Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe

Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe

One of the jobs I had in college landed me in the middle of working with some really great cooks.  Every Friday, three of the people I worked with would prepare a home-cooked meal, and bring it for breakfast.  It wasn’t always breakfast that was served either… people brought their specialty, and we all got to eat a wonderful meal.  

One of the ladies I worked with would always bring chicken salad sandwiches, and you had to be first in line to get them, because they went fast!  They were beyond tasty, and honest to goodness, I could have probably eaten 6 entire sandwiches by myself.  

Since I no longer work there, I have had to learn how recreate a chicken salad sandwich recipe that resembles the sandwiches I was so fond of.  My recipe has evolved some over time, but I still like to keep it sweet and simple.  A little cooked chicken, cucumbers, mayonnaise and some seasoning.  

I don’t always use mayonnaise, since it isn’t a “real” food, and it’s not good for you.  Sure, you can try subbing in greek yogurt or sour cream, but it’s not going to taste as good.  It just won’t.  And as long as you’re not eating them on a weekly basis, I think splurging every once in a while is okay!  (And if you’re really concerned with it, Trader Joe’s makes an organic mayonnaise that seems to be a little bit healthier… and of course, you could always make your own)

Makes 8 sliders or 4 sandwiches

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cubed 
  • 1/4 cup cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, plus extra for spreading on bread 
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 dash of hot sauce (optional) 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 dinner rolls or 8 bread slices 
  • lettuce
  • sliced tomatoes

Combine cooked chicken, cucumbers, mayo, vinegar, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a medium bowl, and give it a good stir so all of the ingredients are mixed well.  

The dinner rolls make the chicken salad sandwiches into little sliders, or you can use regular sliced bread for a more conventional sandwich.  If using rolls, cut them in half, and spread a little mayo on each side of the rolls.  If using regular sliced bread, spread with mayo.  Fill the rolls or sandwiches with the chicken salad filling, and place a little piece of lettuce and a tomato slice on top.

The picture you see in this post are sliders, made on homemade rolls (get the recipe, here!). My husband, who normally doesn’t get too excited when I serve sandwiches for dinner, was delighted to see these were on the menu.  They are super tasty!
