Classic Chicken Salad Sandwich

January 22, 2014





  1. Chicken salad is something I’m picky about too – and for me it MUST be on a croissant! This looks like a winner in my book!

    I really dislike mayonnaise, too! I’m always grossed out at sandwich shops when they ask if I want mayo on my chicken salad or egg salad sandwich…isn’t it already *made* with mayo?! This sandwich looks super tasty – I never would have thought of using water chestnuts!

      Oh man totally forgot to write about the extra mayo in the post. I agree why would you want more when it’s already added in the mix. The worst part is when you can see it oozing on the bread.

  3. I’m not a huge fan of mayo, but I do love a good chicken salad! I can’t stand mushrooms. The texture really bothers me. I’m not a picky eater at all, but I won’t touch any dish that has mushrooms in it.

  4. That’s funny that you don’t like mayo but can eat it in this! Love that! Pinned 🙂

    This would make the perfect lunch for today, yummy!

  6. Love a good chicken salad, especially one that doesn’t include nuts!

  7. Meagan this is totally calling my name! I too love chicken salad and will sheepishly admit I never make it myself! So silly. You’ve motivated me to get over that with this recipe. I love the photos! The light is so inviting.

    Oooo! Water chestnuts! I love chicken salad with some crunch! Looks perfect! 🙂

    Ever tried using Greek yogurt instead of Mayo?

  15. AmyS says:

    I just made this today. I grabbed my mayo from the fridge and opened it only to find that it was ROTTEN! Gross. We don’t use it hardly EVER. So I made from mayo from scratch. Very yummy. This is delicious. I later added some curry powder to it and it was super yummy that way too. I will definitely make this again.

  16. I love a good chicken salad, and I love the idea of adding water chestnuts. These look wonderful!

  17. DeniseR says:

    finally found it,, leaving the chestnuts out,, but this is perfect, i am picking up croissants after work, and making this.

  18. Jamie says:

    This sounds like a recipe my husband would love. He is a big fan of chicken salad…me not so much. I will have to try this out for him!

    Megan this sounds awesome but there is a way around the mayonnaise and that theory is Campbell’s condensed cream of chicken soup. Try it . It’s awesome!
