 Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwiches
I became tired of traditional chicken sandwiches, so I came up with this recipe. Tarragon provides a nice subtle seasoning, while sunflower seeds add extra crunch.
8 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 15 min.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/3 cup sunflower kernels
  • 8 croissants or rolls, split
  • Lettuce leaves


  • In a large bowl, combine the first three ingredients. Stir in
  • chicken, celery and tarragon. Just before serving, add sunflower
  • seeds. Line croissants with lettuce; top with 1/2 cup chicken salad.
  • Yield: 8 servings.
