Chicken Mixture

  • 1 chicken breasts boneless skinless boneless skinless
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or more if you like
  • 2 teaspoon dill relish
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon Morton Nature’s Seasons Seasoning Blend

  • pepper to taste

Sandwich Fixings

  • 8 slice bread toasted
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 leaves lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes sliced


  • Boil chicken until it starts falling apart (about an hour or so).
  • Shred chicken by hand or with a stand mixer.
  • If not in a bowl, put the shredded chicken in a mixing bowl.
  • Stir in remaining chicken mixture ingredients.
  • Put in refrigerator while preparing the rest of the sandwich.
  • Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on each slice of toasted bread.
  • Place some lettuce and tomato slices on one slice of bread per sandwich.
  • Divide the chicken mixture between the sandwiches and place on the tomatoes.
  • Place the mayonnaise only slice of bread on the top of the chicken mixture, mayonnaise side down.
  • Serve with your favorite side. We love potato chips.


Tip: Using leftover chicken makes for a quick & easy lunch. A single boneless skinless chicken breast typically yields 1 to 2 cups of shredded chicken depending on size of the chicken breast.
Variation: Use the chicken mixture over mixed greens or inside a flour tortilla for a different spin.
