As always, the seasoning in the chicken salad is only a suggestion. You can add the seasoning of your choice or adjust the ones I have suggested. 

I use brown bread but feel free to use white.

I enjoy Swiss cheese as it adds an element of sweetness to the sandwich but cheddar or other cheeses can be used as well.

Chicken strips you can buy from the grocery store work well, but feel free to poach your own chicken or used leftovers.
