the paring of ingredients but because chicken salad is one of my favorite all time things. It's something I've worked to perfect for years so I admit, I was a little hesitant going in. But so tasty!! And much easier to make than how I usually prepare it. I liked that the recipe called for yogurt rather than mayonnaise. This made for a different and pleasant flavor than traditional chicken salad recipes. The apples and green onions added a very nice crunchiness to the dish. A nice way to enjoy this salad rather than by itself or on a sandwich is as small hors d'oeuvres. Just cut French into small slices, put a couple arugula leaves on each, and layer a spoonful of the chicken salad on top! Works great! I will certainly make this again! Oh yes. I made one major change. I poached the chicken instead of frying so it was very tender.

I'm a salad eater, but normally I eat it plain. I like the natural flavors of my fruits and veggies, but decided to give this a shot when a few of my girlfriends came over. I added more chicken than called for and used regular bacon, instead of turkey bacon. I served it in whole wheat pita bread. Thankfully, I had doubled the recipe because everyone wanted seconds. As you can imagine, it got rave reviews from everyone!

Geri June 16, 2011

Hi - I was thrilled to learn last year on Dr. Oz that turkey bacon actually has more salt than regular bacon, so I don't have to give up that flavor and chew on something that usually is not very good. I also don't think margarine is healthy so I would use butter and perhaps part olive oil instead. However, I like the idea of the flavors! Thanks
