Chicken Salad Sandwiches

My kids love chicken salad sandwiches.  My mom had given me this incredible recipe a few years ago and since my move I have searched and cannot find it anywhere!!  I'm actually in total shock I did not share it here with all of you it was THAT GOOD!  The other day when they were begging for these sandwiches I created a new version and it is pretty close to my mom's.  I splurged and bought croissants which made it feel a little more fancy.   It was a hit and tasted oh so delicious!
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
2 1/2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
1 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced onion
1 1/2 cup grapes, cut in half
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise, whichever your preference
3 teaspoons Italian Dressing
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl adding more seasoning to taste if needed.  Place on your favorite bread.
*The nice thing about this recipe is you can change it up. Sometimes I like to use diced apples instead of grapes or cashews instead of almonds.  Find your favorite combination.
Sometimes I just like to eat it with out the bread too!
My daughter just peeked over my shoulder to see what I was doing and her reaction was, 
" I can't believe they weren't already on here. They are delicious!!"
MMMMMM...this may be dinner tonight, that is if I can wait than long!
Enjoy!

  1. This looks absolutely delicious. I imagine I would eat it straight out of the bowl! (Although everything is better on a croissant!)

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
