Picnic Chicken Salad


I know that the idea of a spring picnic seems months away, but this mild January weather has me dreaming of flip flops and shorts. Since we might not be having any picnics in the near future, this chicken salad is perfect for baby and bridal showers or even for an easy weekday lunch option. I love to make this chicken salad over the weekend and have lunch for the rest of the week!

You Will Need:
  • 2 cups pulled white meat chicken (buy a cooked rotisserie chicken to make it easier!)
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise or miracle whip
  • 2 Tbsp slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbsp Craisins
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 tsp minced tarragon
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sat
  • Leaf lettuce and tomato slices for topping
  • 2 slices of wheat bread, toasted

Here We Go:
  • Place the chicken in a bowl and add mayonnaise, almonds, Craisins, celery, tarragon, salt, pepper and toss well
  • To assemble, top toasted bread with chicken salad, leaf lettuce and two slices of tomato
  • Cut in half and serve

Makes 2 Sandwiches
Happy Feasting!

Chicken Salad Sandwhiches are my favorite! This recipe looks great and I'm thinking of cheaping out on a dinner this week and getting a ready made chicken so I can make this with the leftovers! SCORE! Thanks for the yummy recipe!
