Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

I LOVE chicken salad. When I still worked outside of the house, my favorite place to go for lunch was this little bakery that makes the BEST chicken salad. I always felt guilty eating it though, because I guesstimate that it was probably about 8000 calories per pound (give or take)! And they served it on grilled beer bread…Man it tasted so good, but it definitely wasn’t the healthiest thing to eat every day. Luckily, this healthy chicken salad sandwich recipe is JUST AS GOOD but it’s much better for you.

It starts with a delicious and HEALTHY chicken salad sandwich recipe. It’s great on these little sliders, but you can also make it as a regular side dish and eat it without the sandwich part. I used Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and that makes ALL the difference in calories. Plus the grapes, almonds, apples, and cranberries add some extra nutrition to this light and fresh recipe.

Easy Chicken Salad Sliders

One of my favorite things about this recipe is how easy it is to make. These sandwiches are whipped up in a flash and are easy to transport for a day at the beach or the pool. They’re perfect for a brunch with the ladies, or to pack in a quick lunch for work.

The secret ingredient to these healthy chicken salad sliders (and my year round obsession) is Greek Yogurt. You cannot go wrong when substituting it for mayo or sour cream in just about any classic recipe. You can even dab some on your quesadillas and you will never know the difference! Its light, delicious, and SO much better for you!

I made mine full of all sorts of add-ons, like grapes, slivered almonds, apple, and craisins, but you can customize this any way you like! You can add your favorites into the mix. I think it would be delicious with celery, pineapple, pecans…the list goes on and on.

Is a chicken salad sandwich good for you?

Usually the answer would be no. But luckily the answer for this recipe is yes! This healthy chicken salad sandwich recipe is a lighter, better for you version of the classic sandwich we all love. Replace the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt to get the same creamy texture without all those calories. And the other ingredients in this chicken salad recipe (grapes, almonds, chicken) are good for you too!
