Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe
A great way to use up left-over chicken

This Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe is a great solution for left-overs the day after a nice roast chicken dinner. This sandwich salad recipe not only uses up the left-over meat - but some of the vegetables too.

Check my list of Optional Ingredients and you will see that many vegetables can be incorporated into your simple salad sandwich recipe.

There are many versions of chicken salad on the internet today. First off - I have outlined the very basic chicken salad recipe below, with a list of optional additions from which you can choose to customize your simple salad sandwich recipe to suit yourself.

These salad sandwich recipes are not only a nice change from the cold meat alternative - they are also healthier since they don't have a lot of additives and preservatives.

Chicken Salad Recipe for a Sandwich


  • 1 cup (240 ml) of diced (or shredded) cooked chicken
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) real mayo
  • salt & pepper to taste


1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.

2. Adjust to taste with salt & pepper

Yield: 4 thick chicken sandwiches

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) diced green onion or chives
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) diced celery
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) cranberry sauce or (craisins)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) cooked peas
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) cooked corn kernels
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) shredded carrot(or finely diced cooked carrots)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) bean sprouts
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) diced sweet pepper


My family prefers the green onion, cranberry sauce, and corn kernel version from the Optional Ingredients.

Personally, I also prefer to add a bit of diced sweet pepper.

You can try different combinations until you find your utmost favourite sandwich version.

This sandwich salad recipe also works well with left-over turkey from Thanksgiving or Easter.
