Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe for Tea party, Picnic or Brunch

Step by step recipe of chicken salad sandwiches with photos.

I have packed these sandwiches for years and years in many tea parties, brunches picnics and  journeys. In fact, all my picnic buddies have tasted these sandwiches at least once. And these sandwiches are crowd pleaser, I tell you. Just freeze them and they can make delicious frozen sandwiches that would last fresh up to 36  hours on travel in ice box or near Air Conditioner. And these chicken salad sandwich are far better than store-bought. Apart from that these are great for school lunch box, or tea party and kids really love it.

The crunch of vegetable, the aroma of cilantro and the spice of chili slices midst of sweet and sour juices will make you wanting more and more. My other tea party recipes are Frozen Paratha Roll Pie, Vegetable Bread Pie Qeema Cutlets (soft and juicy), Chicken Nuggets.

  2.  Next mix chicken and sauce together, this mix stays well in fridge for a week.

Assembling for Sandwich
  1. First mix all vegetable in a bowl.

  2. To make a few sandwiches, mix some chicken spread and vegetables in equal quantity. Spread a thick layer on a bread slice. Add salad leaf and serve cold.
  3. You can mix all vegetable with chicken sauce right away if planning to use all spread within two hours. (After mixing vegetable, the vegetables release water and spread turns runny and losses spreadibility, so mixing vegetable before serving works best).

    Hi, thanks for the amazing recipe..
    I want to make these sandwiches a night before our picnic. So what to do to make sure the vegetables would not release water while they are in fridge and the sandwitches would taste fresh the next day.

      Hi thanks a lot.
      Make sandwiches and store in fridge. Any water released by veggie will be soaked by bread. You can pack each sandwich in cling wrap and they’ll be fresh. So no need to worry, I’ve tried many times.
      If incase you plan to take sandwich spread and bread with you and make sandwich on picnic spot. (That’s when spread can turn runny.) Then pour sauce in your container and top with vegetables. DO NOT MIX. Mix on the spot and make sandwiches.
      Enjoy your picnic.

    I love sandwiches.. and this is awesome…👍

  4. I added some slivered almonds, and when I seasoned the chicken, I seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
