Greek Chicken Salad Sandwich

Yeah... it's been forever since I blogged. Forever. And I say that every time I blog now. Oh well... po-body's nerfect! (See what I did there?) :)  So, the reason I am blogging right now is because I just made up a recipe and I want to save it to my cooking board on Pinterest, so I thought I would document the recipe here and be able to pin it there!  

Here goes... Greek Chicken Salad Sandwich (or wrap)

The portions for this recipe is for 4 sandwiches or 5 or 6 wraps if you prefer a wrap.

7 oz. chicken breast
4 oz. plain greek yogurt
1/2 small cucumber pureed (about 1/8 cup) 
2 boiled eggs. chopped
1/2 cup of chopped pecans
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Greek seasoning to taste
1 tsp Cummin
1 tsp. Oregano 
1/2 tsp pepper

I mixed the cummin, oregano and pepper together. Sprinkled a light dusting of the mixture on top of the chicken breast. Mine was frozen.  Baked for 30 minutes at 350F.  I flipped the chicken and dusted the other side with the dry rub mixture.  Baked for 10 more minutes.  Ovens may vary. Mine cooks things fast.  Or you could just go out and buy a rotisserie chicken and add these dry ingredients after you have chopped the chicken, but I can't do that in China. :)

While the chicken was cooking, I boiled the eggs and chopped them. Set them aside. I added the pureed cucumber to the plain greek yogurt to make a cucumber sauce.  Play with it, some people like more cucumber than others.  Set aside.  

After the chicken was finished cooking, I chopped it up into small enough pieces for the chicken salad.  I placed the chopped chicken in a bowl and added a thin layer of Greek seasoning on the top.  I added the chopped eggs, chopped pecans, and cucumber sauce.  Mix that up and then add your shredded cheese.  These measurements were good for me because my cucumber sauce was a bit runny.  If yours is more solid, you can add less egg or cheese. These will hold it together. Just make it to the consistency you like.  Also, if you don't want to puree the cucumber, you can just chop it up and add to the yogurt. It's all up to you! Once it's all mixed together, taste test it and if it needs more greek seasoning, by all means add more! I can never get enough of that stuff! If you don't know what it is, you can get it at any super market in the seasonings section.  My mom used it all the time and now I do! It's so good! And especially in this, because it's Greek inspired. :)  

I have only 2 pictures and Stan took these. I meant to take some along the way, but I forgot. :/  

As you can see, we had this on some bread, but I think I might like it better on pita bread or a wrap.  Yum!

Sorry these aren't the kind of pictures I wanted, but thanks to Stan for taking some! Ok, now I can pin it! :)
