A couple years ago I was hosting a girls night at my house and wanted to have some good appetizer foods to offer. I found a recipe for chicken cucumber cups that contained a lot of mayo. I'm not a fan of low-fat mayo so I worked with Greek yogurt until it tasted "right."
It was surprisingly pretty good. The taste of plain non-fat Greek Yogurt completely changes when you add salt & pepper, especially when you add any other seasonings. I've actually used yogurt in place of mayo on a bunch of dishes. And, some people didn't even notice when I served it to them.
This dish has a nice flavor combination. The savory chicken meets the sweet cranberry together with the freshness of the cucumbers. Yum! Plus, the cucumbers make very sturdy little bowls and give it a great pop of color.
After serving the cups to my friends, I continued to make the recipe over and over when I wanted to give myself a fancy-looking treat.
I know that a big part of losing weight is to be prepared everywhere you go. While it's best to serve the cucumber right after cutting it, you could make everything ahead of time and keep the cups and chicken mix separate. Then you'd just have to assemble and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy these chicken cucumber cups.
I want to hear from you - what dishes would you like to see healthier versions of? What dishes have helped you to stay on track while trying to meet your weight loss goals?
That's it for today, have a great weekend, everyone!
