One of my absolute favorite things to make for lunch and/or repast prep for the calendar week is lightened-upwardly chicken salad that’second made alongside Greek yogurt. To be honest, I’thousand non a huge fan of mayo (I know I’thousand crazy) and I really relish the tanginess from Greek yogurt. Here, you lot actually can’t tell a difference. I actually prefer it. With the salty, crispy bacon mixed inwards, it totally feels like an indulgence. Forever one of my favorite element swaps!

I play about alongside dissimilar variations of chicken salad, merely this i was inspired by one of my favorite things: BLT’sec. In the by, I’ve made BLT Grilled Cheeses, too BLT Salmon Burgers. Both SO good. And both are on my site (just totally awful photos, and so feel costless to search from them if y'all’re interested 😂).


But aye. The BLT combo. I tin’t aid it. It’second only and then skillful! Salty bacon, beautiful juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, toasty bread, and normally avocado..because I’thousand clearly in love alongside it, if yous haven’t noticed.


I idea it was fourth dimension for some other version of one of my favorite sandwiches, and this is it! You could for sure swallow this on toasted staff of life, only I love it inwards the lettuce cups.

In the summertime, I commonly attain for the butter lettuce more than frequently than I make toast or a sandwich, because it’s unbelievably beautiful together with so refreshing.


I hateful, why wouldn’t you desire to consume chicken salad stuffed into those beautiful leaves?! Especially chicken salad that’sec studded with bacon. I mean come on.

So this chicken salad. It’sec literally less than ten ingredients for the whole recipe, as well as the chicken salad is just Greek yogurt, dijon, apple cider vinegar, a crush of lemon, garlic powder, table salt, pepper, bacon, and chives. That’second it! And the flavour is un. real.


Basically, these come up together super apace. Especially if you lot purchase a rotisserie chicken from the store in addition to shred it. That style, in that location’s no cooking necessary. I cooked up around chicken breasts I had on mitt together with shredded them, but do what yous gotta do!


Also, the Greek yogurt totally cancels out the bacon. It’s simply math.

This chicken salad volition rest for a few days in the refrigerator, just it’second definitely the best on the beginning solar day, because the bacon stays crispy. If y'all desire to get in ahead, I’d look to add together the bacon until the concluding minute.


Or, if you lot want to meal prep it for the calendar week, but make the chicken salad minus the bacon, as well as proceed everything class, and so mix it together in one case you’re fix to eat!


Because crispy bacon is the best. Can nosotros all hold?
