Chicken Salad Sandwich with Mini Hoagie Roll

Chicken Salad Sandwich with Mini Hoagie Roll

Hi everybody :)

Going by what I already had on hand, I search for the perfect recipe. It was a hard search but I manage to come up with something, I really need to go shopping soon :) When I saw the chicken salad recipe I made some changes to it according to my likes.

Here's What I Did...

Chicken Salad slightly adapted Taste of Home Quick Cooking Annual Cookbook (2010)


About 6 Mini Herbal "Hoagie" Rolls or whatever rolls you like
3 cups cooked chicken, rotisserie or canned (well drained, if using canned) (I love using the breast meat)
1/4 cup chopped celery (I also added 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds)
1/4 cup sliced almond
1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (not shown)
teaspoon Salad Supreme
1 teaspoon dried ranch dressing mix (not shown)
Tomato Slices,  optional
Fresh Spinach Leaves, optional
Cheese Slices, optional

Split rolls in half horizontally, butter and toast each halves lightly; if desired.
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. 
In a smaller bowl combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, Salad Supreme and dressing mix.  
 Pour over chicken mixture; toss to coat. 
Place salad mixture on top of the bottoms. Top with Spinach Leaves, Tomato Slices, and Cheese Slices. Replace the tops.

What I Think:

Although, my first choice would have been a roast beef sandwich, like Heather suggested :) The chicken salad turn out to be very tasty. I love the sweet tartness the craisins (dried cranberries) added.  The rolls were still delicious.  So... great combination right? Wrong. 

I think these two different flavors were definitely GREAT, BUT NOT TOGETHER, so they will be REPEATED, BUT SEPARATELY, next time :)

****Update: I made this sandwich again left out the tomato slice and cheese, added 2 tablespoon  guacamole dip on it, DELICIOUS!!!

Now, I'm craving that roast beef sandwich :)
ENJOY! Come again...
