Chicken Soup: Nature's Best Cold Remedy

Chicken Salad Sandwiches


2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, each about 6 oz.

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1/2 cup mayonnaise, plus more for serving

2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

2 celery stalks, thinly sliced

3 green onions, white portion only

20 thin slices sandwich bread


Put the chicken breasts in a small fry pan and add cold water to cover. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the chicken is opaque throughout, 7 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a plate and let cool. Using your fingers or 2 forks, pull the chicken into shreds.

In a bowl, whisk together the 1/2 cup mayonnaise, the lemon juice, celery and green onions until blended and smooth. Fold in the chicken.

Trim the crusts from the bread slices. Spread each of the slices with mayonnaise. Divide the chicken mixture among 10 of the slices. Put the remaining bread slices on top and press gently. Cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal. Arrange the sandwiches on a platter and serve immediately. Makes 10 sandwiches.

It was so lovely of you to take the time and trouble to leave me a blog comment :)
I often feel when I post stuff like that, that Im begging for sympathy and really...Im just trying to reach out and express my honest views.
Your support helps me realise that I am indeed normal, doing what any normal mother would do anyway she can.
