Making roast chicken for dinner is something I do quite often, especially because the leftovers make great chicken salad sandwiches.

MAKES 4 SANDWICHES

2 cups leftover roast chicken, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

12 grapes, diced (optional)

1 sprig tarragon, chopped

1 scallion, chopped

½ cup homemade or other good quality mayonnaise

1 tablespoon grainy mustard

Salt & pepper to taste

4 to 8 lettuce leaves, such as romaine, washed and dried

8 slices thick, rustic bread—whole wheat or seeded breads work well

Mix all ingredients except lettuce, salt and pepper, and bread together in a large mixing bowl and blend well.

Place lettuce leaves on bread slices, fill with chicken salad mixture. Enjoy!
