Ingredients

3 tablespoons dark or golden raisins
2 medium carrots
1 1/2 cups finely shredded chicken
1/2 cup mayonaise
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh chives
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Plump the raisins by soaking them in 1/2 cup warm water for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, grate the carrots on the largest holes of a box grater; you should have about 1 cup grated carrots. Place the carrots in a bowl.
  3. Drain the raisins and add them to the bowl with the chicken mayonnaise, and chives. Season with salt and pepper and mix the ingredients with a rubber spatula.
  4. Divide the mixture among the bread slices and sandwich them together.
