We love shredded chicken tacos and sometimes that leaves us with some leftover shredded chicken to use for lunch. One afternoon, I wanted something quick and easy so I looked up some chicken salad sandwich recipes and combined and tweaked until we hit the perfect combination.
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.
