Last week I made my usual Friday stop at Starbucks and saw that they now have a BLT Chicken Salad Sandwich. How have I never thought to add bacon, lettuce, and tomato to chicken salad??
BLT Chicken Salad Sandwiches
- 3 cups shredded/diced chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)
- 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of low-fat mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1 tomato – diced
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 6–8 strips of cooked turkey bacon – crumbled
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add chicken, yogurt and mayo together in a bowl and mix. Add poultry seasoning, lettuce, tomato, and bacon. Continue to mix together. Add salt and pepper and mix one final time.
Now you could continue to try and eat healthy and serve it on wheat bread but I prefer potato rolls. Those are my favorite and since I feel like I cut calories with the greek yogurt and turkey bacon, why not splurge on the bread:)
Definitely my new favorite way to eat chicken salad.
And later in the afternoon we were going to a friends house for a cookout so I decided to take the leftovers along as a dip. I served it with crackers and it was just as good.
Now, I can’t decide what I like better!
This sounds like a yummy Summer Sandwich!! I pinned for later! 🙂
Yum, yum…. two of my favorite sandwiches, chicken salad and BLT combined! Pinned!

Could you use miracle whip
I found your recipe on orgjunkie.com. I got a gift of lots of lovely tomatoes from a neighbour and would have normally BLTed myself to death, except I don’t eat bread anymore. Instead, I’m going to live off this salad for the next few days. 🙂 I’m allergic to eggs, so I just added more yoghurt instead of doing mayo and I also added some crumbled feta cheese. It was salty enough by that point to skip the poultry seasoning, so I added dried basil and oregano. Very yum, thanks for the inspiration!
Any idea as to the nutritional value? Serving size?
My fiancé made this and it is awesome. I normally HATE chicken salad and he almost had to force me to try this but once I did I ate 2 sandwiches! He added some BBQ sauce so it was like a BBQ BLT 🙂
These chicken salas sandwich really look yummy!
