Step 1In a large bowl, combine chicken, onion, red pepper and cilantro.
Step 2In a small bowl, whisk together lemon rind, juice, yogurt and mayonnaise. Stir in feta, if using and pepper. Pour over chicken mixture and stir to combine. Divide among 6 of the bread slices and top with lettuce and remaining bread. Cut in half to serve.
Little chefs can help stir together the salad ingredients and assemble the sandwiches.
This sandwich can be served on whole grain pita pockets or tortillas.
Add more colour and crunch by tucking in chopped cucumbers and tomatoes.
To quickly cook chicken: Bring 2 cups (500 mL) sodium-reduced chicken broth and 1 cup (250 mL) of water to simmer. Add 3 skinless chicken breasts (bone in) and poach for about 15 minutes. Use a digital food thermometer to check that chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Let cool until easy to handle and using fingers remove meat from bones. Tear meat into shreds or chop finely for the recipe. You can also use leftover roast chicken or turkey for this sandwich.
