This was a pretty good and different recipe for a chicken salad. The Greek yogurt really gave it a different flavor and brought out the spices of cumin and cilantro. The lemon was a little strong for my taste, but I'm not a fan of lemon in the first place. It was a little bland, but had a good flavor overall. It was filling though, all I had was a clementine on the side and had enough energy to last until dinner.

Excellent recipe! Made this for my extended family and all enjoyed, including kids. I used brown cow plain fat free yogurt and added a little sour cream.

I agree with MelMazz. This dish was very bland. I followed the recipe exactly. It needed something to give it some punch.

This really is an outstanding recipe. I've made it several times and have always been impressed with the combination of flavors and how easy it is to make. I generally omit the tomato but otherwise follow the recipe. This one goes great with any off-dry white.

This is absolutely delicious and only gets better with time. The flavors are perfect and blend wonderfully. There is a perfect amount (for me) of spice--the flavors linger which is a good thing! Yummy and a great lunch to take to work--just don't fill the pitas before you are ready to eat!

This was just ok..I thought that it tasted too much like yogurt,and was missing something as well. I don't think that I will make this again

Awesome, use the Greek Yogurt dressing all the time, makes chicken so good.

This recipe is very good! It's a great alternative to the regular packed lunch. Our store only had 6oz containers of Greek yogurt, which worked fine. Next time, I might also change the lemon juice to lime. It's just a personal preference. I also like that so salt was needed. Enough came from the olives. I'm not sure why people thought it was bland. Perhaps they didn't add enough red pepper flakes?

I was really pleased with this combo of flavors. I have a picky 9 year old who doesn't like fruit, which many chicken salads contain. This was perfect. I substituted cannellini beans since I was out of garbanzos (have made since with though), chopped green onions instead of red, & added more cumin plus a bit of dried oregano. I also add a finely diced cucumber (peeled & seeded) for a bit more crunch & to stretch the servings. Good fresh, even better the next day. Served with hummus & fresh veggies.

Too many beans, not enough tomato.

had this for dinner, it was great, we added apples, and instead of pita we used lettuce, will make this again :)

Cut the chickpeas in half. Use pitted black olives and capers instead of green olives. Add some crushed garlic and hot pepper flakes. THis will wake it up and it's delicious
