I have never had Chick-Fil-A’s chicken salad, but this vegetarian version is great! I have made several versions of a chicken salad using vegetarian chicken, but I think the secret to this one is the relish! That really did add a little zing to it. Husband ate two of these sandwiches, and commented twice how good it was.
Copycat Chick-Fil-A Chicken Salad
2 cups leftover cooked whitemeat chicken, chopped (I used 2 bags of Beyond Meat Grilled Chicken Strips)
⅓ cup celery, chopped- I omitted
1 hard boiled egg, chopped
¼ cup sweet pickle relish
¾ cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
8 slices whole wheat bread (I used a country loaf)
loose leaf lettuce
Mix together the chicken, celery, egg, mayonnaise, relish, salt and pepper.
Toast bread and top half with lettuce.
Spread ¼ of the copycat chicken salad over each, and top with remaining toast slices.
