Smoky Chicken Salad Sandwich

Maintaining and growing the business keeps me busier than ever. I often eat on the run but I still want yummy tasting food. Yesterday, I worked through the normal lunch hour and then had only a few minutes before I had to head out to class. Grabbing what I had on hand, I made this tasty gourmet tasting sandwich in about 5 minutes – and ate it in less than ten!

What You Need:

  • Shredded cooked chicken (you can use canned or fresh; I prefer fresh)
  • Chopped crunchy veggies (like celery or bell pepper)
  • Spoonful of mayonaise
  • enFuso Smoked Olive Oil
  • Artisan bread (I used a fresh baked crusty French)
  • Tomatoes or cucumbers for garnish

I had some leftover cooked chicken breasts from the night before so I pulled the meat off the bone and shredded it. Add your veggies then stir in a small amount of mayonnaise (and I mean small) and a generous drizzle of our Smoked Olive Oil. I prefer the robust (Late Harvest flavor) because the chicken and mayo already have their own sort of buttery flavor so the green flavors of the robust oil really complement it. The oil surrounds and penetrates everything, giving the sandwich plenty of moisture and making the chicken taste so rich and smoky.

Plop it on an open faced slab of artisan bread and garnish with whatever you can find in your garden (that's why I used tomatoes and cucumbers).  Then eat!

Note: to really flavor it up, drizzle any of our aged balsamic vinegar reductions over the top!
