Description

Chicken salad with crumbled blue cheese and crispy bacon is a delicious twist on a classic sandwich.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Sandwiches

  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 (10-oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked (see note)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 8 slices whole grain bread, toasted

Optional Toppings

  • Tomato slices
  • Romain lettuce
  • Alfalfa sprouts

 


Instructions

  1. In a non-stick skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel.
  2. Cut the chicken into small pieces. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, parsley, blue cheese, and lemon juice. Give it a taste and season with additional salt, if needed.
  3. Divide the chicken salad between four bread slices, top with the bacon and other toppings if using.

Notes

When I grill chicken, I like to cook extra for sandwiches like this one. I just season the chicken with salt and pepper, cook it, and keep it in the refrigerator¬†until I’m ready to make sandwiches.

I used Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain Bread. Depending on the brand you use the nutrition estimate may vary.
