Lightened Up Chicken Salad Sandwich

Quick and easy Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe made with grilled chicken, Greek yogurt and fresh fruit and vegetables served on ciabatta rolls.

It is hard to beat a perfectly chicken salad sandwich, that is until you take it to the next level with some amazing flavor combinations.  This sandwich is easy to prepare and take a few minutes to make. This recipe is great for hot summer days when the oven shouldn’t be turned on.  It’s cool, refreshing and will become a family favorite.

Lately, I’ve been making recipes that take little time to prepare yet pack a lot of flavor.  By using Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets from Walmart, I can have dinner on the table in minutes without the hassle or turning on the oven on an already hot night.  The chicken is delicious, fully cooked with a great grilled taste and made with white meat and is 100% all natural. There are countless recipes to pair it with.

Summer is a great time to make this lightened-up recipe with plenty of fresh vegetables and grilled chicken.  For this recipe, I’ve used green onions, red onions, green apple, red grapes, avocado slices, chopped pecans, Greek yogurt, a little mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice and Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets.

I think I have a new record time for making dinner at about 10 minutes.  The chicken used in this recipe is already cooked and just needs to be reheated in the microwave for a few minutes.  It’s easy to prepare and allows me time to chop up the other ingredients.  What I love about this chicken is that it is grilled and already cooked.  The grilled flavor really stands out in the sandwich.

Summer is a great time lighten-up traditional recipes.  I like using a lot vegetables and fruits when cooking for added health benefits.  Substituting an ingredient or two for a healthier option is ideal.  For this recipe, I’ve greatly reduced the amount of mayo used and instead used Greek yogurt.  The flavor is more light, refreshing and idea for summer.  By using flavorful grilled chicken, I haven’t sacrificed the flavor at all.

Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Sandwich

To make this recipe, start by washing and chopping up the vegetables and fruits.  Place 3-4 pieces of  Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Fillets in the microwave and cook according to package directions.

In a medium bowl, whisk Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise and fresh lemon juice together.  Add chopped nuts, fruit and vegetables to the bowl.  Once the chicken fillets are done, chopped the chicken and toss in the bowl.  Fold ingredients together until fully incorporated. Microwave California Style Birds Eye Steamfresh® Protein Blends according to package directions.  Scoop chicken salad mixture onto 4 ciabatta rolls.
