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

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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


Yum!  It’s a great filling sandwich!

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! :)

Jenn said...

Simple and yummy....my favorite thing!!!

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

Lynda said...

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!

Lyndsey said...

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

busygran said...

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

Big Dude said...

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. :-)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

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.

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.

Betty Ray said...

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. :)

Jean said...

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

Sheila said...

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.

Vrinda said...

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

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

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

Cheers,

Karen said...

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

Bill can make me a sandwich any day!! This looks great. I have never considered what is good in a chicken sandwich before - I think roasted chicken with mango chutney would be nice.

Pam said...

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

Cat said...

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.

Biren said...

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

theUngourmet said...

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.

Pam said...

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!

Chris said...

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.

Pam said...

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

BigBearswife said...

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!

Pam said...

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.
