Cranberry Chicken Sandwiches

The first time we had this sandwich my husband was not that impressed. However, after I made a few tweaks to the recipe he said there was a night and day difference. Now everything blends nicely together to create a fantastic sandwich.
This sandwich is different from many similar sandwiches because it doesn't have mayo or extra sauce in it. It goes without saying that this would be an excellent recipe to keep in mind for after Thanksgiving as turkey would work just as well as chicken.

  1. I have a cranberry chicken salad sandwich on my blog too, I can't remember how different it is from this but I know that we liked it. This looks really good!

  2. That sounds like an interesting twist on a chicken sandwich. I bet it is yummy with the cranberries added in!

  3. Looks delicious! This would probably be great to make with leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving!
