Updated Chicken Salad Sandwich

Does anyone have any ideas for an updated chicken salad sandwich? I'd like to make something very unique, but delicious.

  1. Do you like curry? I make a curry chicken salad sandwich with halved grapes and toasted sliced almonds. Heat the curry powder slightly so it's not raw tasting and mix with mayo and yogurt. Add green onion if you like. Also a little grated orange peel and ginger if you have some on hand. Very good.

      Thanks for the reply, Glencora.

      I like the idea of the orange peel and ginger!

        On a similar vein, I mix the mayo/yogurt with curry and a little mango chutney. Toss with chicken, celery, a little onion, dried cranberries and pistachios.

      2. This chicken salad with grapes and walnuts is good:

        Also, this recipe is for curried turkey salad, but I've made it with chicken and it's really good:

        1. Thinly sliced chicken, peach preserves and brie.

          1. I don't know if this is unique but it is delicious with or w/o the bread: chicken/chopped celery/chopped shallot/toasted pecans/dried cranberries/mayo.

              I do something very similar... white chicken, chopped celery, dried cranberries, pecans, apple cider vinegar, honey, and poppy seeds, S &P.

            2. I made a really good one last night, mayo, dijon, celery, chives and sliced granny smith apples. I am not that familiar with chicken salad though, so I don't know howunique it would be.
