Opa! Chicken Sandwich

Comment 1 Standard

So Costco has this awesome Kirkland chunk chicken in an 8 oz can.  Of course you get like 6 of them when you buy them, so I wanted to get some different recipes.

This is one of my favorites!  You can either do it as a “scramble” like shown in my picture, or you can make patties out of it.  When I’m in a hurry I just do three scoops (I use my ice cream scooper which is 1/4 cup) with a table spoon of oil, crisp it up, and it’s all good!

I use Joseph brand flat bread which is out of this world!  I get it from Walmart, and it is by the deli counter.  2 points each and worth it!

This is my go to dish when I have nothing in the house.  I try to make it up a head of time so it’s ready to cook.  It is so filling.  I mean I am STUFFED when I eat this and it’s so mouth-wateringly flavorful that I am completely satisfied when I eat it!

Opa! Chicken Sandwich – 5-6 points

1 8 oz can Kirkland Chunk Chicken

1 Green Pepper (diced)

1 Small White Onion (diced)

1 Egg

1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1 Tablespoon Wildtree Opa! Seasoning (or Greek seasoning found at your grocery store)

Grapeseed Oil (I use garlic infused)

Tzatziki Seasoning

1 Cup Greek Yogurt (Plain, Non-Fat)

1/2 cucumber (seeded and grated)

1 Tablespoon Wildtree Tzatziki Seasoning (or brand found at your grocery store)

Garnish:

Tomatoes

Lettuce

1 Joseph Whole Wheat Flat Bread

Directions:

Combined all the ingredients for the Tzatziki dip and put in a  container.  Let the dip sit at least an hour in the refrigerator before serving.

Saute onions and peppers for 3 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

Break up canned chicken with a fork, and mix in Opa! seasoning, egg, bread crumbs, and the cooled peppers.  Let sit in the refrigerator for at least a half an hour.

If you make patties out of this mixture they are one point each.  Heat pan with 1 tablespoon of oil.  Form 9 patties from mixture, cooking 3-4 minutes on each side to make sure they are cooked through.  Each patty is one point.  They aren’t near as good reheated, so I do mine the scrambled way most of the time.

If going for the scramble, heat one teaspoon of oil and add the amount of chicken you would like – 3/4 cup is perfect for the Joseph wrap.  Crisp it up until cooked through and add to your flatbread with your choice of garnishes.

The Tzatziki dip is free for 2 tablespoons or 1 point for 3.  I love it so I usually take the hit and have 3 tablespoons!

Sometimes I use Wildtree seasonings in my recipes.  I always try to put a substitute for them, but if you would like to try Wildtree check out my Wildtree site!
