Chicken Salad Sandwich

Posted on August 25, 2009. Filed under: Salads, Sandwich |

I really like chicken salad. I don’t usually like it in restaurants or deli’s b/c it is laden with salt and mayo. Both of which I don’t eat tons of b/c my tastebuds and stomach are a delicate creature.

I love the sweet and salty mix in this chicken salad. The salty chicken and the sweet cranberries. The crunch of the celery combined with the smoothness of the yogurt is just wonderful. This really is like summer comfort food to me. MMMM, that is so tasty.

Makes 4 sandwiches
2 1/2 cups diced rotisserie roasted chicken breast meat (or just pre grilled chicken breasts)
2/3 cup diced celery
2/3 cup diced Granny Smith apples
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
2 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup non fat greek yogurt (or plain non fat yogurt)
salt and pepper to taste
8 slices whole grain bread or 4 croissants
1 small wheel brie cheese

Combine the chicken chunks, celery, apples, almonds, dried cranberries, grapes, green onion and mayonnaise in bowl; mix well. Season with the salt and pepper and mix to blend.
*If you let the mixture chill in the fridge for an hour or so, it tastes even better because it gives the flavors a chance to soak in together.

Spread chicken salad evenly on 4 slices of bread, top with sliced brie and close with top halves of sandwiches. Of course you can throw some lettuce and tomato on there too.
