Well, I overcooked the chicken last night…and my husband didn’t make it home for dinner. So I had some leftovers that were not going to stand up to reheating…but of course I couldn’t myself to throw them out. The solution: chicken salad sandwiches! Granted, these taste better with moist chicken, but they are still yummy with less than stellar leftovers.
1-1/2 c cooked chicken, chopped
2-3 green onions, sliced
1/2 c red grapes, halved
1/3 c celery, sliced
1/4 – 1/3 c mayo (use more if your chicken is dry)
1 Tbl dijon mustard
1 Tbl sliced almonds
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
dash of garlic salt/powder
Mix everything together and taste, add more salt, pepper or garlic if needed. If you let the salad sit for 30+ minutes, it will taste so much better. Pile some chicken salad on your favorite bread (toasted if you like) and add some fresh veggies, and a pickle spear. Or you can mix in some pasta (bow tie, spiral, shells, etc.) for a nice bowl lunch, be sure to add some additional mayo and dijon.
