Thanks for sharing!

Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches seem to be one of those fabulous food items that can be served for nearly every occasion or event. These tasty sandwiches also work well as a lunch or dinner entree for your very own family. The recipe is gluten-free as well as dairy, soy, wheat, peanut, and sulfite-free. I think you’ll agree with me, this recipe’s a keeper!

Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Life is busy and therefore I often do a few meal preparations beforehand. For example, I like to cook chicken in the crockpot overnight and save the chicken and/or broth for later. Sometimes I freeze both, but sometimes I freeze just the broth and use the chicken right away. Such is the case when I make Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches.

Since Anna and I both seem to be pretty frugal, we hate to waste anything. Therefore we try to use every bit that we possibly can of a whole chicken. Waste not, want not. Right?

In addition to keeping extra frozen chicken broth on hand, I also like keeping a jar or two of my Easy Poppy Seed Dressing in the refrigerator. It’s ridiculously versatile, is ready in minutes, and requires only five ingredients. Furthermore, this recipe can also be easily modified to be gluten-free. (Pssst… I use this dressing in Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches!!!!)

When making Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches, feel free to divide the recipe in half, or add additional ingredients such as walnuts, seeds, or diced apples or carrots, and/or salt and pepper. (*Be sure when adding extra ingredients use things that are suitable for gluten/dairy/soy/peanut free diets.)

Although serving a chicken salad on croissants seems to be the standard (and a tad bit more elegant), you may also serve chicken salad on hamburger buns or sliced bread, inside a pita, or wrapped up in a tortilla wrap. Other options include using crackers or tortilla chips to scoop up bites of chicken salad, or simply place a heaping scoop-full onto a bed of lettuce. (*Be sure to use GF bread for those on a gluten-free diet!)

Linda (Full disclosure: I am allergic to onions so I always remove a portion of salad for myself and then add diced onions to the remaining batch of chicken salad.)
