When I was in high school, I was allowed $5 per week for lunch money. No, I didn’t live during the Depression. Let’s just say frugality runs in my veins. Take it up with my dad.
Due to my limited budget, I learned to compensate by packing a lunch. Pops didn’t mind springing for groceries. Thankfully, my girlfriends brown bagged it as well. We enjoyed creating all sorts of yummy sandwiches. While I didn’t have this recipe back then, I think it’s probably one that some of us would have enjoyed. (Jen doesn’t do mayo.)
It’s a FishFamily favorite. Hope you enjoy it!
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 ribs celery, chopped
1/2 c. cheddar cheese cubes
1/2 c. mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
6 onion rolls
6 lettuce leaves
In large mixing bowl, gently combine chicken, celery and cheese. In small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill weed and salt and pepper. Pour dressing over chicken mixture and stir gently to combine. Chill. Divide mixture amongst onion rolls and top with lettuce leaves and the tops of the buns.
For a boxed lunch, I usually pack the salad in a plastic container with the lettuce and rolls in plastic bags. This keeps the sandwich from getting soggy as it sits.
