    To make a good chicken salad sandwich-- purchase croissants rolls-- fill with salad-- wrap in plastic and stick in fridge, the salad soaks into the roll and comes out tasting scrumptious. A little curry adds zing!

    I usually just use chicken, celery, sweet relish and mayonnaise.

    Sometimes to dress it up, I add crushed pineapple with a bit of the juice.

    It's hot here in MI too! I serve this often, always a hit!

    Package broccoli slaw (Mann's brand here) in produce dept.
    Cooked and cooled coarse cut chicken breast meat
    Red grapes
    Cashew nuts (I use salted)
    Bottled slaw dressing, I use Marzetti's light or a poppy seed

    Combine in desired quantities to taste. Chill and serve with a roll or muffin. Popular with women also. Even my husband loves this, and he's a "meat eater"! Enjoy!

    1
    1 cup mayonnaise
    4 oz cream cheese, softened
    6 tablespoons milk
    6 cups cooked chicken, diced
    1 cup finely diced celery
    1 cups grapes, halved or quartered
    Pecans, to taste, optional

    Blend mayonnaise and cream cheese. Add pecans and mix well. Set aside.

    Toss chicken, celery, grapes, and nuts with mayonnaise mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Refrigerate.

    Notes:

    I usually use 8 oz cream cheese and about 1 cups mayonnaise, then just add enough extra milk to thin a little.

    I always use lots of grapes.

    Any of the above recipes made with celery, nuts, grapes and real mayo is a hit around here.

    My answer to hot weather is to buy a rotisseried chicken from the grocery store - you know they are fresh because they are made every day and all you have to do is cut up the meat!

    I love Curry Chicken salad, but I add more curry powder (about a tsp) and add drained pineapple chunks, sliced banana (added just before serving). Coconut adds a great flavor to it if you have any. I don't use the Season All, just may, milk(cocnut milk is good, but don't add the flaked coconut)and curry powder. Any fruit you have on hand is good
