Sandwiches make quick easy satisfying meals on days you just don’t want to fuss in the kitchen! We normally eat sandwiches at least twice a week in our home and I always try and make them as healthy as possible by cutting out extra empty calorie fats, sugars, or processed meats. For holding all the ingredients together, I enjoy using Arnold Bread products, because not only do they taste delicious but they are packed with whole grain goodness. In fact, the breads contain so many whole grains you can actually see them! Plus, the breads are cholesterol free and do not contain any High Fructose Corn Syrup making them a great foundation to any sandwich ingredients. Here is more info about Arnold products per manufacturer.

Healthy Creative Spin on Chicken Salad Sandwich
I took a healthy creative spin on the old chicken salad sandwich classic to enter the contest! It is thought to be that the first American form of chicken salad was first served by Town Meats in Wakefield, Rhode Island, in 1863 by Liam Gray. He mixed his leftover chicken with mayonnaise, tarragon, and grapes and the sandwich became a huge popular hit. Over the years there has been many versions of the delicious sandwich recipe, yet I never found one I liked. Either the chicken salad came out too dry it just about choked you or it contained so much fattening mayo that you were better off eating a large greasy big mac! With that being said, I decided to tweak a few different recipes and came up with my own version. The Greek non-fat yogurt and fat free mayo combo gives the chicken salad a nice creamy texture with none of the extra fat. AND by using the meat from a rotisserie chicken you are getting all the flavor of moist delicious roasted chicken to go along with the sweetness of the dried cranberries and green grapes. But the real secret to the sandwich is the grilled apples! The flavor combination is out of this world good! Give the recipe a try and let me know what you think. I know some people are not huge walnut fans, so try adding sliced almonds instead or just omit the nuts from the recipe.
- 3 cups chopped rotisserie chicken, skin removed
- 1 large Gala apple, cored and sliced into thin rings
- ⅓ cup diced celery
- ¼ cup diced red onion
- ⅓ cup dried cranberries
- ⅓ cup chopped walnuts
- 15 green seedless grapes, halved
- ½ cup Kraft fat free mayo (found it tastes the best)
- ½ cup Greek non-fat yogurt
- 1 tbsp. yellow mustard
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ¼ tsp salt
- 12 slices of Arnold Whole Grains Oatnut Bread
- In large bowl combine chicken, celery, red onion, cranberries, walnuts, and grapes. Gently mix until combined.
- Mix Greek yogurt, mayo, mustard, and spices together in medium separate bowl.
- Pour dressing mix over chicken mixture and carefully stir (do not crush grapes) to coat. Refrigerate until cold.
- Meanwhile, lightly spray apple slices with natural cooking spray and grill for about 2 minutes.
- Assemble sandwich by spreading about 1 cup of chicken mixture on one slice bread, layer with two slices of grilled apple, and top with another slice of bread.
