How To Serve

Serve this classic chicken salad recipe on your favorite bread or croissant for a hearty lunch. If you are skipping the bread, you can try it on a bed of lettuce too. Add a handful of salty potato chips to the side of your plate for added crunch.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: You’ll want to put any leftover sandwich mix in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep well for a couple of days.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing leftover chicken salad as it will become watery once thawed.
