Chicken Salad Sandwich w. Grape Tomatoes
Mark Boughton Photography/styling by Teresa Blackburn

Shredded chicken is good for making salads because it exposes more of the surface to the mayonnaise. To shred, tear with fingers while the chicken is still warm. The recipe makes about 3 cups salad; it can also be used for wraps or pitas.


1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Djon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cooked chicken breast
1 cup grape tomato halves
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
8 slices multi-grain bread
Lettuce leaves optional


  1. Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken, tomatoes, parsley and chives; stir gently.
  2. Spoon about a quarter of the chicken salad on one slice of bread, top with lettuce and another slice of bread and cut diagonally in half. Repeat with remaining bread, salad and lettuce.
