I used to feel like the sandwich king but I cannot own that one because of JEFF MAURO.  I always made myself a sandwich every Sunday.

I got away from that idea but this Homemade Chicken Salad brings me back to those days.  I hope it brings you back to your favorite deli.  I used to go out for lunch all the time before I started all my cooking.  One of my favorite chicken salad sandwiches was at PERRY’S DELI here in Chicago.  I provided a youtube link from an old Chicago TV show so you could see how big these sandwiches were.

Homemade Chicken Salad

My chicken salad is quite basic.  I love the spice mixture I used for this recipe.  I used adobo seasoning for my salt.  Of course, I used celery salt.  Instead of traditional black pepper, I used lemon pepper.  It is my new favorite spice.  I also added a real good grainy mustard to the mayo.

The other trick in this chicken salad I learned from Ina.  We could all learn a lot from Ina.  She always started with skin on, bone in chicken breasts.  I spiced them liberally with the above referenced spices.  The breasts are baked in the oven and cooled.  The chicken has so much flavor from the spices, skins and bones.

I have made quite a variety chicken salad sandwiches.  A couple of my favorites include a SRIRACHA VERSION and a CURRY VERSION.  My recipe for this Homemade Chicken Salad is pretty traditional.  I added red onions as well as the celery.  I like the additional crunch and sweetness the onions provide.
