2 tbsp basil and garlic infused oil (any oil is fine)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts - cut into bite size pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 to 3/4 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 cucumber chopped
1/2 block crumbling feta cheese
1/2 cup Greek salad dressing
Mediterranean Herb Hummus
Pita Pockets/Sandwich Thins
*Here is where you can get creative; if you like red onion, olives, artichokes (I totally forgot to use mine!) tomatoes, absolutely add them in! If you prefer green bell peppers instead of red, use them. You can replace the Greek salad dressing for Greek yogurt, Tzatziki sauce or even mayonnaise. Chop the veggies based on whether you like chunky pieces or not, use whatever kind of bread and hummus you want, it's all about what you like!
I started by cooking the chicken and bell peppers together in the oil. As you'll be able to see, I like my salads chunky. I lightly salted and peppered it because I knew the other ingredients would add a lot of flavor on their own. When those were finished cooking I threw them into a large mixing bowl.
At this point add in the rest of your veggies and cheese and toss in your sauce. If you add more veggies adjust your sauce accordingly. Also if you add mayo to make it creamy like a normal chicken salad you may want to omit the hummus as that's where my creaminess comes from. You can even stir in hummus as your sauce if you choose to do that. The possibilities are literally endless.
I used sandwich thins because I couldn't find pita pockets but I like the idea of this sandwich in a pita pocket or even pita bread cut in half to make a sandwich. I toasted my bread and spread my hummus on each side.
The completed sandwich
This recipe makes a ton of salad so you can refrigerate and keep it to eat for the rest of the week. I honestly wasn't too sure how this would turn out but I loved it, it was sooo good and pretty healthy as well.
Let me know in the comments if you make a variation of this or what your favorite sandwich recipe is for summer!
