  • 4 slices of applewood-smoked bacon
  • 16 mini brioche rolls (about 2 inches)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 celery rib, minced
  • 1/2 small shallot, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced flat-leaf parsley, plus 32 large flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 chicken breasts from a rotisserie chicken—skin and bones discarded, chicken cut into 1/3-inch dice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 small plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices (16 slices)

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat until browned and crisp all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain, then cut each slice into 4 pieces.
  2. Using a paring knife, cut a 1-inch round plug out of the top of each brioche roll. Carefully hollow out the rolls. Set the rolls on a baking sheet and warm them in the oven to refresh them, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the the mayonnaise, celery, shallot, minced parsley and lemon juice. Stir in the diced chicken and season the salad with salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the chicken salad into each brioche roll, garnish with parsley leaves and cover with a tomato slice. Top each roll with 1 teaspoon of chicken salad, garnish with the bacon and serve.
