What is your favorite sandwich? My new favorite is my Chai Bliss Chicken Salad Sandwich. I’ve always loved a good chicken salad sandwich. I used to pick up an Arby’s chicken salad sandwich when ever I was out and about, running errands. Now that I’m gluten free, that’s no longer an option. This recipe is so easy, delicious and healthy that I don’t think I’ll ever miss the old chicken salad sandwich I used to buy there.
I used a 1/4 cup of mayo in this recipe. If you want to save even more calories you can substitute plain yogurt in it’s place. I’m not a calorie counting person. I figure if I’m eating pretty good 90% of the time a little something here and there isn’t going to hurt me.
The almonds I used in this recipe are divine all on there own. They’re called “Olomomo Chai Bliss Almonds,” and they are tasty little things. You can pick them up at your local natural food store in the snack section. I crushed them up and put them in my chai bliss chicken salad sandwich. If you can’t find them, use regular almonds and cardamom with a little cinnamon spice to add a nice chai flavor to your sandwich.
You can use any gluten free bread that you buy, or bake yourself. I listed “Three Bakers 7 Grain Bread” because I love the flavor and texture. Feel free to use whatever you have on hand. You can also use either grilled chicken, or canned chicken. I used canned chicken because it was quick and easy for me at the time, and I was hungry. I spread kefir cheese on my bread before adding the chicken salad. It tastes like cream cheese only healthier for you. Enjoy!
