Although we rarely eat out, we sometimes love going to the beach after the crowds have left for the day and have stopped by Subway a few times to grab a grinder. One of my favorite’s on their menu right now is their Orchard Chicken Salad Sub.

I have found it to be a great way to use leftover chicken and I now make it myself buy with lots of extra apples and raisins. The kids always eat my sandwich after I only get one bite in so now I know to make enough for four.

Ingredients (4 servings in small roll)
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1 stalk celery, minced
1 golden delicious apple, diced
1 chicken breast, cooked and diced
4-6 Tablespoons light mayonnaise (adjust to your preferred texture)
1 handful of lettuce
4 small rolls, split

Mix ingredients from raisins to mayonnaise in a bowl. Place some lettuce on bottom bun, scoop chicken salad on top, place top of bun on and enjoy.

I love chicken salad sandwiches, but I wasn’t a fan of Subway’s – I think because it is not fresh and the crispy ingredients are not as crisp after it has sat there for a while. I love your combination. I also like to add cucumber, bell pepper and sunflower seeds.

Love your addition ideas Crystal.

This is a great recipe, and I’m sure I’ll use it frequently. Like Crystal, I was disappointed when I tried Subway’s version. The ingredients weren’t fresh. I might add a dash of curry to change it up a bit.

That looks amazing! I wonder how it would taste if I substituted craisins for raisins. Have you ever tried it?

Yes, Katie. In fact, that was my intention and I was shocked to find we were out so I dug out the bag of plain dried cranberries (don’t tell the kids)

This looks delicious! I didn’t know Subway had this variety of chicken salad.
