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.
Poppy Seed Dressing
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, diced apples or carrots, and/or salt and pepper. (*Be sure when adding extra ingredients to 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 the 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 placing a heaping scoop-full onto a bed of lettuce. (*Be sure to use GF bread for those on a gluten-free diet!)
Delicious Chicken Salad Sandwiches are perfect for:
- birthday, anniversary, and other various parties
- luncheons & tea parties
- bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and wedding receptions
- baby showers
- holiday gatherings
- Super Bowl party
- neighborhood block party
Your meal can be ready in minutes when you have a container of this chicken salad ready and waiting in the refrigerator. (*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.)
