Chicken Salad Melts

 Chicken Salad Melts
Ruth Peterson from Jenison, Michigan uses up leftover chicken to create a creamy spread from open-faced sandwiches. "They're delicious, satisfying and inexpensive," she notes. "You can tuck the filling into buns instead, wrap them in foil and heat them in the oven for a few minutes."
4 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 10 min.


  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 2 tablespoons each chopped green pepper, onion and ripe olives
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 4 sandwich rolls


  • In a bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, cheese, green pepper,
  • onion, olives and relish. Split rolls in half; place cut side up on
  • a greased baking sheet. Spoon about 1/4 cup chicken salad on each
  • roll half. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes or until
