Last night I had some girlfriends over for an end of summer Girls Night In. The main dish: Scrumptious Summer Chicken Salad Sandwiches. What a better way to end the summer on a high note than with friends, enjoying their company, catching up on things and sharing some laughter and good food? Everyone enjoyed these chicken salad sandwiches that I threw together. I love it when a recipe falls into place like that!
The trick to these quick chicken salad sandwiches is simply a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Or, if you have a rotisserie appliance, you can do it yourself. I’ve thought of buying one myself, and am sure I would love smelling that delicious chicken cooking all day. The having to wait to eat it part might bother me just a bit. So… for these Scrumptious Summer Chicken Salad Sandwiches, I didn’t want to be in the kitchen preparing food all day since I knew I was going to be B.U.S.Y. All day long. This was a huge time saver!
I simply refrigerated the rotisserie chicken until cold and then took all the meat off the bones. Once that was done, I put it all on a cutting board and chopped it up a bit.
Other ingredients used: red onion, celery, and either black or red seedless grapes. I used black seedless grapes and quartered them. They tasted so sweet and were the perfect compliment to the ground mustard, pepper and salt that I used to spice up the chicken salad. I mixed it all together with mayo (the kind that has olive oil) and refrigerated it for about an hour. Perfection!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
