Chicken salad with grapes sandwich

This chicken salad has a little of everything in it and is a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken meat.

There’s a little sweet, a little savory, a little crunch and a lot of chicken.

Have you ever tried those rotisserie chickens that are in a hot case in the grocery store?

They’re pretty tasty and an easy way to make a quick meal.

If you do buy these, or make your own whole chicken for a meal, this recipe is a perfect way to use up the leftovers.

This delicious chicken salad can be served in a sandwich, on top of a salad, on bite size pieces of french bread as an appetizer, or just by itself.
