Homestyle Honey-Mustard Chicken Sandwich



In our house, we try to use all of our leftovers in some way.  Food is expensive and, when we can grow it ourselves, I know how much work went into producing it!  If we have chicken for dinner, I try to use the leftovers in the next day's chicken pot pie, Tuscan Chicken Stew (my stew recipe here), or chicken salad sandwiches.

There was also a time when Farm Girl would only eat things if she could dip them in honey-mustard dressing.  Vegetables, sandwiches, and even pasta were acceptable with a side of honey-mustard.  Eventually, I realized that it was really easy, healthy, and inexpensive to make our own dressing instead of going through bottle after bottle of Ken's Dressing from the store.  Mix about 3 parts honey to 1 part mustard... that's it!  This sandwich recipe uses fresh honey and mustard for a gourmet-tasting sandwich that only takes a few minutes to prepare from leftover chicken.

Homestyle Honey-Mustard Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients for one sandwich:
- leftover chicken, shredded or chopped
- about 2 tablespoons mayo
- about 2 tablespoons honey
- about 2 teaspoons bottled spicy brown mustard
- sandwich roll (I like mine with poppy seeds), cut in half
- paprika (optional)

1.  Mix chicken and mayo in a bowl.  Spoon onto roll.
2.  Drizzle honey and mustard over top of chicken, more or less depending on your taste.
3. Sprinkle lightly with paprika.  Top with other half of roll.
