Pineapple Chicken Salad Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

This makes a light enjoyable meal in the summertime, and also cut smaller, as a lovely hors d'oeuvre. Try sauteeing the chicken breast meat, (Sauteed Chicken Breasts for Salads), instead of poaching, it is much more flavorful. I usually add a little bit of finely chopped celery for a bit of crunch!

Wow! Cool and creamy without any mayonnaise! Loved the sweetness of the pineapple. I made this exactly as written, but added a little chopped onion. This would make excellent finger sandwiches for a baby shower or a fancy luncheon. Thanx for posting !
