Cottage Cheese Chicken Salad Sandwich

This Cottage Cheese Chicken Salad sandwich is made with cooked chicken, cottage cheese, a little bit of mayo, and grapes. The use of cottage cheese makes it healthier than traditional chicken salad, and it's an easy make-ahead lunch recipe that's loaded with protein.

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 lb. whole milk cottage cheese* 16 oz.
  • 3 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 cup red grapes sliced
  • 1/2 cup celery thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoon sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 slices bread**


  • Cook chicken as you normally would. I like to boil mine in a large pot for 20 minutes or so. Then, use two forks to shred the chicken and place it into the bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until the chicken is completely coated.
  • Eat it as-is or in between two slices of bread and enjoy!


*You can use any kind of cottage cheese -- whole milk, low fat, etc. 
**Or more, depending on how many sandwiches you want to make
