This Chicken Salad Sandwich reminds me of one that I used order from a deli whenever I was nearby for business. You know, way back when I used to wear something besides yoga pants and my Uggs all day.

Anyway, this little deli had only two or three booths / tables inside, which was fine since most everyone would just pick up their soup, salad, or sandwiches. From time to time I’d order something different just to see if I loved anything as much or more as this sandwich and with one bite, I’d always regret it.

Their chicken salad sandwich was simply amazing. So, one day when I was eating my poppy seed chicken dip, I realized it reminded me so much of their sandwiches! That’s when I started playing around with the recipe combination for what I like to call my ultimate chicken salad sandwich.

  1. I love my chicken salad recipe, but this one looks way too yummy not to try! I used to know a deli like that one…always got the tuna melt on a croissant (regretted every time I didn’t). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Chicken salad is a staple in this house. We make it just about once a week. We don’t deviate from a time tested recipe often, but I like some of the things you include in yours. It may be time to shake things up!

    Chicken salad paired with an Italian white wine like Friulano from Northern Italy is perfect. The white floral and white peach notes of the wine just make a delightful pairing!


  3. I read this post this morning, and made the sandwiches for lunch! It was very good… the difference I made with mine is that I didn’t feel like having it grilled, I just used soft whole wheat bread and added lettuce, and it was YUMMY. Thanks for the Recipe!
