Chicken Sandwich Hawaiian

on May 7, 2019

Today’s recipe for Chicken Sandwich Hawaiian comes from one of grandma’s old church cookbooks. When I read this recipe, I immediately thought of using it for nice little tea sandwiches that would be perfect for a nice afternoon tea on Mother’s Day. You all know how I feel about these old church cookbooks – they’re the best! Everyone puts in their favorite and/or best recipe from their years of making delicious food for their friends and family, and we all get to benefit from it! I could totally see the person who submitted this recipe had used it for just this purpose – afternoon tea. Not that you couldn’t also use a nice croissant and a bit of crunchy green lettuce to also use this as a nice lunch or for a picnic – that fits right in with my “Nothing But Easy Summer” because this recipe is absolutely nothing  but easy. A bigger sandwich and a picnic would also be nice for Mother’s Day, but I think mom would appreciate your brewing up a nice pot of her favorite tea, bringing out a tray of beautiful little tea treats (like Orange Sugar Cookies or Lemon Love Notes), and a nice plate of these delicious tea sandwiches.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Chicken Sandwich Hawaiian

Combine:

1 12-ounce can boned chicken (I used the biggest can of chicken, which was a 10-ounce can of white meat chicken)

1 cup celery, sliced

1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

1 9-ounce (or about 1 cup) crushed pineapple, well drained

1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

1/2 teaspoon salt

Chill thoroughly.

This recipe uses simple ingredients that you probably have in your cupboard and frig.

Easy to do – easy to mix up – easy to eat!

For tea sandwiches, spread the mixture between two slices of bread, cut off the crusts, and cut diagonally in half or quarters.

This recipe would also be great in a regular sandwich for lunch or a picnic – perfect!

Afternoon tea is such a special way to treat mom on her special day. You know she’ll love this. It’s not that hard to pull together and she’ll appreciate that you took the time to make is special for her. This sandwich spread is so delicious and is nothing but easy to do. Go ahead. Do it. Make the mom in your life some of this Chicken Sandwich Hawaiian!
