Chicken Salad Party Sandwiches Recipe

Chicken Salad Party Sandwiches Recipe

My famous chicken salad arrives at the party chilled in a plastic container. When it’s time to set out the food, I stir in the pecans and assemble the sandwiches. They’re great for buffet-style potlucks. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
