6 servings (serving size: 2 sandwiches)

You can prepare the chicken salad up to a day ahead and refrigerate; assemble the sandwiches just before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1

Trim crusts from bread slices; cut slices into triangles.

Step 2

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Combine sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add sugar mixture to pan, scraping pan to loosed browned bits. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Combine onion mixture, remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, chicken, and remaining ingredients. Place about 2 tablespoons chicken mixture on each of 12 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices.

This is delicious and very much like a "Coronation Chicken" salad recipe I've been trying to duplicate for years (although there are many variations of that). I oven poached 3 boneless, skinless breasts and allowed them to cool in the cooking liquid (keeps them moist). After the onion mixture cooled I whisked in all the ingredients and then added the chicken. Because I may have had more chicken than called for, it was a bit on the dry side but I added a little plain yogurt. I will serve this tomorrow to lunch guests on CL's wonderful Rosemary-Walnut bread and a local restaurant's Tomato Bisque. It's a keeper!

I made this for a baby shower and the guests really liked it. It was easy, and I would definitely make it again.
