Chicken Salad Sandwich

I could eat chicken salad all week! Sharing one of my favorites today! Chicken Salad is such a great recipe to serve at parties. You can serve it with some great crackers or inside a fabulous soft roll and everyone seems to be happy! I love that you just toss all of your ingredients in one bowl, stir and you are ready enjoy. Perfect for game day munching or lunches during the week. Enjoy!

How to Make This Creamy Chicken Salad

Let’s start with some cooked shredded chicken breast. You can either use a rotisserie chicken and shred it or bake your own and shred it. I like to place 2 chicken breasts into a baking pan with 1/4 cup chicken broth, cover lightly with foil and bake for 50-60 minutes until cooked through. Let rest for 15 minutes before shredding.

    This was REALLY good. My only recommendation would be to add some cut up grapes or apples. With all the saltiness going on in the bacon, cheese, and dressing I think it could use a bit of sweetness to break it up. Otherwise we ate it up for days (made a double batch).

    Thanks for the chicken baking tip! What temperature do you bake it at? I like cooking mine in the crock-pot because the chicken stays so moist but it takes too long!

  14. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    Chicken Salad is my all time favorite sandwich but I have never made a version with bacon! I will definitely have to make this!
