Smashed Chickpea Chicken Salad- Two Ways


 You will need:
1/8 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
16 oz can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
mayo
salt pepper
celery
minced dried onions
salad
bread






Smash 16 oz of drained chickpeas.  And 2 cups of minced cooked chicken breast.  Add 2 TBS mayo, 2 TBS dried onions, 1/2 tsp salt or Nosalt, 1 tsp pepper, 1/8 cup diced celery, 1/8 cup parmesan cheese.  Stir till well mixed.

I used Hodgson's Mill Rye bread for the sandwich.  Form the mix into a patty to fit the bread - otherwise it crumbles too much.  I put a thin layer of mayo on the bread before smashing the chickpea patty on it.  On the other half of the bread I arrange the lettuce, then I put both halves together.  You can also add a slice of tomato between the halves if you want to.

Extra salad  on the side, topped with more of the chickpea mix.  No dressing needed.
