Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chicken Salad Sandwich

While I was looking for ways to use up my leftover roasted chicken I came across the concept of a chicken salad sandwich. At its base, a chicken salad seems to be shredded cooked chicken mixed with mayonnaise. A lot of recipes also included celery and green onions. I decided to go with a basic sandwich for the first time. The chicken salad sandwich was easy to make and really good! Now that I have had the basic sandwich I am thinking of all sort of possibilities. I could add curry, chutney, herbs, nuts, raisins, cranberries, etc. You could also do a turkey salad sandwich. The possibilities seem to be near endless. I can't wait to roast another chicken so that I can use the leftovers to make more chicken salad sandwiches.

Ingredients:
1 cup chicken (cooked and shredded)
1 stalk celery (chopped)
1 green onion (chopped)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Mix everything but the bread in a bowl.
2. Assemble sandwich.

I love chicken salad with cashews in it. Also grapes - it may sound weird, but it tastes great!

I love this simple and classic style of chicken salad above all others. A great reason to have leftover chicken in the fridge.

can you leave out the green onion and lemon?

Kevin said...

Anonymous You can leave out the green onions and lemon. You could replace the green onions with red if you like.
