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.

    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!

    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!

    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!
