Spring is in the Air with Wine to Pair: Chicken Salad Sandwich Ring

Today is a rainy one, but try this recipe on the next nice one and set up a picnic. This Chicken Salad Sandwich Ring is a great afternoon snack or lunch dish. 

The Dish:  Chicken Salad Sandwich Ring
As seen on the “Picnic Pleasers” episode

3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cooked)
2 cups grapes-split
1 cup sliced almonds
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup chopped celery
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Pillsbury French Bread rolls
Italian Herbs
Olive oil

Take French bread rolls and attach as a ring.  Sprinkle Italian Seasoning and olive oil over the top.  Bake according to package.  Cool and slice through the middle.  Shred chicken into bite size pieces. Combine with the rest of ingredients and toss to mix. Spread the chicken salad into the ring and pack it up for the picnic.  You can slice the ring into individual sandwiches.
