On weekday mornings, I whip up this fun chicken and blueberry combination in minutes to take for lunch. It also works as a nice, light salad for a summer supper, and it’s a cinch to double it for a shower or potluck. —Kari Caven, Coeur d'Alene, ID

"Very good! I am on WW so it is perfect for the plan. Couldn't find any fat free lemon yogurt so use Blueberry Lemon Fat Free Greek Yogurt. I had a package of precooked chicken that I used. Could use a little more season besides salt. Will definitely be making it again."

"Excellent! We just started go to a Nutritionist to learn how to control my husband's diabetes 2 & help him to lose weight. We had to make major changes in what we eat. We live in Phoenix & it is so hot in summer. No way did I want to spend a lot of time in kitchen. My TOH Simple Cooking June/Jul 2013 arrived in the mail that day. I saw this recipe went to grocery store & made it next day. I left out the salt because we are cutting back on sodium. We just love it. The servings are so filling. There are only 2 of us, so had leftovers next day. Was still delicious. Plan to have at least twice a month. This is a recipe that is great to serve guest too!!"
