Healthy Dill Chicken Salad Recipe

Greek yogurt lightens up this classic chicken salad. Use fresh dill if you have it on hand, but the dried version will work, too. If you go with fresh, be sure to add more since the flavor isn’t as concentrated. This is also a great use for leftover cooked chicken, especially when you can’t quite finish that rotisserie chicken. Did I mention this just takes a couple minutes to mix up?
Serves 2-3


  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I like to use rotisserie for the texture, especially with leftovers after having it for a quick meal)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, like Oikos (don’t sub plain regular yogurt because it won’t be thick enough unless you know how to strain it)
  • 1 celery stalk, cleaned and chopped small
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise (light, plain, canola-oil based…any type will do)
  • 12 tsp dried dill (depending on how strong you want the dill flavor – use fresh if you have it available, though you may need more if you use fresh)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt, mayonnaise, dill, salt and pepper until evenly combined.
  2. Add chicken and celery, and stir till sauce is well-distributed.
  3. Serve on good, whole grain bread or on top of a bed of greens.


Note: Recipe easily multiplies to serve more
