Tzatziki Chicken Salad Sandwich

While shopping this past week, I ended up buying a bunch of fresh dill. I’ve been wanting to incorporate dill into some of my recipes. Dill has this citrus, and maybe slightly sour aspect to it, and personally, I love it. I’ve tried growing it in my garden in the past, and it has never blossomed the way I wanted. I’ll admit that I have somewhat of a green thumb, but have failed when it comes to dill. Regardless, I can now get some fresh dill, and I’m fine with that.

So, I decided to make a batch of tzatziki sauce. If you have never had tzatziki sauce, well, it is a must! I made a batch, only to be used for my Grecian lamb and grilled cheese sandwich (It was amazing). However, I had plenty of leftover tzatziki sauce. It was last Sunday, and after looking in my refrigerator, I also noticed I had some leftover chicken that I had roasted the previous night. That’s when I thought of making a tzatziki chicken salad sandwich!

Tzatziki Chicken Salad Sandwich

Let’s get started.


  • 2 cups of cooked chicken, chopped or shredded
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 ribs of celery, diced
  • 2 slices of rustic French loaf, about 1/2 inch thick, lightly toasted
  • 1/2 cup tzatziki sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 thin slice of provolone cheese, optional

Ingredients for the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeds removed, and diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated using a microplane
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste

Make the tzatziki sauce by adding all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl, and stir to combine.


Mix all of the chicken salad ingredients, with the exception of the bread, into a small mixing bowl.

Take one of your toasted pieces of bread, and add the thin slice of provolone cheese. Generously mound some of the chicken salad onto the bread.

Top with the remaining slice, and slice on the diagonal prior to serving.

As you typically think of using mayonnaise in a chicken salad sandwich, the tzatziki sauce gives this an awesome surprise. Personally, I think the sauce with the cucumbers, dill, garlic, and yogurt really make this a better sandwich. You let me know what you think, as I thought this was a real winner.

Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
