These Chicken Melts take me straight back to lunchtime in my Grandmother’s kitchen.

My Gram put this chicken spin on the traditional Tuna Melt for me when I was a kid because I detest Tuna…but, I love the idea of the open-faced sandwich. And so, chicken melts were born.

Homemade Chicken Melts

These cute little sandwiches quickly became my favorite lunch meal and I begged for them every time I was at her house for lunch.

Luckily, they’re really easy to make and they only require 5 ingredients that you likely have on hand.

So, what are you waiting for? Get out your toaster and toast up some English Muffins, spread on some chicken salad and top with a tomato and a slice of cheese. Then bake for about 10 minutes.


Your new favorite lunch is ready!
