A ‘Special’ Chicken Salad Sandwich

Is it really a recipe if you are making a sandwich???

I love me a good sandwich, especially if someone else is making it. But I tend to get stuck in a rut of the same ‘ol-same ‘ol…turkey, cheese, tuna. BORING!

Last night we had company and while Chinese take-out got their mouths watering, mine…not so much. A sandwich! Once the thought entered my mind, there was no talking me out of it. But, it was supper-time (yes, I’m from the south, and yes, we call it supper. Breakfast. Dinner. Supper.) so it couldn’t be just your ordinary run of the mill dinner-time sandwich. It had to create something special.

Lo and behold- a ‘Special’ Chicken Salad Sandwich.

Ingredients (this is enough for two servings, which means that I have enough for dinner tomorrow)

2 slices of whole grain bread

1 can of chicken breast

1 boiled egg diced (i used only the white)

1/2 avocado

1 tomato sliced

1tbs fat-free cream cheese

1 small apple- diced

1 tbs mustard

salt & pepper to taste


  1. Combine chicken, diced apple, diced egg, mustard, salt & pepper in a mixing bowl.
  2. While bread is toasting, mash 1/2 of an avocado until it is a creamy consistency.
  3. Spread a generous amount of your avocado on to one piece of toast and spread the cream cheese on to the other piece.
  4. Dallop half of your chicken salad onto your toast and top it off with a couple slices of tomato.
