Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


1/4 cup light mayonnaise

1 1/2 tbsp. fat-free plain Greek yogurt

3/4 tsp. honey

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, divided

3 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro, or more for topping

1/3 cup finely chopped red onion

1 1/2 cups frozen sweet corn kernels

6 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast


In a medium bowl, combine mayo, yogurt, honey, chili powder, and cumin. Mix until uniform.

Fold in 2 tbsp. feta and the cilantro.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook and stir until slightly softened, about 3 minutes.
