How to Make Chicken Salad with Grapes on Sandwiches
What I love most about this recipe is, if you don’t have leftovers, you can purchase a freshly cooked rotisserie chicken from the market, dice it up, and use it as the base.
When I’m trying to reduce my carb intake, I make this recipe as a standalone without any bread.
And yes I know the grapes still have some carbs, but I’m not sacrificing that juicy flavor.
When I’m making this dish for a special occasion, like a tea party, I grab a yummy carb, and my personal favorite is croissants.
Because I can’t get enough them.
That buttery, flaky pastry gets me every time.
So it is my go to for this chicken salad with grapes sandwich recipe.
To make the dish, simply dice up your chicken into bite size pieces.
Then slice the grapes and add them to your chicken in a mixing bowl.
Toss in about 2/3 cup of mayonnaise, then mix it well.
Chill it in the refrigerator for at least two hours so the flavors meld.
You can make this recipe ahead of time if you want as well.
If you are making it as sandwiches, slice the croissants (or bread of your choosing) just prior to serving and spoon the chicken salad with grapes onto the sandwich.
Then serve immediately.
