Easy Greek Chicken Salad Recipe

Thank you to Foster Farms® Organic Chicken for sponsoring today’s easy chicken salad recipe. I was compensated for my time, but the content and opinions are my own.

This easy chicken salad is made with organic ingredients and with a Greek twist!

Don’t you love chicken salad? It’s the perfect way to put leftover chicken to good use. You can use it for sandwiches, lettuce wraps, or even as a pasta salad base. The only thing I don’t like is that it’s often heavy with mayonnaise, so it isn’t the healthiest choice. That’s why today I’m showing you how to make a quick and easy chicken salad with a Greek yogurt base instead!

The yogurt adds a tangy flavor, lots of protein, and won’t weigh you down like mayo. What’s even better is that this entire recipe can be made organic thanks to Foster Farms® Organic Chicken and other ingredients you can find at your local store. Did you know that Foster Farms® has an organic fresh chicken line now? It’s grown locally right here in Northern California, and it’s Non-GMO Project Verified, which makes me feel good about serving it to my family. I also like that I don’t have to go out of my way to find organic chicken since it’s available right at my little neighborhood Safeway!

This recipe is super easy to make, but one important note is to be sure you seed the cucumber and leave most of the tomato seeds and juice behind. The flavor is best if it sits in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving, and if you add all those seeds, it will get too watered down.

If you’d like a richer flavor, this easy chicken salad tastes really great with a bit of reduced-fat feta cheese stirred in. I have to say that I think cheese makes most everything better. (Except apple pie. That’s just wrong.) It can be hard to find organic feta cheese though, so it’s totally optional if you want to skip it.

Hi, Sharon. I’m sorry you are having trouble printing. I’m not sure how to fix the problem because the print feature works for me. I’m working with the developer of the recipe software to try to find the issue now. In the meantime the only thing I can suggest is trying a different browser. I am able to print in Chrome. As soon as I get more info and a fix, I’ll let you know. Thanks for your patience!

Hi, Andi! I made this Greek Chicken Salad yesterday, because I had leftover baked chicken and all the ingredients on hand. It is fabulous, and will be my go-to recipe for chicken leftovers. Really yummy, low fat, protein rich – what’s not to love?

Thank you so much for sharing! I really enjoy your blog and I’m never disappointed when I try your recipes!

Since I’m the only one in my house who will eat tomatoes what do you think about subbing in raw green beans or snap/snowpeas or celery? None of them are everyone’s favorite either (ewww they’re green) but can’t make everyone happy. I’m not running a restaurant & I like them all.

I feel like I’m running a restaurant sometimes! My kids don’t like anything. You could definitely sub in something for the tomatoes. What about diced red bell peppers for non-green color. Do they like those? I’m sure whatever you choose will be great!

I don’t think there is anything that could make this look any better, besides me having a fork and eating it!
