The Sandwich Chronicles: Chicken Salad

Posted in Food by mcarmen5 on 11/24/2009

Since I’m usually pressed for time, I often aim for low cook or no-cook recipes, and sandwiches are the best.  Though they are practically foolproof and are really easy to make, it’s often the simplest ingredients we forget about.  For that reason, I’m starting the Sandwich Chronicles, where I’ll be chronicling different samples of sandwiches for reference and for fun!

The first is a personal favorite and a classic: the chicken salad.

I just made it this morning and the combination tastes great! Since I don’t have a camera on me right now, my screen cam will have to do.

Ingredients (makes 1):

  • French roll
  • 4 tbsp of chicken salad (chicken salad recipe here)
  • Mayo and Dijon mustard, spread evenly on bread
  • a pinch of alfalfa sprouts
  • a pinch of arugula
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • red onion (paper-thin slice)
  • sliced cheese (I used Monterey Pepper Jack for this one, but Danish Havarti is another favorite)

Super simple, I know, but it tastes so good!

For the ambitious, there’s a delicious herb-roasted chicken salad.
