It was about 7 years ago on a business trip to Corpus Christi, TX that I had my first chicken salad sandwich. Food is so much a part of our familial culture and tradition, that something so very common to some can actually serve as a novelty to someone else, and that was me on that hot day in Corpus. Since then, I’ve incorporated it into the repertoire.
- 1 lb. cooked, boneless/ skinless chicken breasts (or rotisserie chicken)
- 3/4 cups mayonnaise
- 3 tbsp. minced celery
- 3 tbsp. minced onion
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- pinch of S&P
Chop chicken; set aside. In a medium size bowl, add the mayonnaise, minced celery and onion, brown sugar, garlic powder, and S&P. Cream together. Mix in the chopped chicken and stir to combine ingredients. Add to bread or sliced croissants.
