1/2 cup frozen peas

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup plain fat free yogurt

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Whole grain pocket pita

Cook’s Note

Chicken salad is also great on top of a green salad or with crackers. Leftover chicken salad keeps up to 5 days refrigerated.
