Lemon Tarragon Chicken Cashew Sandwiches Recipe

I love eating leftover chicken this way!


  • 2 roasted chicken half breasts (skinless and boneless), diced or shredded
  • 1/4 cup cashew pieces
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions (white and part of green)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 sprig fresh tarragon, chopped (1/2-1 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves can be substituted)
  • Freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • Salt to taste (optional)
  • 6 slices 100% whole wheat or whole grain bread


  1. Add chicken pieces, cashews, celery and green onions to medium bowl and toss to combine.
  2. Add lemon juice, light mayo, fat free sour cream, tarragon, ground pepper and salt (if desired) to 2 cup measure and stir to blend. Add mayo mixture to the chicken mixture in the medium bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Top three slices of bread each with one-third of the mixture. Top each with a remaining slices of bread. Cut on the diagonal and serve!
