Odd Chicken Tastiness

This was kind of an odd recipe. Most chicken salads are munchable on their own with no bread needed. This one....not so much. It was really good as a sandwich but alone. Eh.

Parmesan Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Source: Easy Family Food Magazine 1st Quarter 2009 - page 23

1/2 cup light mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons snipped fresh basil
2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion (2)
3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
salt and ground black pepper
12 slices whole wheat bread

1. For dressing, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice and basil. Set aside.

2. For salad, in a medium bowl, combine chicken, Parmesan, green onion, and celery. Pour dressing over chicken mixture; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately or cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours. Serve chicken salad on toasted wheat bread. Makes 6 sandwiches.
