Caramelized Onion, Walnut and Cilantro Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Dec. 2011 120 Not sure where I nabbed this recipe, but it’s yum! I made it for a Valentine’s get together. Ironic, ‘cuz of the onion factor…on Valentine’s Day…but what the heck!


1 tablespoon butter

1 cup chopped sweet onion (1 large)

2 cups Shredded Chicken Master Recipe (see recipe below)

½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted

¼ cup sliced green onion (2)

½ cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon lime juice

Salt and ground black pepper (optional)

10 slices sourdough bread, toasted

10 slices tomato

¾ cup baby spinach leaves

Pimiento-stuffed green olives (optional)


1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onion. Cook, covered, for 13 to 15 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Uncover; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes more or until golden.

2.In a large bowl, combine onion, chicken, walnuts, and green onion. Add mayonnaise, cilantro, and lime juice; toss to coat. If desired, season to taste with salt and pepper.

3.Place about 1/2 cup chicken salad on each of five bread slices. Top each with two slices tomato and some of the spinach. Top sandwiches with the remaining bread slices. If desired, secure each sandwich with a skewer and garnish with an olive. Makes 5 servings.IMG_0812

I’ve also served it on croissants.
