Question Chicken Salad Sandwich Help Please

I made some chicken salad for sandwiches from some left over chicken. Added feta cheese, mayo, celery, S & P, a little olive oil, dash of thyme. I think that is all. Thought I could make a recipe up and it is not bad except it is very dry. Will try whatever you lovely ladies and gents think including a whole different recipe. Thank you. Betsy.

I mix white and dark meat, scallions or red onion (just a tad), celery, maybe some bell pepper, sometimes sweet peas and alot of salt and pepper. Mix it up with a fork to break up the meat a little. Only enough mayo to just coat everything or I'll get a stomach ache. lol

EDIT: I made the tuna salad on the side of the Melba toast box, came out awesome. Tuna, celery, red onion, pickle, mayo salt/pepper.

And let's assume you are starting with chicken that was moist to begin with....

Me, I would add more mayo. I love a lot of mayo in my chicken, tuna or egg salad.

I would add a little more mayo too. Personally, I also add sweet pickle relish to my chicken and tuna salad which adds a little moisture as well. I sometimes also add a small squeeze of mustard for a little color and that subtle vinegar bite mustard has.

Mayo, Mustard, or a combination of the two.... Maybe some Dijonnaise...Any of these could be thinned a bit with pickle or olive juice...or maybe a squeeze of lemon.

Have Fun!

I love chicken salad. Like it with celery, green onions (scallions) sometimes halved grapes in it, sometimes hb eggs. Like a mayo-based dressing with Dijon mustard added, but not too heavy a dressing.

When I was catering, we used to do a Mango Chicken Salad that was delicious.

I'm guessing you didn't add enough mayo to your dressing.

Hmmm a little pickle juice or lemon juice might help, but I wouldn't add extra olive oil.......

Looks like pickle relish is the answer. The chicken was very moist the night I cooked it, but yes it did seem rather dry in the sandwich. Thanks for all your help. Betsy.

Question Jason's ______

Maybe a little pineapple ? Jason's Deli (not really a fan) puts that in their chicken salad & I swear that's the only good thing in the place. Anyway, I think it adds a nice touch - everything above sounds tasty, too. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

That's the kind I make, too. It's just chicken, slivered almonds, crushed pineapple and mayo. Yum!
