CHICKEN SALAD MELT SANDWICH

Posting Komentar
I absolutely love messing around with sandwiches trying to come up with something just a tad different to feed my husband for lunch. Last weekend he was working in the garden getting it ready to plant. This particular day I had just made a batch of chicken salad from a rotisserie chicken in the fridge.

When it came time to make lunch, for some odd reason my mind went back to lunch time at the restaurant I worked at when I lived in Pennsylvania. One of our most popular lunchtime sandwiches was a Tuna Melt.  

Why I was thinking tuna salad instead of chicken salad is beyond me. But then I started thinking… why can’t I switch the tuna salad for chicken salad and make a Chicken Salad Melt Sandwich?  I couldn’t think of a good reason why I couldn’t, so I did it. It was absolutely delicious and my husband loved it! So now the question is…why couldn’t I do it with ham salad? Melted cheese, ham salad…that’s another lunchtime creation waiting to happen.  Chicken Salad Melt Sandwich…Enjoy!
