Directions for: Waldorf Chicken Salad Sandwiches


2 whole chickens (3-4 lbs each)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Olive oil, for drizzling

⅓ cup mayonnaise, plus more for serving

1 cup green grapes, sliced

1 cup walnuts, chopped

4 ribs celery, chopped

1 green apple, peeled and chopped

1 bunch chives, chopped

1 lemon, juiced

Butter lettuce, for serving

Country loaf or nice whole-wheat bread, sliced and toasted, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Set the chickens on a rimmed baking sheet, sprinkle them all over with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast to an internal temperature of 160ºF, taken between the breast and thigh, about 1 hour.

3. Allow to cool. With two forks, shred all the meat off the bone.

4. In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, mayonnaise, grapes, walnuts, celery, apples, chives, lemon juice and big pinches of salt and pepper. Toss well.

5. To assemble the sandwiches: Fill a leaf of butter lettuce with some chicken salad. Sandwich the stuffed lettuce with two slices of bread spread with mayo. Repeat for the remaining sandwiches. Slice in half and enjoy.
