Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

October 3, 2013

My “Four Week Chicken Challenge” is winding down, and I really can’t believe how many recipes I have accumulated that I haven’t made yet! I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pinterest searching for Chicken Recipes, and now I have a ton that I want to try!!! Maybe I’ll add another week to my Chicken Challenge??? Nah……But I do have several recipes yet to try, and if they are a success, I will be adding them to my nicely growing list of “Low Point Meals” under the “Recipe” tab at the top of this page.

For the recipe I am posting today, I was thinking Chicken Salad, but I didn’t want one that was heavy with mayo, so I was thinking mustard? I really only started liking mustard in the last couple of years. I’m amazed at how my taste buds are still changing as I get older. There’s still a pretty good list of foods that I’m not crazy about, like raw sushi, but I still taste it once in awhile, just in case. Like my personality, my palate isn’t very mature. Maybe in my 80’s, I’ll be a sushi regular, or even beef tartare? But, I doubt it.

I love Chicken Salad made with grapes and celery, but I wasn’t real sure how that would taste with mustard vs. mayo, so I decided a “little” bit of mayo might be okay, and I went with Honey Mustard!!


1/4 C. Light Mayo

1 T. Dijon Mustard

2 T. Honey

1 Pound Cooked Chicken, cut into bite size pieces or shredded

1 Celery Stalk, chopped

1 Cup of Red Grapes cut in half

1/2 C. of Water Chestnuts, diced

Salt and Pepper, to taste

Serves 4

1 Serving = 7 PPV


Combine Mayo, Dijon Mustard and Honey and mix well.



Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl.



Add Honey Mustard mixture.



Stir until all ingredients are mixed well.



Divide into 4 servings. 1 Serving = 7 PPV



Serve on bread, in a wrap, on a bed of lettuce, or simply in a dish!
