Creamy Smoked Chicken Salad Sandwich

We’re big fans of chicken salad sandwiches. And whenever chicken goes on sale I’ll load up and either roast the chicken on my Big Easy or toss it on my Weber Smoky Mountain smoker. We make a traditional chicken salad sandwich and sometimes, a Creole chicken salad sandwich. I recently ran across this creamy smoked chicken salad sandwich recipe.

It’s a variation on the traditional approach, adding a bit of mustard and chopped pickles. The mustard and pickles really make a big difference in the salad. A little crunch from the veggies and pickle, and a little zing from the mustard. Perfect!

I used smoked chicken breasts in our creamy smoked chicken salad sandwiches, but smoked thighs are also fantastic!
