Parmesan cheese and dill make this the most incredible chicken salad I’ve ever tasted. For the no-cook version, use canned chicken. These sandwiches are a simple entree to serve at parties, showers or picnics.—Jaclyn Bell, Logan, Utah

    Is the Parmesan cheese the kind you sprinkle from a can or the shredded you buy in a package?

    I use canned Chicen breast and sometimes include Parmesan and a little Romano cheese. It is always a hit. I chop up cashews with a pampered chef chopper. This sandwich is great for special events.. Adults and kids love it. It is always a hit wherever I take it.

    Where does all the sodium in this recipe come from?Sounds so good, though!

    THIS is the sandwich my lunch has been craving! Delicious and something different from the plain meat/bread combo I typically have. This recipe is also good with turkey instead of chicken - gives it a very different flavor, but still has a kick.
