I combined a number of my favorite things to come up with this tasty sandwich. This is a great use for leftover chicken. Makes a great summer supper, or hearty lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 12 avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoons onions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons pimentos, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 tablespoons celery, minced (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (more if desired)
  • 12 teaspoon lemon juice (bottled is fine here, but fresh is even nicer)
  • 2 -5 drops hot pepper sauce
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 sandwich rolls, such as french rolls, sub rolls, ciabatta
  • 2 leaves lettuce


  1. Combine all ingredients except rolls and lettuce in a medium bowl.
  2. Slice rolls in half, and toast if desired. Lay lettuce leaves on bottom halves of rolls, and divide chicken salad between them. Place roll tops on sandwich.

WOW Diane, what a wonderful chicken salad sandwich this is!!! Made a few substitutions: NO onions so used onion powder, no celery so used fresh minced lovage leaves, and no pimento so used the last of our fresh garden tomatoes. I also added a few fresh snipped marjoram leaves and skipped the Tabasco this time. DH and I thank you for a wonderful lunch that we both enjoyed and will certainly make again. :) Becky

Delish! I just doubled the amount of onions and celery because I like the crunch. I used a teaspoon of chili paste instead of the hot sauce. Very pretty and tasty salad.
