Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This is one of my favorite party foods.  For things like baby showers, and bridal showers, I love to make this chicken salad.  It's quick and easy to make, as well as tasty!

The problem with my chicken salad recipe is it's all approximate.  I know, that's hard for a lot of people in the kitchen.  I do a lot by taste and texture/consistency.  Let me tell you the basics though, and you can play with it to suit your tastes!

Posted at:

  • shredded chicken (rotisserie works great for this)
  • Mayo
  • Diced celery
  • Diced grapes
  • seasonings: celery seed, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper

Combine mayo and chicken in a bowl.  Add more mayo or chicken until it's a spreadable consistency--err on the side of more mayo.  Add diced celery and grapes, then check the consistency again.  You want it to be chunky, not too runny.  Add more grapes/celery/chicken to get it to a nice texture.  Add seasonings and taste.  Make sure you can taste enough of what you want--I like being able to taste the onion and celery flavor.  Spread mixture on croissant rolls and serve.

  1. I love it! That's exactly how I make things. I only started measureing just so I can blog my recipes. These look creat on croissants!

  2. I know I could eat a whole plate of these, minus the plate :) Looks delish!

  3. I don't know what it is about salad sandwiches, but they always go best on criossants. They look lovely :), Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  4. They look delicious. Wish I was eating one right now!

  5. Ooo, I like that the picture shows it served on croissants. Chicken salad is one of those awesome "go-to" meals that can be made in bulk for a crowd, but something simple like putting it on a different kind of bread can make it stand out. :)


I love your comments!
