Step 1: Prepare the Chicken
Start by cooking your chicken if you don’t already have cooked chicken on hand. You can either poach it, grill it, or even use rotisserie chicken for convenience. Once cooked, let it cool, and then dice it into small, bite-sized pieces.
Step 2: Mix the Salad
In a large bowl, combine the diced chicken, chopped celery, finely chopped red onion, sweet pickle relish, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard. Stir everything together until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Feel free to adjust the amount of mayonnaise and mustard to achieve your desired creaminess and tanginess.
Step 3: Assemble the Sandwiches
Take your favorite bread slices and, if you like, lightly toast them for some extra texture. Then, spoon a generous portion of the chicken salad mixture onto half of the slices. If you prefer, add some lettuce leaves and tomato slices for added freshness.
Step 4: Serve and Enjoy
Top the chicken salad-covered slices with the remaining bread slices to create sandwiches. You can cut them in halves or quarters for easier handling. Serve your Chicken Salad Sandwiches with some crispy potato chips, a side salad, or a bowl of soup for a complete and satisfying meal.
