Homemade Chicken Salad Sandwich

Hey there,

If you have leftover chicken then this classic Homemade Chicken Salad Sandwich is a must!  For me, the most important ingredient to use for these salad recipes is mayonnaise.  I use mayonnaise and sometimes I add Greek yogurt.  Greek yogurt gives a lighter taste to the salad,  but this time I just added light mayonnaise no Greek yogurt.

I started by roasting half a chicken rather than a whole chicken because my intention from the get-go was to make Chicken Salad Sandwiches.  I don’t use boiled chicken for this recipe, but I did add one boiled potato to the mix. The potato gives the salad a bit more texture and it actually turned out very tasty.  In most of the salads. they don’t tend to add potatoes but I thought why not give it a bit more of a twist?

This simple Homemade Chicken salad recipe so there is no added mustard of any kind because when you add mustard I believe that you take away the taste of the roasted chicken.  These cold salad sandwiches are always a refreshing option when it comes to what to prepare for lunch during the summer.  You can also prepare all the ingredients in advance for example the chicken.  I always prefer to roast the chicken a day in advance.  The reason is that when the chicken is placed in the fridge overnight it absorbed the spices and oil etc.  The next day all you have to do is shred the chicken into smaller pieces, not very small but just enough so that you can taste the chicken in every bite.

This Homemade Chicken Salad Sandwich recipe is worth the try!  Don’t forget to toast the sandwich bun.

As for me, I roasted a piece of Salmon.

Have a wonderful morning/afternoon/evening.
