A gluten free chicken salad sandwich recipe with a twist! You’ll want to put this healthy peanut sauce on everything!
Another lovely summer weekend in the books. Yay for good times. Nay for the summer coming to an end exponentially faster.
MJ and my aunt Karen (aka Queen) came up to visit me in ME for the weekend. Mama Jane. Papa John. Queen. Can you tell my family likes obscure nicknames?
Anyways, as soon as we got our bums downtown, we received our cue that we were gunna have a good time.
We started the festivities with what other than FOOD.
AKA wine, cheese, and carrots. Swoon.
Then we hit the town for some eats and music by the water.
We made up for it by enjoying a giant delicious plate of mussels, baba ganoush, and another round of drinks. And the fact that it is at a place steps away from my apartment means I can pretend I made a fancy meal for myself more often.
The next morning, I pulled out the heavy Ms. Cleaver arterial, and got my domestic housewife-ing on.

I whipped up some quick homemade scones using this recipe, bought some local Wild Blueberry Ginger jam, and made sure there was always plenty of coffee flowing. I need more overnight guests as an excuse to bake more. And so I don’t polish off an entire batch of muffins in one Friends episode.
As soon as they shipped off to New Hampshireland, it was time for bidness.
Chicken salad bidness. When Food For Life reached out to me to try their line of gluten free sprouted bread, my recipe creating wheel started turning immediately.
They have four varieties to choose from, Almond, Flax, Three Seed, and Cinnamon Raisin. Of course I had to try them all to find my favorite.
Unlike a lot of the gluten-free breads and wraps I’ve tried, these breads don’t crumble or fall apart as soon as I go to pick it up and shove it in my pie hole.
The slices are a bit smaller and more dense that your typical slice of wonder, but I actually prefer that. It feels a bit more hardy and filling, rather than simply being crumbly air.
And I loved the nutrition stats! All organic. All ingredients I recognized. And the fact that they used applesauce in it.
- 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
- ½ tablespoon tamari (GF soy sauce)
- ½ tablespoon lime juice
- ½ tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 (12.5 oz) can diced chicken, drained
- ¼ cup red grapes, halved
- ½ celery stalk, chopped
- 6 slices sprouted gluten free bread
- In a medium bowl, combine the first six ingredients until thoroughly combined.
- Add diced chicken, grapes, and celery, and stir to combine.
- Spread salad mixture evenly on three slices of bread.
- Top with lettuce and remaining bread slices.
- Grill if desired and enjoy!
It’s no mystery that peanut butter is my jam (see what I did there). While tuna salad usually makes an appearance in the lunch department about twice a week, I’m getting a little burnt out. Chicken salad is a great change up, and anything with a peanut sauce is fair game for me to devour.
Especially dipped in more of it. Never enough.
And now it’s your chance to try out the sprouted breads yourself! Enter below to get your hands on each variety Food For Life offers. Good luck!
