Arby’s Grilled Chicken & Pecan Salad (Copycat) tastes just like the stuff you get at the popular fast food chain, without the sodium because you can control the salt!!

For this recipe I actually didn’t grill the chicken. I baked it in the oven.

It was four boneless, skinless chicken breasts that were slathered with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and baked for about 40 minutes in a 350° oven.

I had taken the chicken out for dinner, ended up eating something else that night, and needed to cook the chicken so it wouldn’t go to waste. So I decided to make this Chicken & Pecan Salad.

I did, however, come up with the idea for this after I ate it at Arby’s. To me it tastes just like the stuff I get there.

When I eat their version I can’t taste that the chicken was grilled.

In an effort to make this as healthy as possible I also used half mayo and half plain lowfat yogurt. I try to do that whenever possible and a lot of times I find the tanginess of the yogurt to be a nice addition.

The crunch of the celery and apple, the sweetness of the grapes, the tender and tasty chicken, and the tangy sauce make this delicious and refreshing.

These Potato Wedges or Ina Garten’s Baked Sweet Potato Fries would go great with this!

    This sounds legit! Grapes… Yum, we like to add a lil’ sweetness to chicken salad! If you ever want to make it less healthy, try subbing out the healthy yogurt for cream cheese… sooo creamy. Thanks for sharing!!!

      I’m upset they took it off the menu, too! Although I make it at home, I still liked being able to get it out. Thanks!

    Thanks for posting recipe. I was all set for Arby’s to bring back their chicken salad for summer and my Arby’s said they won’t have it anymore. Oh no! This will keep me from going into withdrawal…Haha!

      That is a bummer! Although I like making it myself, I also like that it is (was) and option if I wanted to just pick something up. They have done away with the waffle fries as well-(makes sad face). At least we can make it ourselves. Also, I use half mayo and half plain yogurt to make it a little healthier, for a more authentic taste I just use all mayo sometimes. Thanks for stopping by!

    I actually NEED to eat more salt because of VERY low blood pressure…but I keep forgetting to add salt in my food plus, I don’t like too salty food. So can’t wait to try this beauty!

      I see why you don’t like foods too salty, I am the same way! Food has such good taste to begin with that is doesn’t need too much salt. Good luck with your blood pressure, hopefully it will get better soon.
