Please tell me I’m not the only one obsessed with Chick-fil-A’s chicken salad sandwhich! Anyone? Anyone?

You may have seen other copycat versions out there, but this one is it. No really, it comes directly from their website. It’s simple, easy to make and tastes every bit like the real deal. There isn’t any added sugar, salt or pepper, just 5 ingredients: chicken, celery, mayo, relish and boiled eggs.

All you need is a food processor and 10 minutes. Probably less than that, but it does take time to toast the bread and assemble the sandwich. Cube two crispy chicken breasts, two grilled chicken breasts, toss in the chopped celery, mayo and relish and pulse for 5 seconds. Add the boiled eggs and pulse for about 10 more seconds. That’s it. Crazy easy, right?! Just don’t get carried away when it comes to pulsing the mixture or you’ll end up with a really mushy consistency. While their chicken salad is pretty fine, it does have noticeable chunks of ingredients in it.

Toast some wheatberry bread (or some other kind of wheat bread), pile on the chicken salad and top with lettuce. You’ll be in chicken salad heaven.
