HEALTHY CHICKEN SALAD SLIDERS are just what Summer ordered. So fun for showers, parties, or any get together. You can eat more than one because the base is greek yogurt…guilt free and delicious!
This recipe was originally published on May 5th, 2014. I decided it needed a facelift! It’s an awesome recipe that never gets old. Muah!
Easy lunches are something in demand year round, and all too often EASY equates to FAST which can equate to UNHEALTHY. It’s way too quick to drive through fast food or throw a lunchable (no? just Pat?) in your bag to take to work than to prepare a healthy meal.
These Healthy Chicken Salad Sliders change all that, and I couldn’t love this recipe more. They’re so tasty, easy, flavorful, and best of all SKINNY! Made with greek yogurt, you can prep the chicken salad the night before and make your sandwiches are you’re running out the door. Win win!
I LOVE chicken salad. My favorite place to go for lunch when I still worked outside of the house was this little bakery that makes the best chicken salad. I always feel guilty eating it, because I guesstimate that it’s probably about 8000 calories per pound! And they served it on grilled beer bread. Man it tastes good. Good thing for us, this recipe tastes just as good, and is healthy!! Like I said…win.
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 (and 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 will never know the difference!) Its light, delicious, and SO much better for you!
I made mine full of all sorts of add-ons, grapes, slivered almonds, apple, and craisins, but you can customize this any way you like! You can add your favorites to the mix. I think it would be delicious with celery, pineapple, pecans…the list goes on and on.
