The Secret Recipe Club (secretly) pairs bloggers up with each other every month. We can pick ANY recipe that our assigned blogger has ever made, take it and try to make it ourselves. Everyone reveals their partner and the recipe on the same day so we can all see what has been made! This is now the fifth month I’ve participated and I love it. It’s a great way to meet new bloggers, try new recipes, and get others to try yours too!
This month, I was given the assignment to try a recipe from Christy who is the beautiful and amazing woman behind the blog Life of a Modern Housewife. Christy started her blog after moving to South Carolina all the way from Texas when she went from a full time job to becoming a housewife. I loved looking through Christy’s recipes, “Motivational Mondays”, and stories about her princess pup Sadie Mae (not to be confused with my very own princess pup Stella May!).
After searching through so many fun recipes, I decided to go with Christy’s Tzatziki Chicken Salad because I thought it was so creative. I never would have thought to make a Chicken Salad this way, but I’m so glad I did. It’s delicious. Instead of eating the chicken salad with pita chips, I wanted to put together a nice sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and a slice of Havarti Cheese on a toasted Wheat Bun. Dave and I devoured this chicken salad sandy for dinner and even for lunch over salad the next day. YUM!
Tzatziki Chicken Salad Sandwiches
1 (6oz) container Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt
Fresh Lemon Juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp dried Dill (or use 2 tsp fresh!)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Cucumber, seeded and shredded with a grater
1 Garlic Clove, minced
1/2 Jalapeno, seeded and finely diced (optional)
4 Chicken Breasts- cooked then shredded (I boiled mine first)
Combine all ingredients into a bowl (except the chicken) and stir with a whisk. Add chicken, toss to coat. Serve on a whole wheat bun, in a wrap, over salad, with pita chips, or whatever you’d like!
Recipe slightly adapted from: Life of a Modern Housewife
This recipe was obviously very easy, but it was such a refreshing spin on your normal boring old chicken salad. I left the onions out because I’m not a huge fan of raw onions (especially for lunch at work!) and also used more chicken so it wasn’t too creamy/saucy. I was excited too, since this was a healthy recipe that Christy found from Cooking Light.
