Bacon Blue Cheese Chicken Salad Sandwiches

More than any other time of year, summer is when I make chicken salad sandwiches. Maybe because I grill boneless chicken breasts a lot and always cook an extra one so that the next day all I need to do is combine a few simple ingredients together for a cold chicken salad that’s perfect on toasted bread. Often, I go with whatever I have on hand in the fridge, but lately, I’ve been enjoying some crumbled blue cheese, which adds richness and a tangy surprise, stirred into the salad. Some crispy romaine lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and crispy bacon slices turn it all into a sandwich that’s perfect for lunch on a hot day.

Some Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast. Any way you want to cook it is fine, but be sure to season it well with salt and pepper.
  • Mayonnaise
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh parsley
  • Thick-cut bacon
  • Whole-grain bread
  • Slice tomato, romaine leaves, and alfalfa sprouts
