Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken such as rotisserie
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cucumber grated, and liquid squeezed out with a clean towel
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped herbs parsley, mint, chives, scallions, and/or dill
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
  • Serve chicken salad in pita bread, in lettuce wraps, or on crackers/toast.

Notes

  • Make ahead/storage: Make this in bulk and take it for lunch all week- stays good in the fridge for 3-5 days! Give it a stir to mix it up a bit before servings, since the yogurt will separate a bit.
  • For a dairy-free version, use mayo instead of yogurt, or a dairy free yogurt substitute.
  • To save time, use leftover tzatziki sauce or store-bought tzatiziki, by mixing about a cup of it with the chicken and seasoning to taste.
