My Favorite Chicken Salad Sandwich!

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast, but it may be slipping fast after eating this great sandwich for lunch!

 I can make chicken salad myself but I’ve come to the conclusion that what really makes Bill’s chicken salad sandwiches so good is that he dices the chicken into larger pieces than I normally do.  But then, there’s something else ~ he uses MAYONNAISE!  If you’ve read a few of my posts, you know I’m a Miracle Whip kind of girl.  I forgive him though as he makes a great hearty delicious chicken salad sandwich!

Here’s his recipe:

Bill’s Chicken Salad Sandwich


1 cup chicken breast, roasted and diced
½ cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons pickle relish
¼ teaspoon each, salt and pepper
Your favorite bread, toasted


In a mixing bowl, add first 5 ingredients.
Toss gently until well combined.
Assemble the sandwich.

Yum!  It’s a great filling sandwich!

Don’t forget to enter my give-away posted on July 20th!       Here's the link: 


  1. I LOOOVE chicken salad!!!! My husband and I have a fight about miracle whip and mayo all the time. He is 100% Dukes all the time and I love miracle whip. I have to admit though on certain things he is right...mayo is better. I think chicken salad is one of them. I also like celery, grapes and apples or raisins in mine sometimes! :)

  2. Simple and favorite thing!!!

  3. Thanks Pam you have given me an idea for a meal tonight. We have been eating far too much and this will be just right. Diane

  4. I love chicken salad. I used to use Miricle Whip in my salad, but a few years ago I switched to Mayo-guess my tastes changed.
    I also like to add grapes and pecans; so yummy!

  5. Way to go Bill! Nothing like mayo when making chicken salad! Great looking sandwich there!

  6. A great way to make a sandwich! And I love mayo!

  7. Expert opinions aside, my favorite meal is breakfast and I'm a big fan of chicken salad so I have to believe this chicken salad sandwich would make a fine breakfast. :-)

  8. Thanks so much for stopping by. I love new visitors. I make my chicken salad with mayo, too. My dad always wanted Miracle Whip when I was growing up and then my husband was using mayo and I am hooked.

  9. Besides the great ingredients, I think Bill's sandwich tastes so great is because he puts a lot of love into it. I love it when my husband does the cooking. I am going to give him Bill's recipe and have him whip us up some of the sandwiches on Saturday.

  10. Oh, this is so timely. Gonna make chix salad tonight with some leftover store-made chicken. Yours looks delicious. I like carmelized onions in mine, and I'm sorry, but it's got to be mayo. Although I have fond memories of Miracle Whip from living with my grandparents. :)

  11. That sounds and looks delicious, especially with the toasted bread. It makes ordinary sandwiches seem really boring, I must try it !!

  12. Bill's Chicken Salad Sandwich sounds delicious! I use only Hellmann's mayo and I usually add boiled eggs and finely diced onion and celery. We love chicken salad sandwiches but for some reason I don't make them very often. Thanks for the reminder.

  13. Thanx for visiting our blog..simple n lovely sandwich

  14. Okay, okay - I LOVE chicken salad too. Let's just say I kind of love food. sandie

  15. Nothing beats a good chicken salad sandwich...Mayo is best!

  16. I'd have a bite from that gorgeous sandwich anytime! Mayonnaise and chicken go so well together!



  17. Pam, this chicken salad sounds delicious!! What kind of pickle relish... dill or sweet? (Is that a dumb question?)

  28. Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle, all of your additions sound great! My Mom always added grapes, loved it! Thanks!

    Jenn, pretty simple and it works! Glad you stopped by!

    Kim @ Savvy Southern Style, funny how we change! Thanks for the visit!

    Linda, I'm sure that's why it's good, all the love! Hope you get the sandwich Saturday!

    Betty Ray, the caramelized onions sound good. That's a new one for me and will have to try it! Thanks!

    Jean, that's definitely what Bill says, have to have a sandwich on toasted bread!

    Guna's kitchen, thank you! I will be checking yours out shortly!

    Cakelaw, come on over! Chutney would be interesting with it! Yum!

  29. Can you believe I have never had a chicken salad sandwich ? It's something that has to do with its appearance that has stopped me from doing so.

  30. This sounds delish. It is no wonder you love it. Best of all prepared by that someone special!

  31. My sister is a Miracle Whip girl but I usually prefer mayo. Your husband makes a mean chicken sandwich. :)

    I just posted an Asian chicken sandwich with wasabi that's pretty tasty too. I also like mine with apples and celery.

  32. Cat: yes, I can believe it. I feel the same about some foods! Thanks for the visit!

    Biren, you got it! It's about all the love! Thanks!

    theUngourmet, he says thanks! Apples and celery works for me. Your chicken post cracked me up!

  33. I like my chicken salads more "plain" like that. I do not like grapes, walnuts, and stuff in mine. I guess that's because my mom made it basic when I was a kid.

  34. Chris, same here for the "plain." Sometimes you have to go with the basics! Have a good day!

  35. im so glad you posted this recipe. I love chicken salad! My favorite was from a place called Schoolfield Lunch. They were opened from 1912 until march of 2010. They had the best chicken salad sandwich ever. Cute little place, could maybe hold about 40 people. Lunch counter. oo sorry I started to ramble. Yours sounds wonderful!

  36. BigBearswife, very interesting! I love the way some foods brings back great memories! It must have been a great place since it was open for so long. I worked one time with a similar place nearby, very tiny, and the lady made such great sandwiches. I often wonder what happened to her after it closed.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
