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

"Delish & so easy. I have changed up the fruit, or omitted the pickles, added chopped radish, corn, nectarine or apple; each variation was tasty and well-received. One hint for potlucks: Serve portions on a lettuce leaf with the rolls on the side, so people who prefer low-carb or who think they're gluten-intolerant don't have to fuss with unwanted bread -- just eat the chicken salad as a wrap! Thanks Trisha, for a new go-to recipe."

"This is very similar to my recipe, which is in my head. I'm glad to have one written down to go by. I always add mango chutney to taste, and sometimes leave out the celery and sweet pickles because of this."

"Sounds good, but I would omit the curry and serve as a salad instead of on a bun."

"Just the kind of recipe I was looking for for a do-ahead sandwich tray to serve after a concert. Will definitely try this."
