Chili Chicken Salad Sandwich
Chili Waldorf Sandwich with a kick of chili powder, green apples, walnuts, and red onions
Author: trisha haas
What You Need
  • 1 pound Poached Chicken chopped
  • 2 pieces of celery hearts sliced
  • 3/4 granny smith apple cut up in tiny squares
  • 1/2 small red onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup of walnuts toasted and chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup Hellmans Mayo
Instructions
  1. Poach your chicken in 3 cups of water on the stove. I personally use chicken strips to make it easier. Once done, cool and cut up in bite sized pieces.
  2. Toast your walnuts on medium heat for about 3 minutes, constantly moving them. Remove from skillet.
  3. Slice up your onions, apples, celery and toss in a bowl with your chicken and walnuts.
  4. Add 1/4 tsp chili powder. You can add more to taste if you like, but be careful not to go overboard. Feel free to substitute with Curry instead.
  5. Combine together with 1 cup of Mayo. I use Hellmans and refuse to use anything else. For a healthier option, you can use plain Greek yogurt.
  6. Toast your favorite bread and add your chicken salad to it. We used Sourdough.
Notes

I personally like my chicken salad a little more on the creamy side, so I add Mayo to taste. Remember just a spoonful extra at a time till you get your favorite consistency. You can add...but taking back is a whole other story!
