It’s September and school is just around the corner. My kids were always excited to be back and see their friends , but not this year. As of now, we still don’t know how this school year will pan out. We’re hoping it’ll be distant learning up until this covid is out of the picture. At the end of the day, we decide whether it’s safe for our kids to be back to normal schooling. Let’s just all pray and hope for the best.

Chicken salad sandwich 2

Kids still need their snacks and lunches whether they have it at home or at school. This chicken salad is very kid-friendly and my family loves it. It’s a part of my “go-to” recipes that I always make especially when school starts. Just add some sliced fruits and veggies on the side and lunch is complete.

  • 2 chicken breasts cooked* and shredded
  • 1 cup mayo**
  • 1 hard boiled egg mashed
  • 1-2 stalks celery finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s How:

  • Place chicken breasts in a pot and fill with water, just enough to cover the chicken. Season with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns and an onion, cut in half. Bring to a boil then simmer on low until chicken is cooked through (30 minutes if it’s bone-in). Remove skin and bones then shred using 2 forks. Set aside to completely cool.
  • In a large bowl, add the cooled chicken, mayonnaise, mashed egg, celery, honey and season with ground black pepper (and salt if needed). Mix thoroughly and serve over toast.


*I used bone-in skin-on chicken breasts weighing almost 2 pounds. You can also use leftover roasted chicken
**Adjust the amount of mayonnaise according to the creaminess that you prefer
***You can add some raisins, halved grapes, well-drained chopped pineapples or chopped onions if you prefer. Just adjust the amount of mayonnaise used
