Too Easy Chicken Salad Sandwich

We tend to keep Craisins (dried cranberries) in our cupboard most of the time.  They are my absolute favorite to throw into chicken salad!  This past Sunday we made a giant roaster chicken for dinner as we had guests – with Christmas leftovers (ham), party leftovers (hors d’oeuvres), and now the chicken… something HAD to be done!  I whipped up a big bowl of my favorite chicken salad for lunch yesterday because my dad and stepmother were still in town.  I made so much that it was still delicious today!

Easy Leftover Chicken Salad Sandwich @ HappyWifey.netIngredients:

  • Diced/shredded/cubed Cooked chicken (mine was from a chicken we roasted)
  • Mayo, to taste (I used half light and half regular)
  • Green onions (or red onion, if you have that on hand)
  • Craisins (or raisins, nuts, grapes, apples…)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Toast :)
  • Lettuce and or tomato (If I am feeling REALLY crazy… cheddar cheese slices!)


Oh, so you noticed there are no amounts in the ingredients list, huh?  That’s because this is a NOT-recipe.  I wanted to provide you the ingredient list but I promise you, if you do what you like.. yours will come out great.

Simply mix the mayo, craisins, and diced green onions (scallions) in a bowl with the chicken.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Don’t put too much mayo if you like it dry.  If you like it moist or are eating it a second day, add a bit more mayo.  Add whatever you like!  Sometimes I add grapes, walnuts, pecans.. the list goes on.  This above ingredient list is my most used… because I almost always have these things on hand. Sometimes I eat this on lettuce (to reduce carbs) or on wheat flatbreads.  Yum!
