Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Have I told you that I love it when my kids cook? 
I love it for a few reasons: 
1. They are learning valuable life skills 
(every gal and guy should know their way around the kitchen!)
2. They feel such pride when serving their completed meal
3. They are giving their mamma a night off from cooking
(and I love visiting with them while THEY prepare a meal)

This has been a week of kid planned/prepared meals....

Tonight was Chicken Salad Sandwich night (on sourdough
or croissant, your choice).



Chicken Salad Sandwiches

8 cups cooked and chopped chicken breast
2 cups mayo
4 tbsp lemon juice
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups blanched slivered almonds (chopped fine)
4 stalks celery (chopped fine)
3 apples (cored and chopped fine, peel on is yummy)
1 red onion (medium size, chopped fine)




In a saucepan over medium heat combine finely chopped red onions, almonds, and celery and stir for 2-3 minutes carefully watching almonds (they burn quickly).  Remove from heat. In a large bowl combine chopped chicken breast, chopped apples, and mayo and stir.  Add in red onions, almonds, and celery from saucepan and toss.  Finally, add lemon juice and pepper (you may add more to taste).  Chill in fridge for one hour and serve on croissants, sourdough, or any bread of your choice. 



delish!
