2 celery ribs, chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 1⁄2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt (regular or Greek)
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon chives, chopped

Combine chicken, celery and chives in a medium bowl. I use bone-in, skin-on chicken breast that I season with salt, pepper and garlic and roast at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Discard the skin and bones and cut into cubes.
Add mayo and yogurt and stir to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on a whole wheat bun or scoop onto a bed of lettuce.
