Chicken Salad Sandwich

This recipe was actually the result of a happy accident. I wanted to make my favorite standard chicken salad — mayo, celery, walnuts — but when I got home after a long day I realized I was out of mayo... and walnuts. And I really, really didn't want to go back out to the store (you know what that's like). So I improvised with what I did have on-hand: balsamic vinegar and arugula. The result? A Delicious, simple, and oh-so easy sandwich.

Notes

To make this recipe even easier, I used store-bought roasted chicken. You can also use leftover cooked chicken. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2  whole roasted chicken, meat removed and chopped
  • 3-4  tablespoons  balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • slices multigrain bread
  • 1  cup  baby arugula

Directions

Add the chicken pieces to a small mixing bowl. Add the vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and mix to full incorporate all of the ingredients, seasoning to taste.

Meanwhile, toast 4 pieces of multi-grain bread. When the bread is ready, add about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of chicken salad to each sandwich. Top both sandwiches with about a 1/2 cup of arugula.

Chopped Chicken Salad Cooking Tip

Legs take longer than breasts to cook. For more consistent results, mark the chicken on the grill and then finish cooking them in an oven.
