I apologize for posting only once each week. Since the beginning of 2018 I’ve been swamped! Let me catch you up on a few life events. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I made the dumb mistake of having family pictures taken in the snow, with a 3 year old. It was bad. My husband and I bribed my son to the moon and back. But Bronson refused to smile. I learned my lesson… as magical as snowy family pictures may seem, they ARE NOT magical with a toddler. 😂

Amongst all the craziness of family life, I forgot to share with you some good news! If you’ve read my about page you’ll know my husband has been applying for residency positions across the country. We found out towards the beginning of January where we’re going…..

Houston, TX!

We look forward to moving to Texas spring of 2019.

I’ve been warned that Houston Texas has incredibly hot and humid weather. I’m not a summer gal. At all!

In fact, when the weather turns hot (even in Utah), I find myself making Grilled Tomato, Mozzarella, and Pesto Sandwiches or these Chicken Salad Sandwiches for lunch because of the refreshing ingredients found in both sandwiches. I wouldn’t be surprised if I make these easy chicken salad sandwiches on a weekly basis once we move.

There are a few things you should know about this chicken salad sandwich recipe:

You don’t have to follow it exactly. If you want more grapes, add more grapes. If you want more cashews, add more cashews. You do your thing.

However, I suggest you add the seasonings. I love Mrs. Dash seasoning, so I always add that. To add another punch of flavor into these chicken salad sandwiches, I add some celery salt. It elevates the celery flavor, which I LOVE! Try it. I think you’ll love it too!!

I don’t always have beautiful croissants on hand so I usually add the chicken salad mixture to a roll or a regular slice of bread. It’s delicious no matter what you serve it on!

Chicken Salad Sandwich

A delicious chicken salad filled with celery, grapes, and cashews.

Prep Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
20 mins
Calories: 618 kcal
  • 3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded about 16 oz
  • 1 1/8 cup mayo
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped (I do a heaping 3/4 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups grapes, cut in half
  • 2/3 cup cashews, roughly chopped (I like a lot of cashews so I'll do a heaping 2/3 cup, or even 1 cup)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8-10 rolls or croissants*
  1. In a large bowl combine the shredded chicken, mayo, celery, grapes, cashews, Mrs. Dash seasoning, celery salt, and salt. Stir to combine. 

  2. Cut rolls or croissants in half length wise, and fill each roll with the chicken salad filling. Add lettuce to the sandwich if you desire. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*If using rolls, you'll get a lot more than 8 sandwiches.
