Kids Chicken Salad Sushi Rolls - Rachael Ray

"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."

Ready In:




  • 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.

The most defining trait in my life is that I am a mother to two wonderful boys (Tyler, 20 and Zayden, 9). I live in the little college town of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. It is the most wonderful place to live as it's nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and along the beautiful Susquehanna River. Seeing that we live in Central Pennsylvania, our family is also a bunch of HARDCORE Penn State Nittany Lion fans! We are...PENN STATE! I was lucky enough to be given tickets to see Joe Paterno win his 400th game as the head coach of the football team. I cried like I did when my children were born. The other love of my life is cooking. I didn't really start trying to cook until I was 20, but believe me I have made up for lost time! I absolutely adore baking and I do it whenever I can. I love making Christmas cookies and I have begun hosting our extended families at our home for Thanksgiving and Easter dinners. So far so good. I love because it allows me to expand my culinary skills and my recipe box with ideas from other people like me. There is something for everyone and I have been a loyal member since 2005. I hope you enjoy my recipes and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
