Irresistible Chicken Salad Sandwiches

We all have a favorite sandwich.  Mine happens to be Chicken Salad.  I fix this one of two ways -- either with canned chicken (the big 20 oz cans from Sam's) or leftover cooked chicken breasts that I cut into cubes.

2 cups of chicken
1/4 cup chopped bacon bits (I fry 4 strips of bacon and chop it)
3 stalks of celery finely chopped
2 green onions finely sliced (white part included)
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup Miracle Whip

This is always a crowd pleaser.  Sometimes I'll add a handful of Craisins to brighten it up.

Tip:  We have fried bacon with breakfast most weekends.  I freeze my leftover fried bacon to use in recipes like this when I need it.  That can be a real time-saver.
