I love Paula and she can cook for me anytime! I cut the recipe down for 1 sandwich. This chicken salad is heavenly (and messy) lol! I did leave off the thousand Island (never did like it) but followed the rest of the directions. Afraid with this calorie count I won't have another (maybe in a few months). Thanks for sharing Sheribeth. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.

Just delicious--but alas, messy. Oh, well, if you can't bathe in your food, what fun is that? Lovely flavours and love the swiss with the thousand island. Made for football, 2009.

I thought I left my review for this earlier this morning, but it hasn't shown up. This sandwich is great. I agree with another poster, the sandwich is messy, but it is worth it because of the taste. I loved the combinations...I wouldn't change a thing! Made for football tag!
