Chicken Salad Sandwiches


I decided to try out this recipe from Allrecipes.com This is one of the best chicken salad recipes Ive ever made! I left out the water chestnuts, just because I didn't have them and also the Swiss cheese, because I forgot all about it. Still so good, with lots of yummy crunch from all the celery, grapes and onion. The spices were perfect, I didn't tweak it at all. We all loved this.
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 cups diced, cooked chicken breast meat
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups diced Swiss cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups halved green grapes
In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice.

In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, celery, green onions, water chestnuts, Swiss cheese, and grapes. Add the mayonnaise mixture, and stir to coat. Chill until serving.
