Quick and Easy Snack Using King’s Hawaiian Rolls

If you’re in a bind and looking for something light for lunch, have I got a brainiac idea for you!

I actually got this tip from my sister when she was catering a bridal shower for another family member.

I had some leftover roast chicken, so I chopped it up; added finely diced celery, onion, and dill pickle with enough mayonnaise to coat.

Spoon a dollop of chicken salad inside King’s Hawaiian rolls. The sourness of the dill pickle with the sweetness of the bread is a match made in heaven.

Of course, you can substitute with tuna or egg salad too.

I made a bunch of these up in minutes. They’re light, but filling.

  1. Maria I totally agree! “The sourness of the dill pickle with the sweetness of the bread is a match made in heaven.”

    These little sweet bread rolls are a “special treat” that we have used for individual ham&cheese melt sandwiches as well. Your method for me would be to sub tuna salad with pretty much the same ingredients and just a little mayo mixed in with the condiments to add the moisture so can leave the mayo off the rolls.

    Nice, quick tip for leftover roast chicken for sure.
