Best Ever Chicken Salad Sandwiches

chicken_salad_sandwiches_1

I had never tried chicken salad sandwiches until I was 21 years old. I’m not even sure if I knew there was such thing until then. Growing up, my mom never made it, so I never ate it. The first time I tried chicken salad was when my roommate in college made them using this recipe. I was hooked! I’ve made them several times since then and everyone I have ever made these for feels the same way- they are simply delicious! These sandwiches are perfect for a warm, summer day, but here in my home we love them so much I make them year-round. They are great party foods, or simple dinners for your family. Here is how to make them:

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb cooked chicken, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 1/4 cup red grapes, halved
  • 3/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup salted cashew pieces
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to make it:

  1. Place all ingredients into bowl. Stir until just mixed.
  2. Cover and chill for at least two hours.
  3. Serve on croissants or your favorite bread.

The hardest part about this recipe is waiting the 2 hours for your chicken salad to chill! I always want to dive into it right away!

ENJOY!

    Sounds delicious! Similar to my regular chicken salad, but the pineapple sounds like a great addition, and I use english walnuts. I am going to have to try this! We love chicken salad for a light summer evening meal, we don’t even need the bread with it!

    I make something similar except I’ve never put pineapple in it. Sounds yummy so I’m going to add it the next time. Perfect summer lunch!!
