The chicken salad can be done in plenty of different ways according to personal taste – you can combine chicken with onions, nuts or even sweet fruits for a mouthful of rich flavor.

There is simply no such thing as “the best recipe“ for this packable delicious meal, but we’ll provide you with our favorite one – an easy-to-prepare high-protein variant that will keep you full and happy throughout the day!


  • 450 grams of cooked and shredded chicken meat (cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken)
  • 6 lettuce leaves
  • 60 grams of diced red onion
  • 70 grams of diced apple
  • 100 grams of halved grapes
  • 160 grams of plain Greek yogurt with 2% fat
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • salt and pepper (optional)
  • 12 slices of whole grain bread (optional)


Mix all of the ingredients well in a big bowl and you’re good to go!

If you’re on a low-carb diet, replace the bread with a side salad. But if you want to increase the caloric value, you can add 1/3 cup of dried cranberries or 1/2 cup of chopped almonds for an increase in calorie, protein and healthy fats.
