Mrs. Wilt's Saucy Chicken Sandwiches

Mrs. Wilt’s Saucy Chicken Sandwiches
6 servings

2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1 ½ cups chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
celery seed to taste
6 hearty rolls

In a saucepan, melt butter on low heat. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Gradually add chicken broth; bring to a boil. Lower heat and stir until mixture thickens into a sauce. Add chicken and celery to saucepan. Season with salt, pepper, and celery seed. Spoon onto rolls and wrap in aluminum foil. Heat at 250° for 15 minutes. Carefully unwrap hot sandwiches and enjoy!

These sandwiches are one of our favorite school day lunches. The recipe comes from Mrs. Wilt at The Sparrow's Nest. We enjoy them, as Mrs. Wilt suggests, with pretzels and apple slices.
