Ranch Chicken Salad BLT’s

Many of my new recipes lately have been a direct result of my desire to continue Stretching my Chicken. This one is no exception. I found this recipe in an insert in a Rachael Ray magazine.

Of course I had to change things up a bit as I just can’t leave well enough alone. I really like to try to lighten a recipe up as much as possible without compromising the taste too much. Again I swapped in Greek yogurt, reduced the amount of mayo and ever so painfully, reduced the amount of bacon called for in the original recipe. I did not get around to making rolls from scratch this time but sometimes, things have to give a little. So here it is, ridiculously simple and insanely delicious.
