Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I love chicken and it's one of the few meats I'll eat. But, sometime I feel like we do the same thing thing with chicken over and over. I wanted something that was easy and required little to no oven or stove time. While perusing Pinterest I came across a chicken salad recipe that looked like it fit my requirements.

Chicken Salad
2 - 12.5 oz cans of chicken (I had chicken breast I needed to cook, so I boiled three breasts until they were no longer pink in the center; after the chicken had cooled I cut the breast into cubes; a rotisserie chicken from your local grocer would also work well)
3/4 cup mayo (to reduce the fat/cal content I used light mayo; instead of using a full 3/4 cups I used 1/2 cup mayo and 1/4 cup skim milk)
1 cup seedless red grapes, halved
1 green onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1/2 cup diced apples (I used a Gala)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp sugar (this wasn't in the original recipe, but in another chicken salad recipe I have sugar is used and makes the dressing taste great)
pecans or cashews, optional

In a bowl combine mayo (and milk if you're using it), salt, pepper, and sugar; mix well.
Add grapes, onion, celery, apples and chicken to mayo mixture; mix until well blended.
Serve on a large croissant roll with a slice of lettuce.

Serve with some fresh veggies and enjoy!

  1. Thanks!! Usually the lighting in my kitchen doesn't cooperate with me - especially in the evenings when I'm making dinner. I had to take advantage of the afternoon sunshine!!
