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!
I can’t wait for you to try this delicious, easy, flavor-packed, HEALTHY chicken salad sandwich recipe. You’ll be amazed by how good it is, and even more amazed by the fact that you can eat it guilt-free. Make one for lunch or make a bunch to bring to a party.
Serve them up with a side of sweet potato chips, fresh fruit, or with a bowl of tomato soup.

I have always disliked mayo AND miracle whip so I’ve been making my chicken salad like this ( or various versions, but always using yogurt as a binder). Everyone who’s ever eaten it loves it. Healthy and delicious. So glad others are catching on! My other favorite trick is using avocado in the same way for a more savory chicken or tuna salad! Tuna, red onion, lemon juice, mashed avocado are the base, then just let your imagination run wild with add ins. Current favorite for me is walnuts and almonds- I’m adding them to everything!
Thanks for sharing, Karen!
I wonder how it taste
These look terrific. I’m hosting a baby shower next weekend, and they’ll be a perfect addition. I’ve also linked to them on my blog’s healthy recipes weekend roundup. Delicious!
Aw thank you so much Kristi! So sweet of you. Hope you love them!
Thanks for the recipe! The only think I would change is to prepare my own chicken–Rotisserie Chicken (store bought) is not very healthy for you–super high in sodium and pumped with animal antibiotics…so many easy ways to prepare chicken in a much healthier way.
That’s a really good point. I’m still learning all the time, and I’m sure you’re right! Thanks for stopping by!!
I just made this and was wondering if you knew how long it wold stay good in the fridge?
With the yogurt I would think 2 or 3 days tops. I did have mine the next day and it was totally fine. Hope you love it! Thanks for stopping by :)
Just ate it and I love it! Thank you for the information!
I think this chicken recipe sounds so good~it’s awesome.
Thank-You so much for this recipe.
Thanks so much Sally! You’re always so sweet :)
Isn’t Greek yogurt amazing! Chicken Salad is one my favorites but I haven’t eaten it for a while because I don’t eat mayonnaise anymore. Sometime in the near future I’m going to try out this recipe. Pinning now :)
Yes!! I’m totally obsessed and always have it on hand. Hope you love the recipe if you try it! :) Thanks for stopping by
I made these tonight and they were an absolute hit. I changed the recipe a little bit and used peanuts instead of almonds and dried Thompson raisins instead of grapes. It was easy to make and delicious. I will definitely make it again. Thank-you!
Ahhhhh this chicken salad looks amazing!!!! On my list to make soon!
These look super yummy, filling AND healthy! I’m excited to try them!
