Lunch on the Go

Recipe: Greek-ish Chicken Flatbread Sandwiches

I try to eat healthy during the day at work. This is something I did the other week for lunch. It was easy to prep and take to work.

Suggestions – If you plan on having chicken one night grilled, throw a couple of extra breasts on the grill and make these the following night. You could even use a rotisserie chicken to make these easier if you want, but I prefer the “grill” flavor.

Greek-ish Grilled Chicken Flatbread Sandwiches
*Makes 5 sandwiches

- 2 chicken breasts, grilled and cubed
o Side note: I actually marinated the chicken in the Greek vinaigrette for about 30 minutes before grilling.
- 5 flatbreads, I used whole wheat
- 6oz plain yogurt
- 1 lemon, juiced
- ¼ teaspoon dried dill
- 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
- splash of white wine vinegar
- 1 medium cucumber
- ¼ medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup grape tomatoes
- 1/8 cup Greek vinaigrette
- ½ cup crumbled feta


1. Grill your chicken until it’s no longer pink and juices run clear. About 12-15 minutes depending on the level of heat on your grill and the thickness of the breast. Remove when cooked thoroughly, allow to cool, and cut into cubes.

2. Make the yogurt sauce by mixing yogurt, dill, capers, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, and pepper. Set aside.

3. Remove the skin and slice cucumber in to half moons and slice grape tomatoes in half. Add thinly sliced red onion and Greek vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.

4. Assemble the sandwich and enjoy.

Thoughts: This sandwich is nothing fancy or unique, but it is tasty and healthy. Well, I consider it healthy for me anyway. The yogurt sauce has a nice tang of acidity and the veggies stay crisp for a nice texture. This would be an easy sandwich to assemble and take for tailgating as a nice alternative to burgers and hot dogs.
