Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make my chicken salad sandwich in advance?

Chicken salad sandwich is best served immediately after whipping up your spread and after being chilled in the fridge for 4 to 6 hours! But if you want to make the chicken and dressing beforehand you can make it days in advance, just be sure to store it in the fridge right away if you’re not using it. This way the chicken salad’s flavors get a chance to further blend, deepen, and enhance.

What other ingredients can I add to my chicken salad?

For a more filling sandwich, you can add your chicken salad spread over crispy bacon strips, tomatoes, and lettuce. Adding in sliced avocados, sprouts and cucumber also make a healthier and tastier chicken salad sandwich. Feel free to add different flavors to your salad by mixing in cranberries, apple slices, nuts, and herbs like oregano, rosemary, and thyme. Many ingredients go well with our chicken salad spread so go ahead and make this chicken salad your own!
