I use sweet bell pepper relish to add a little zing to this recipe, but feel free to use sweet pickle relish or a dill pickle relish. Either one will give the salad nice flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups cooked chicken (diced)
  • 1/2 cup celery (diced)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons finely chopped purple onion
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise (or more, to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sweet pepper relish (or to taste)
  • Optional: dash Cajun or Creole seasoning blend
  • Dash salt (or to taste)
  • Sandwich rolls or sliced bread for 6 to 8 sandwiches

How to Make It

  1. Combine chicken with celery, onion, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, lemon juice, pepper, relish, seasoning, and salt.
  2. Add more mayonnaise, as needed.
  3. Fill sandwich rolls or sliced bread with the mixture.
