Lunch is the trickiest meal for me because I feel like it's the one with the least amount of options. Parker and I could eat cereal every day for the rest of our lives, so breakfast is easy. I could go through cookbooks and Pinterest and find hundreds of delicious dinner recipes at the drop of a hat, but lunch is just the abandoned step child of meals. I am constantly trying to find something new in an effort to mix it up. Chicken salad has been a favorite lately, so when I saw this Chick-fil-a copycat recipe, I knew I had to try it. Anything that somewhat resembles Chick-fil-a has to be good, right? That was my logic, and it paid off, because this recipe made for the perfect lunch! Parker and I really loved it, so it's continued to make an appearance throughout the summer!
Ingredients (makes 2 sandwiches):
1 cup cooked chicken, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1 hard boiled egg, diced
2 Tbsp sweet relish
1/3 cup mayonnaise
salt & pepper, to taste
4 slices of wheat bread, toasted if you prefer
1. Mix your chicken, celery, hard boiled egg, mayonnaise, relish, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
2. Top 2 slices of bread with lettuce. Divide chicken salad evenly over the lettuce, and top the remaining piece of bread.
We arem't reinventing the wheel here, so the directions are about as basic as you can get. I don't know about you, but I am all about basic when searching for a quick lunch recipe!
