Warm Open Faced Chicken Salad Sandwich

Scroll down to content

I adore chicken salad sandwiches. Ever since the first time I bit into one when eating at the Cheesecake Factory I have been in love.

Oftentimes I will buy rotisserie chicken from Costco (my dogs love to snack on it) and I’ve been known to buy more than one rotisserie chicken during a shopping trip.  You see my dogs are smart and think they are human. After awhile they actually get sick of eating chicken and demand some other human food.  Which means that inevitably I need something to do with all that leftover chicken. My go to something in most instances is a simple chicken salad sandwich. Nothing fancy. Just lightly toasted bread, cubed chicken, mayonnaise, salt and pepper, oregano and maybe some finely chopped onion.

Every once in a while I want a chicken salad sandwich that’s a bit fancier. In those moments I turn to Google or Pinterest for inspiration. Recently I came across a recipe for a hot chicken salad sandwich that had me intrigued. I mean I’ve eaten warm tuna salad sandwiches (aka tuna melt) and it’s one of the best sandwiches around, so why not do the same thing with chicken salad? It seemed like a no-brainer but something I had never before considered. I normally consider myself somewhat of a food genius but clearly not in this instance.

So I took my standard chicken salad and piled it onto a bed of arugula anchored by my standard whole wheat bread. Then I topped the whole thing with a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese, stuck it under the broiler and not long after that… voila. A star was born.

The ingredients listed below are per sandwich.

ingredients.

  • 1 slice of your favorite sandwich bread
  • 4 oz leftover rotisserie chicken shredded or cubed
  • 1/4 c. minced fresh onion
  • 1 T. mayonnaise (or more if you don’t care about calories or fat)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • dried oregano, to taste
  • arugula or sliced tomatoes (or both)
  • 1 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

directions.

  1. Combine chicken, onion, mayonnaise, salt and pepper and oregano in a bowl and mix.
  2. Place lettuce and/or tomatoes on top of bread if using. Top with chicken salad and cheese and place under a broiler until cheese has melted and bread has begun to toast around the edges.
