Pineapple Chicken Salad Sandwiches

These sandwiches are always welcome at lunchtime around our house. Sweet pineapple and crunchy pecans are nice additions to ordinary chicken salad. —Carol Alexander, Midland, Michigan

    I altered this recipe to fit what I had and what we like. We did not have and pecans but we did have slivered almonds so those went in as did some craisins and a chopped granny smith apple and curry powder. We were running low on mayo so I added extra pineapple, I left out the garlic salt, onion salt, pickle relish and onion. Then I served this on freshly baked potato rolls. My son had 2 and loved them. I liked the crunch of the apple and the sweetness of the craisins and pineapple. I may make this again but I would like to have more mayo next time.

    I didn't have paprika in the house as I ran out. I made this recipe without it. It is delicious!!!!

    These were delicious. My husband loved the sweetness of the pineapple. I omitted the pecans as I used a nutty bread for the sandwiches.

    I used 2 large cans of chicken instead and it tasted great. Simple to make, too!Omitted nuts for my daughter and added extra celery for more crunch.

    A wonderful mix of flavors! Since I used canned chicken, recommend a little less mayo, but otherwise has been a hit with my crew!
