Chicken sandwich may be one of the most popular items on the regular lunch menu. Though many food joints offer a lot of yummy varieties, making your own makes a chicken sandwich all the more exciting!
The great thing about chicken sandwich is that, it can accommodate a lot of different flavors and textures. Think of bread and chicken as your very own canvass - mayo or a mustard dressing? Chunky pineapple, crisp apple cubes or juicy pieces of grapes? Gooey mozzarella or crumbly feta? The possibilities are endless!
Below are some of the most popular chicken salad sandwich recipes online. Take time to browse them and try making your favorite version this week.
If you prefer baked chicken fillet instead of fried to avoid those extra calories, it would be a good idea to invest in a high-quality non-stick baking mat which will help you cook meat in the oven minus additional oil. You can also use the mats if you like toasting your sandwich before biting right into it!
Lighter Chicken Salad Sandwiches (Love Bakes Good Cakes)
"I'm a bit fan of fruits and various textures in my chicken salad. Instead of using traditional mayonnaise, I made it a bit better for you by substituting Greek yogurt. I also swapped out my usual Oroweat® Whole Grains Sliced Breads for the new Oroweat® Healthfull® bread - have you seen it in your local markets? I went with the nuts and seeds variety because it sounded perfect for my Chicken Salad sandwich! :)"
