Pick up a rotisserie chicken from the market, and this Herbed Chicken Salad Sandwich is a snap. That said, if you make the chicken salad a day or so ahead, the flavors will marry nicely as the filling chills.
Mix and Match: Try on a wedge of focaccia, and toast in a grill pan for a chicken salad panini. Or for a sweet touch, try on toasted cinnamon-raisin sandwich bread.
Mix and Match: Try also on a toasted Kaiser roll. Or pile high onto a toasted boule slice for an open-faced, knife-and-fork version.
Mix and Match: Crunch is key with the bread, but you can sub in a crusty baguette.
Mix and Match: Wrap the filling inside a whole-grain flatbread or piece of naan.
To brown-bag, pack sandwich components separately—the leaves and the cheese; a mixture of the dressing and pepper; and the toasted bagel. For the vegetarians in your crew, choose salad dressing that doesn't contain anchovies.
Mix and Match: Toss lettuce, cheese, pepper, and dressing together; tuck into a pita or a whole-wheat flatbread.
This spread has a similar flavor and texture to classic Southern pimiento cheese, but with far less fat and salt. Add some baked chips, cut-up vegetables, or a small salad for a nice lunch, or try the spread on crackers as an hors d'oeuvre at your next party.View Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Spread Sandwiches
