You’ll be surprised by this recipe too because it has no mayo in it, we use greek yogurt instead to make it a bit more healthy! I love the tanginess of the yogurt, I think it’s perfect for tying all these flavors together into one delicious sandwich!

My boys usually aren’t huge chicken salad sandwich eaters, but they love this one. Sometimes we throw in some grapes or nuts to give it a little different flavor or texture but my favorite way to eat it is just like this recipe shows you!

We’ve made this recipe super quick and easy by using can chicken, you can find it in the same aisle as the tuna. The cans are a bit larger too so be on the lookout for it!
