There are many chicken salad sandwich recipes.
I love a delicious sandwich for lunch and this home cooked chicken salad sandwich recipe is definitely one of my favorites.
This simple timesaving meal in-a-flesh can be created using basic ingredients that anyone has in their fridge: cooked chicken, scallions, celery, red pepper, almonds, mayonnaise, plain Greek yogurt, bread and seasonings. All of them go perfect together.
Basic chicken salad sandwich recipe is what you have to know anyway.
Savory chopped chicken mixed with creamy tangy mayonnaise and yogurt drizzled with lemon juice (you can add a little yellow mustard to get more savory taste), crunchy celery and peppers. Almonds also add delicious nutty flavor to the salad that you can’t go wrong with. All served on a carb comforting multigrain bread and make for an irresistible chicken salad sandwich.
I like to part my mayonnaise with greek yogurt just for a more delicate but complex dressing flavor and velvety texture. And also to get more nutritious benefits. It pairs great with savory chicken. But you can use only mayonnaise or fat free yogurt. Yogurt is better for healthy chicken salad sandwich recipe.
You can absolutely cook your own chicken but I usually just use rotisserie or leftover. It just makes this dish super quick and easy to make. The choice of bread is solely up to you: my daughter likes it on a simple white, by husband prefers baguette but I love a hearty multigrain bread.
This is a great make-ahead option, it holds great in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just put it together in the beginning of the week for a convenient lunch when you are pressed for time.
This dish is also very cost conscious but very tasty, no fancy ingredients to spend money on but the result is mouthwatering.
