Chicken Salad Sandwich
Everybody likes to do Chicken Salad differently because we all have our preferred tastes. My chicken salad is not far off from my tuna salad – I always use pickle, onion, celery. For chicken seasoning, tarragon and pepper are simple, but sometimes I like to add a bit of dried dill weed.
Based on a recipe from the DASH eating plan, we use our fresh veggies & favorite seasonings, canned chicken and just 3 T of mayo.
If you’re using fresh chicken or leftover rotisserie chicken, you might want to use a bit more moisture, and replace some of the Mayo with yogurt or sour cream.
I normally like to use lots of parsley and pepper, and usually use 1 Tbsp. of lemon juice. But here’s my mix list:
- large can of chicken
- lemon juice
- onion & garlic powder
- red onion, pickle and celery
- pepper, parsley & tarragon
You could use more fruits and nuts in your chicken salad if that’s your thing:
- diced apple
- halved grapes
- dried cranberries
- slivered almonds
- green onions
- Dijon mustard
As with my canned tuna, I always check for bones first by flaking the chicken with a fork.
Then, just mix the ingredients together until well-blended.
Make sure you build a good and healthy chicken salad sandwich with more greens & veggies on whole grain bread. Or put it in a wrap.
This one has green leaf lettuce & cucumber, but I prefer tomato and lettuce.
I like my grapes on the side.
