Chicken salad sandwich recipe might become one of your top favourites really soon if you give it a go. It is delicious not just for breakfast, but for any time of the day. Besides that, it is really so easy to prepare!
The combination of chicken and vegetables in the salad packed between two slices of high-fibre bread means you are getting a great deal of nutrients in that one sandwich, so you definitely should pay close attention to this recipe.
Benefits Of Chicken
Chicken is a healthy form of protein as it is white meat, therefore it has considerably lesser amount of cholesterol compared to the red meat counterparts like beef. However, people take advantage of this by preparing chicken in a sinful manner.
Instead of opting for broiled, grilled or poached, some of us might prefer deep-frying. This makes the meal unhealthy, because of the high content of oil in the chicken. Therefore, try to prepare as healthy meals as possible.
Protein is the number one ingredient needed by the human body, without which our cells with die. Every single cell in our body requires protein to grow and repair themselves. There is a misconception that only muscles need protein, which is not true.
Knowing this, you now understand why a diet rich in protein is a must. However, do not load up on protein and neglect other nutrients. A balanced diet is the key to leading a fulfilling and enriching life.
Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe
- 2 slices of your favourite choice of bread (preferably high fibre ones), toasted
- 250 grams of chicken breast meat, roasted, cut into bite-sized pieces (or you could prepare it however you like)

In a large mixing bowl, add all the vegetables and give it a good toss. Add in mustard sauce depending on how much you want. Make sure the vegetables get a good mix once more.
Now add in the chicken bits and continue mixing.
Add the mixture to the bread, cover with another slice of bread and toast it for a minute before serving.
Try preparing your chicken a different way and see how you like the taste! I’ve seen my friend steam it with loads of spice and herbs and it tasted delicious! However, I’m not very keen on preparing elaborate ingredients and steaming chicken.
After all, most of us are quite hard-pressed for time to go to such lengths just to prepare a sandwich. However, if you’d like to try, I would certainly want to know how it turned out for you.
