Greek Yoghurt Chicken Salad



School holidays are an excellent time to try out new lunch box recipes with the kids.  If they totally hate it I can make them something quick and easy like a Vegemite Sandwich so they don’t starve, and if they like it…Bonus!!  And if Mr8 and I like it, Double Bonus!  This one is rated a Love from me because at the moment my girls and I don’t seem to be able to get enough of Craisins.  We love them.  Just yesterday I went to do some baking and found an empty packet.  I put them in everything from muesli bars to biscuits to, well, apparently salads.  You can make the chicken and craisin filling in advance and keep it in the fridge for quick lunches on the go, picnics and lunch boxes.

Greek Yoghurt Chicken Salad


2 Cups Cooked Chicken, chopped

1/4 Cup Diced Celery

1/4 Cup Dried Craisins

1/4 Cup Plain, Greek Yoghurt

1 Tbl Mayonnaise

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Pepper

Salad fillings of your choice


Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.

Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to combine.

Serve with salad in a wrap or sandwich, or serve on a salad with crackers.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
