This Rotisserie Chicken Salad is healthier than most, without sacrificing a bit of flavor. The flavor is robust and delicious, and even non-chicken salad eaters will be going back for seconds!



  • 7 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup whole plain yogurt (Greek is great)
  • 1/2 cup real mayo
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional: chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Gently fold with rubber spatula until all ingredients are well incorporated. Cover and chill in fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Serve with crusty bread, crackers, or in a sandwich. It’s also delicious over a green salad, if you’re looking to cut down on carbs. Keeps well when covered and chilled for several days.


Most chicken salads use quite a bit of mayo and sour cream. We “healthified” this recipe by using mostly yogurt and cutting the mayo in half. We still recommend the flavor of whole mayo for 1/2 cup amount, but if you prefer, you can use lowfat.
