How To Make A Chicken Salad Sandwich
A tasty sandwich like this one shouldn’t be so simple to make…but it is!
- Combine everything except the arugula in a bowl and season.
- Toast the ciabatta bread as desired.
- Place arugula on one side of toasted ciabatta bread and scoop BLT chicken salad on top.
- Add a slice of cheese (optional provolone or swiss) and top with the other toasted half of ciabatta bread.
PRO TIP: For an open-faced toasted sandwich, scoop filling on top of one half of ciabatta bread, cover with a slice of cheese, and place under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbly about 3 minutes.
PRO TIP: Rub a clove of garlic over the toasted ciabatta for a savory, gourmet touch!
Easy Chicken Salad Tricks and Tips
- BLT chicken salad will keep in the fridge for about 4 days as long as it’s covered.
- Serve it again on top of a bed of mixed greens, or tucked into a pita pocket or a wrap for a quick lunch on the go!
- BLT chicken salad can be frozen in a labeled zippered bag. It will last for about two weeks. After it’s thawed add a little extra Dijon and some fresh bacon bits to freshen it up and it will be ready to serve again!
