Amazing Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe
Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to take the dining room outside. That’s right! This amazing Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe is the best one you will ever try because it’s dressed with a lightened up lemony-dilly dressing.
There are lots of reasons why this one is the best. First, I cubed my chicken instead of shredding it like other salads. Although this sounds meaningless, it really makes a huge difference in flavor and texture.
Have you ever tried those deli versions where you don’t even know where the chicken is? All you can taste is mayo and more mayo. I personally, like to taste my chicken. Big chunks absorb the dressing without overpowering it.
To this Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe, I added red peppers and red onions. It gives it a nice taste, crunch, and also a pop of color. I also added toasted slivers of almond for crunch.
And finally, to round up the savory flavors, I threw in a few raisins to contrast the sweet, sour, and the savory. Perfect harmony.
It took me lots of trials and errors to achieve the perfect Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe but I finally nailed it. Serving the salad inside a freshly baked croissant because the buttery and the flakiness makes a huge difference. Much better than dry regular white, whole wheat, or rye.
For this lightened up version, I used the new Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt because it has half the fat than regular mayo, is delicious, and has 1 gram of protein per serving.
