Healthier Chicken Salad


I was looking on Pinterest for quick and easy dinner ideas, when an avocado chicken salad popped up and I thought that would be perfect for dinner and I had all the ingredients.  When I got home I realized that the avocados were not ripe yet, and decided why not make regular chicken salad.  I had just bought a huge container of Gerek yogurt the night before, and decided to make a healthy alternative instead of using a ton of mayonnaise.  The recipe was super creamy and it was delicious.  I served it over a bed of spinach, and my roommate had hers on a sandwich and both ways were DELICIOUS.
