Chicken Salad Sandwich
Sandwiches, I’d eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could, and this Chicken Salad Sandwich is one of the best. We all know you can’t mess with the classics and this is one of those classic sandwich fillings. I add a little freshly chopped dill at the end to bring an extra little something.
For this sandwich filling, I start by boiling skinless chicken breasts in water with lemon slices and dill. Then I combine the cooked chicken with crunchy celery, sweet apple and red onion. I like to serve this filling on fresh crusty baguette with lettuce and garnished with some finely chopped dill for that extra burst of fresh flavor!
