Mediterranean Chicken Salad


  • 1 1/2 lbs. Gerber's CARE Certified chicken breasts (about 3 cups)
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1/4 cup Heinen's Kalamata olives, halved
  • 1/4 cup Heinen's roasted red peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Heinen's crumbled feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Heinen's honey
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Heinen’s paprika
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • 3 tsps. fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. In a large baking dish, arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer.
  3. Evenly brush both sides with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
  5. Remove the chicken from the oven when cooked through and let rest until cooled. Shred the chicken and add it to a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add the celery, olives, roasted red peppers, red onion and feta cheese. Mix well.
  7. Add the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, honey, lemon juice and paprika. Mix well.
  8. Stir in the green onions, dill and parsley.
  9. Serve the chicken salad on a bed of greens, in a lettuce wrap, in a bowl with fresh parsley as a garnish or on a sandwich. Refrigerate the remaining chicken salad in a sealed container for up to three days.

Note: Save time by using a Heinen’s rotisserie chicken.
