Chicken Salad Ciabatta Sandwich


This is a quick fix sandwich, very simple to make and very apt for a brown bag for lunch, dinner or just a snack!
Moist and juicy chicken breast, creamy mayonnaise, fresh and crunchy celery, nutty walnuts along with tarty,sweet grapes on a fresh warm Ciabatta bread make this sandwich absolutely lip smacking!
I chose Ciabatta bread for this sandwich, but you could use any bread of your choice.


Makes 4 sandwich

Ingredients
4 - Ciabatta bread (Square shaped cut in the middle)
1 1/2 C - Cooked Chicken breast
1 stick (approx 3/4 C) - Fresh celery (Chopped)
1 C - Mayonnaise
1/4 C - Red Grapes
2 Tbsp - Walnuts (Chopped)
Pepper

Directions
Mix the chicken breast, mayonnaise, celery, walnuts and pepper. Toss in the grapes and mix. Divide the mixture into 4 parts and spread the chicken salad on bread.

Note and Tips
* The best way to cook Chicken Breast is to rub it with some salt, pepper and garlic powder and bake in the oven until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165F. Once cooked, cover it with aluminium foil and allow the meat to rest for at least 10-15 mins before cutting it. Cut the chicken into cubes and use it for your recipe. Store the rest of the meat in Ziploc bags in the freezer. This way you will always have cooked chicken in stock and you can add it to all your favourite recipes.
* You can use regular, fat-free, or light mayo for this recipe. Homemade mayo will be the best.
* You can toast the bread with some olive oil and then make the sandwich. Don't toast the bread if you are planning to pack it for a later lunch as toasted bread will be very chewy if not consumed immediately.
