Maureen’s Special Chicken Salad Sandwiches


I have had a variety of chicken salad sandwiches at different places over the years.  I combined things I liked from several and made up my own.  Many chicken salads that I really like have almonds or other nuts in them, but hubby is allergic.  This sandwich allows me to put nuts in mine and leave his plain.  I made this recently for a picnic and they really traveled well. I thought I had lettuce for these sandwiches but I didn’t so the photos won’t show lettuce.
