From The Kitchen: Chicken Salad Sandwiches

July 2, 2013


Hooray, for another easy recipe from the troves of Emily Approved (read: very very easy to make & somewhat healthy) meals!

Today we’re talking Chicken Salad Sandwiches (or as Tom Haverford calls them, Sammies)


  • 7oz of shredded Chicken Breast. (I used Kirkland’s Select brand – comes in a 3.5 oz can)
  • 1/2 cup Mayonaise (I used light Mayo)
  • A generous handful of Craisins (because they are delish, obviously)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (gives it a nice crunch)
  • Whole Wheat bread (to make it the sandwich)

If you’re feeling crazy/adventurous, add some nuts and honey. I want to add some chopped pecans and a drizzle of honey on top.

Mix the first 4 ingredients (and anything else you want to add!) in a bowl. Chill in the fridge for an hour (or in the freezer for 15 minutes), then spread on the bread. You’re done!


So yummy! And the crasins make it healthy right?

This amount made 8 sandwiches for us, so we ate 2 each for dinner and the rest for lunch the next day. It’s apparently so tasty of a meal, that Sasha jumped out and grabbed a sammie from off Matt’s plate on the kitchen counter – so, uhhh, Dog Approved!

What do you add in your chicken salad? Any suggestions to add in mine?
