Chicken Salad Sandwiches
These lunchbox-friendly sandwiches are packed with flavour.
- 600g diced poached chicken
- 1 stalk celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
- 4 spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon or fresh dill
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
- 180g mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons strained freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 8 slices thick-cut brown bread of your choice
- Sandwich fillings of your choice (crispy smoked bacon, vine-ripened tomatoes and lettuce)
In a mixing bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, spring onions and herbs. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Add to the chicken and mix gently until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Build sandwich by placing lettuce, bacon, tomatoes and salad on top of one slice of bread. Top with the second slice of bread. You can secure with a cocktail stick if you prefer. Alternatively, serve on a bed of lettuce with sliced tomatoes, in half an avocado.
