I was having a party at my home and wanted an easy sandwich to prepare. I came up with a Bacon Chicken Salad Recipe!
The week before, I had eaten a Chicken Salad Sandwich with bacon at Starbucks, and since it tasted absolutely WONDERFUL, I decided I wanted to make something similar at home. I checked out a few of the ingredients, and figured I would put my own version together.
1 pound of cooked cubed or pieced chicken breast
3 Heaping tbsps of Mayo (use 4 for a wetter chicken salad)
2 tbsps of chopped chives
4 pieces of crumbled bacon
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1/4 tsp of pepper
How I did it:
The night before my party, I boiled the chicken, let it cool, and then cut it apart. Left over chicken would work fine for this. I then combined all of the ingredients together with a spoon and served on honey wheat bread.
This made 4 whole sandwiches. I cut into halves making a total of 8 and it served around 6 people.
Tip: Hold the bread together with tooth picks and add a piece of romaine lettuce for color and texture. I think white bread or croissants would work just as well.
The chives made this sandwich smell so good and this combination of ingredients gave it a unique taste. It was yummy and my guests said to definitely make it again!
Do you prepare a version of this Chicken Salad? What ingredients do you include?
