Chicken salad sandwiches are always a great hit whether it is for a party, picnic, potlucks, or just for your kid’s lunch box. They are very easy to make and highly nutritional for everyone. Especially in summers, you can make them for a quick bite before going to the office or coming home after the hectic routine. You can add your favorite flavors and whip them up with cream and mayonnaise. If you have some leftovers left of rotisserie chicken, then don’t waste it. You can use it to make this delicious and yummy treat for yourself.
You can also use canned chicken if you are quickly making it for kids or some guests coming over. All the ingredients we will be using are already available in the kitchen or easy to get. You can consider it as a last-minute meal especially when you have nothing else in the kitchen. Moreover, add tomato slices or cabbage to the sandwich. You can serve it with fresh and homemade French fries or coleslaw.
If you have a food chopper at home, it will help you to make it really quick. Moreover, you can use chicken breasts in the chopper if they are available at home instead of a can. It is a versatile dish that you can make with any ingredients you want to add. Some people like to add only salt and pepper. But you want some spice to go ahead and add some paprika as well.
