Chicken Salad Sandwich Ingredients:
3 cups (approximately 3/4) of roasted boneless, skinless chicken breast that has been chopped
1/3 cup of green onions that have been chopped
1/4 cup of fat-free yogurt
1/4 cup of chopped smoked almonds
1/4 cup of light mayo
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of chopped fresh rosemary
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
10 slices of whole-grain bread (We recommend a hearty, whole grain bread. However, you can use whatever kind you prefer most!)
Chicken Salad Sandwich Directions:
If your chicken is not already cooked, you can boil it on the stove or cook it in a crock-pot. Once the chicken has cooked, allow it to cool. Chop it into bite-sized pieces (or whatever sized pieces your prefer in your chicken salad). Then, combine the chicken, green onions, smoked almonds, yogurt, mayo, fresh rosemary, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Once the ingredients have been mixed together, spread the chicken salad out over the slices of bread. Top each piece of bread with another slice of bread. Cut your chicken salad sandwiches in half. Dig in, and enjoy! This recipe pairs nicely with fresh cut fruit such as watermelon or apple slices.
