This was on an episode of Rachael Ray and I'm posting for safe keeping. It sounds like something that my adventurous and my picky eater would enjoy. It looks like a lot of steps, but it's really simple and the chicken salad can be made ahead.
- 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1⁄4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1⁄3 cup diced apple
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- 4 slices whole wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon light mayonnaise
- 2 large carrots, julienned
- 1 small cucumber, julienned
Directions See How It's Made
- Place 1 chicken breast in a small sauté or saucepan in enough water to cover by an inch.
- Bring to boil, then reduce and barely simmer, partially covered, 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let sit in water 10 minutes.
- When cool enough to handle, cut into chunks and pulse in processor until finely chopped. This should yield about 1/2 cup.
- In a medium-size bowl, combine chicken with diced apple, 1/4 cup mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. (This is basic version; can add any desired seasonings.) Stir until thoroughly combined.
- To make 1 roll: trim crusts from 1 slice sandwich bread (need spongy supermarket-style bread here; not artisanal-style with big or coarse crumb).
- Using a rolling pan, “roll” slice out a bit, just to flatten and soften.
- Lightly spread with about 1/2 teaspoon mayo, then thin layer of chicken salad (about 2 tablespoons).
- Top with single layer of julienned carrots (thin shavings using julienne peeler) and cucumber.
- Starting at one short end, roll up like a sushi roll.
- Repeat with 3 more slices of bread to make 4 rolls total.
- Chill for 10 minutes; then cut crosswise into smaller rolls.
