I sometimes find it really hard to find lunch options that are healthy, delicious, and not just plain boring.  We found this especially challenging when we did the Whole30 diet last fall.  But when my food options start to get monotonous, I get cranky, so I turned to the kitchen and started playing around to create some new recipes that would keep my life a little more delicious.

One thing I always like to do when I am creating new recipes is to take a basic recipe, like in this case, chicken salad, and try to incorporate some of my favorite flavor combinations into it in a more non-traditional way.  I talked all about how much I love Greek flavors in this post about my homemade Greek Seasoning.  Those flavors turned out to be a match made in heaven for a basic chicken salad.

Homemade Greek Chicken Salad

This recipe is simple enough and just requires a few ingredients to get a really awesome and tasty end result.  If you are using precooked chicken, then the best part is that this only requires a few minutes of chopping to get this from the fridge to the table.

You will start out with your chicken breast. You can use canned, which I have definitely done in a pinch, but fresh chicken will have a better texture and flavor so go for the fresh if you can get your hands on some.  You can cube or shred the chicken.  I like mine shredded, but this is completely a preference thing.

Next chop the celery and grapes so they are in small easy to chew pieces.  Then place the chicken, celery and grapes in a large bowl and top with the mayo, lemon juice, and greek seasoning.  If you are doing the Whole30 diet you will want to use homemade mayo, and this Homemade Greek Seasoning, if not you can use the homemade version (which is to die for!) or pick up a package of Cavendar’s Greek Seasoning at your local grocery store.  It is also pretty tasty but has some extras that are not allowed on the Whole30 diet.  And if you aren’t doing Whole30, I highly recommend adding a big handful to feta cheese to the mixture too.  Yum!

Mix it all together and let it sit in the fridge in an air tight container for  1-2 hours to let the flavors really come together.  Or if you are like me, and not so patient, make a nice lunch and then let the REST of it sit in the fridge for a few hours.

This makes quite a bit and is really great to feed a crowd at a brunch, bridal shower, baby shower or just to fill up your lunchbox for the work week.  We have made this for all of the above!

    You’ve combined two of my favorites!! Greek + Chicken Salad. :) I have been enjoying a Greek Pasta Salad that I made last week — just can’t beat those flavors — and I think this needs to go on my list next. Another good one, Kimber!

    Have a great Easter, my friend!

    Use Cavender’s Greek Seasoning almost daily! So good!
    Eggs, chicken salad, potato salad, vegetables, soup, chicken, meats…they all taste better with Cavender’s!

    Has anyone ever tried substituting greek yogurt for the mayo? I think, especially with the greek seasonings, this would work very well. I may try it this week.

    We made this tonight and it ended up being our dinner instead of lunch for tomorrow! It was so good! Thanks for the recipe.

    I’m leaving on a road trip and need something to get me through the drive. I am going to make this! Amazing sounding and definitely fixes the problem of what to eat while traveling. I think I will add a cup of chopped up pecans for a little crunch. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi – the recipe calls for 2 T of lemon juice. I’m assuming you mix it in with the mayo? The directions don’t say. Thank you :)
