The other day I found a whole chicken at the store for $2.  So I roasted it, had a semi-thanksgiving in August and then had leftovers.  What are the best leftovers with chicken?  I will tell you, it is chicken salad sandwiches.  I love them.  I was also introduced to the greatest sandwich spread ever.  I don’t ever remember seeing it when I lived in the North, but it is all over down here. It makes everything taste better!  Dukes Mayo.  It is from Richmond, it is delicious, and you have to get it instead of the other stuff you were using.  No joke, I am not getting paid for this, the stuff is delicious!!!

Chicken Salad Remix

  • 4 cups diced chicken, (roasted, broiled, poached, purchased from a store, etc…)
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 4 green onions, finely diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise, I love Dukes
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tbs dried parsley
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • pinch black pepper

Chicken Salad Sandwich

  • 2 slices soft sandwich bread, I like a soft sour dough bread
  • 1/2 cup chicken salad, recipe above
  • lettuce
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 2-4 slices red onion
  • extra mayonnaise, if you like

Making the Salad

Prepping your ingredients will be the quickest and cleanest way to make any recipe.  Start by dicing the veggies and chicken.

Prepping makes for easier cleanup

In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper and red wine vinegar.   Then mix in the parsley and dill.

Mix the mayo and herbs

Add the chicken, celery and onions to the bowl.  Fold everything together so that the chicken does not mash together.

Fold in the chicken

Since I made this with dried herbs it needs to sit for at least an hour before eating.  If you make this with fresh herbs you can go ahead and eat it.


I like to assemble this with a nice soft sandwich bread.  I get a soft crust sour dough bread.  It is amazing.  Then I coat one side with a little additional mayonnaise.  I love the stuff.  Not necessary.  Then pile on lettuce and tomato and a couple slices of red onion.

Layer up your ingredients

Then using an ice cream scoop I add two scoops of chicken salad to the top.

Awesome Chicken Salad

Add the other slice of bread and you have an amazing sandwich.
