Balsamic Chopped Chicken Salad Sandwich

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
  • 4 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.
