What you’ll need to make the Healthy Greek Chicken Salad:

To make the Greek Chicken Salad, you will need:

  • You guessed it- chicken! Leftover cooked chicken breast, or leftover rotisserie chicken are great for this, but if you don’t have any leftover, just bake some chicken breast with salt, pepper and olive oil and cool and cube it!

  • Pepperoncini peppers– straight out of the jar
  • Shallot, or scallions 
  • Fresh parsley 
  • Garlic, minced
  • A little bit of fresh grated cucumber 
  • Crumbled Feta cheese
  • Lemon 
  • Sour cream, or yogurt 
  • Your favorite hummus

Keyword: chicken salad, feta cheese, greek, hummus
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded or cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp Kalamata olives, finely chopped*
  • 2 whole Pepperoncini, finely chopped (stems and seeds removed
  • 1/2 shallot, finely chopped (about a tbsp)*
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated cucumber (wring out to remove excess liquid)) 
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese*
  • the juice of half a lemon 
  • 1/4 cup sour cream*
  • 1/4 cup roasted garlic hummus*
  • 1/8 tsp dried dill
  • salt and pepper, to taste 
  • 1/8 tsp  dried tarragon*
  • sandwich wraps, bread, or lettuce

Instructions

  • Chop or shred the chicken and add to a medium mixing bowl.
    2. Chop olives, pepperoncini, shallot, parsley and mince garlic and add to the bowl with the chicken.
    3. Grate the cucumber, and wring out any excess liquid in a bowl or with your hands, add to the bowl along with other ingredients.
    4. Add the feta, lemon juice, hummus, dried dill, salt, pepper and dried tarragon.
    5. Stir all ingredients until well combined, and serve on bread/wrap/lettuce of choice. I love spinach wraps for this with a little chopped lettuce!

*Notes/Substitutions:

Kalamata olives are ideal here, but Castelvetrano olives could also work here.

If you don’t have shallot, scallions could be subbed in instead for their subtle onion flavor.

I used a Mediterranean blend Feta from Trader Joe’s for this, but any feta you have on hand is great.

You could use Plain or Greek Yogurt in place of the sour cream, or a low fat sour cream for this recipe.

I used roasted garlic hummus for an extra flavor boost, but you could use any hummus you like for this!
