Don't let the not so pretty pictures of this post deter you from making these awesome sandwiches!
Growing up in Ohio we used to have these Creamed Chicken sandwiches for dinner periodically and everyone would inhale them. Then when I took my first "real" job working at a Twistee Treat we served the Creamed Chicken sandwiches there but I quickly learned that many people had never heard of these. Well, as an adult living in North Carolina if I mention these to anyone they look at me like I'm nuts so I decided I would Google the recipe and I actually found out that this sandwich is mainly known in Central and Northern Ohio. Who knew!?
There are lots of different recipes you will find for this sandwich but this one I'm sharing is how my mom always made them and it's now how I make them for us.
Creamed Chicken Sandwiches
Shredded chicken (I used 3 cans of white chicken for this recipe)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
Salt, pepper and garlic to taste
**You can make this recipe using fresh shredded chicken and just adjust your amount of soup depending on how much chicken you are using. The mixture is supposed to be a little runny but not too runny so you can judge it by that as you add the soup. I always know that to make it with 3 cans of chicken I need 1 full can of each of the two soups.
Shred your chicken and add desired amount of soup and seasonings to taste. Heat over medium heat stirring occasionally and serve on buns when heated through.
Shred your chicken--either the fresh chicken or canned works perfectly
Add your cans of soup to desired consistency. As mentioned above I find that 3 cans of chicken requires 1 full can of each of the two soups but you can just adjust the amount of soup depending on how much chicken you are using. Just don't make your mixture too runny or it won't stay on your bun.
Add salt, pepper and garlic to taste. I usually taste it as it heats because I find that most of the time as it gets hotter I want to have more seasonings.
Heat over medium heat, stir occasionally so the chicken doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
Serve your chicken mixture on buns and enjoy ♥
I personally love mustard on my Creamed Chicken Sandwich but these taste great all by themselves too.
I hope you and your family enjoy these yummy Creamed Chicken Sandwiches as much as we do!
