The main ingredient in this sandwich is the chicken and it’s very popular.. Cold rotisserie chicken makes a terrific chicken salad sandwich. Some people even make it with their favorite fast-food fried chicken and swear it’s the best.
Poach chicken: In a large pot, arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer. If using, place lemon slices and dill sprigs on chicken. Pour water over the chicken breasts, covering by at least an inch. Bring water to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the center of the chicken reaches 165° with an instant read thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer, check that the thickest part of the chicken is opaque.
