Endless Summer Snacks

Chicken makes a delicious and convenient snack that will satisfy hunger and cravings throughout the day and keep everyone in the crowd happy and energized for the summer adventures ahead. Instead of our usual recipe format, this time we’re serving up some easy, healthy and tasty chicken snack ideas that can be adapted to your tastes and preferences!

Grilled Chicken Skewers: Marinate chicken breast in your favorite herbs and spices (Mrs. Dash has some handy ones that are all lower sodium and delightful) and a tablespoon of greek yogurt. Skewer your chicken and grill it up for a flavorful and high-protein snack. You can also add veggies like bell peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes to make it more nutritious or even a meal.

Baked Chicken Tenders: Coat chicken tenders in a mixture of breadcrumbs, flour and seasonings, then bake in the oven for a crispy and satisfying snack. Serve with a healthy dipping sauce like Greek yogurt, hummus, or yogurt-ranch for extra flavor.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps: Use romaine lettuce leaves as a wrap and fill them with shredded chicken breast or pre-cooked grilled chicken tenders, chopped veggies like onion and tomato, top with croutons and a healthy dressing like olive oil and vinegar or tahini sauce.

Chicken Salad: Mix shredded chicken breast with Greek yogurt, diced celery, chopped apples, and a little bit of honey for a sweet and savory chicken salad. Serve it on whole-grain crackers or lettuce leaves.

Buffalo Chicken Dip: Mix shredded chicken breast with Greek yogurt, hot buffalo sauce, and a little bit of blue cheese for a spicy and creamy dip. Serve with celery sticks, carrot sticks, or whole-grain crackers.

Chicken and Avocado Toast: Top whole-grain toast with sliced avocado and grilled chicken breast for a satisfying and nutrient-dense snack. You can also add some tomato slices or a sprinkle of feta cheese for extra flavor.
