Blueberry Chicken Salad Recipe

I was challenged by Nature’s Harvest bread to come up with a Finding Dory themed sandwich recipe to share with my readers in this sponsored post.

Disney – Pixar’s “Finding Dory” is almost out in theaters! Are your kids as excited as mine? I wanted to add a little Dory fun into our typical chicken salad recipe so Sinisa and I created this amazing blueberry chicken salad recipe. Typically, if chicken salad has fruit in it, it’s either grapes or apples but I figured why not add some blueberries instead to celebrate the movie coming to theaters since Dory is blue! I love the mix of flavors that this sandwich has.

Here’s what you will need to make the sandwiches:

  • Nature’s Harvest Bread
  • 3 Cups of diced chicken
  • 1/2 a red pepper
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1/2 cup of green onions
  • 1/2 cup of mayonaise
  • 2 tablespoons of greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of pecans
  • Salt and pepper to taste

This chicken salad is easy to make!

1) Mix together all ingredients other than the blueberries (and bread of course)

2) Gently fold in the blueberries

3) Put between two slices of Nature’s Harvest bread

 

Select packages of specially-marked Nature’s Harvest® bread will feature the lovable characters from Disney• Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” which hits theaters this Friday.

 

For kid’s sandwiches you can use a cookie cutter to cut out a fish, whale or seashell from the bread before you put the chicken salad on the bread. Serve with goldfish crackers for a fun lunch!

  1. I love chicken salad so much. This version looks like t would be perfect in the summer months with the addition of the fruit

  2. I would have to take out those pecans out since I’m allergic to nuts but everything else I can totally do. This would be great as a summer snack.

  3. This seems like such a good combination. With my kids home from school I am in need of good lunch ideas. This is a great one!

  4. I would have never thought of putting blueberries with chicken salad together, but it looks great!

  5. I’ve used grapes in my chicken salad before but never thought about blueberries! I’m going to do that next time!

  6. Blueberries are one of my fav berries – I can’t wait to try this!

  7. You had me at chicken salad! I’m always looking for new recipes to add to the lunch rotation!

  8. I typically make my chicken salad with grapes, but never thought about using blueberries instead. I bet it gives the dish a great added sweetness.
