Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe

A dinner of leftovers tonight. I can hardly cook when the doorbell keeps ringing!

First, I had some leftover Sort of Mexican Chicken Soup.  I added a large spoonful of this avocado pico del gallo and some crushed tortilla chips. Mmm!

I also used the last of the cooked chicken to make a chicken salad sandwich.  I am totally guessing at the measurements just to give any new cooks a starting place. You must taste and adjust!

  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1-2 Tbs sweet pickle relish
  • 2-3 Tbs mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • a dash of sweet curry powder
  • a dash of salt

I toasted up some sliced sourdough for the sandwich part. Had I wanted a salad without the bread I might have added some diced apples and/or diced grapes.  I kept the curry powder very light. I just wanted a hint of it.  Really quite nice!

Oh, and I don’t mean to imply this only made one sandwich. There is more chicken salad for tomorrow!
