Chicken Salad Sandwich

 We feel zero shame in saying that we don’t always brown bag it.

 It’s hard to be an adult. Sometimes we cannot believe that anyone on the planet has time to spend the day at the office, commute, make sure your plants/pets/children are clean and watered, put food in your face— potentially feeding others, maybe have a social life or deskank your house, AND still possess the forethought, motivation, clean pans, and stocked fridge necessary to make the next day’s lunch.

Leftovers make us more likely to save the cash of running to the deli next door, but present the problem of being boring and easy to forget in the fridge. The secret we’ve found to successfully taking your lunch to work is to make something that’s exciting— and working with a recipe that’s half done before you even started.

Chicken salad is tasty, nutrient-diverse, and impossibly satisfying. You can make a batch big enough to keep it in the fridge for four days with totally minimal effort— and not too many dishes. When you short cut it by using store bought rotisserie chicken, it is one hundred percent idiot proof. And probably more delicious.

 

Chicken Salad Sandwich

  • 2 cups Grapes
  • 4 stalks Celery
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme
  • A Handful of Fresh Parsley
  • ½ Rotisserie Chicken
  • ¼ cup Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • Lots of Black Pepper
  • ¼ cup Pistachioes
  • Good, sexy, crusty Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread, cut in fat slices
  • Lettuce, of your choosing

Grab a big cutting board. Wash your Celery and Grapes, cut into bite size pieces; roughly chop the Parsley and Thyme. Set this produce aside in a large bowl with the Pistachios.

Pull, chop, shred, or otherwise remove the Chicken from its bones. This is the only time we will ever recommend you lose its skin. Because Ew.

Add the Chicken, Yogurt, Mayonnaise, Soy, and Pepper, being sure to mix thoroughly. If things look too dry, add another squirt of Mayo or dollop of Yogurt.

Park it in the fridge overnight in individual portions, and bring your Bread and Lettuce separately.

    Man, this looks so good, though I might try using just Greek yoghurt. Mayo is so not your friend.
