Apricot-Pistachio Chicken Salad Sandwiches Recipe

Apricot-Pistachio Chicken Salad Sandwiches Recipe

I ordered an entrée similar to this at the local museum café and liked it so much I decided to make something similar. At the museum it was served as a filling for a sandwich made with lettuce, tomato and thinly sliced red onion. I tend to serve it as a salad during the summer. It’s really good on a hot day.
