Recipe: Light and tasty Chicken Salad

Kim asked me yesterday if I would share the  super-tasty, very easy Chicken Salad recipe with you that I had mentioned in my post. I most certainly would! Here it is:



2 chicken breasts – cooked and cubed

3 celery sticks – sliced

1 (gala) apple – diced

1 handful of walnuts – crushed

1 handful of craisins

6 tbs of plain, non-fat yogurt

2 tbs of mayonnaise

pepper, salt (to taste)


Mix the ingredients in a bowl and just add some lettuce and a slice of tomato to make a very tasty, easy sandwich with fresh sourdough bread.

The yogurt makes the dressing really fresh and light and the celery, apples, and walnuts give the salad a nice crunch.
Chicken Salad Sandwich has become my go-to meal if I don’t feel like cooking. I am sure it’ll be even more popular around our house in the summer, when we don’t want to turn on the oven at all.

Give it a try. I am sure you’ll love it as much as I do.
It’s so simple and quick to make.

  1. Perfect! This looks really yummy! My dad, for God only knows what reason, has recently decided that I know how to cook (why?? how?? WHAT?!) and so whenever I go home, he expects that I make something new for him to try… This is what he will get for Easter! Ha! :)

  2. Yummy! I have to try adding some cranberries to mine. Sounds delicious!

  3. uh yay. that you! i’ll have to leave out the celery (and craisins – don’t think i can get them here) but other than that, sounds delish! xoxo

  4. mmh…looks so delicious!! I love chicken salad sandwiches!! And my hubby really missed Fleischsalat here! haha
    Happy Thursday!! xxx

  5. Oh my goodness, I NEED THAT BREAD! I’m a carb monster, and sourdough is my biggest weakness. This looks delish! :)

  6. I shouldnt look at your blog while at work. darn I am hungry now!!!!!

  7. Mmmmmmm, this sounds absolutely DELICIOUS! I wish I had some chicken cooked up right now to whip this up! ;)

  8. YUMMM! Seriously I’m going to have to try this!

  9. It sounds great! I should try it sometime, maybe to get out the chicken cutlet and muenster cheese sandwich I’m in…

  10. This looks SO DELICIOUS. I hate mayonnaise but I bet when it’s mixed with yogurt, you hardly even taste it.
