These uniquely flavored chicken sandwiches, with their sweet-tangy-tart combo of ingredients, are absolutely delectable. “Enjoy this recipe as it is or, even better, use a panini press and fix it as a normal sandwich—it works fabulously.” —Christina Falco Covington, Louisiana

- 3 celery ribs, finely chopped
- 1 cup fat-free mayonnaise

"I've never cared much for Chicken Salad but this I truly have to say it was delicious! I took Christina's advise and used my Panini Press-even the kids loved it."
