Chicken Sandwich

I made this easy sandwich with some leftover grilled chicken last week. Quite effortless and filling at the same time. One can quickly slather some chicken with barbecue sauce/tandoori masala/mustard paste and pop it in to the oven/microwave for a couple of minutes. Add some crisp veggies to it and you have a great snack/meal some leftovers. Read on for an easy sandwich recipe:

Preparation Time - 10 mins

Ingredients -

  • 2 slices of sandwich bread
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • few pieces of shredded grilled chicken/tandoori chicken/boiled chicken
  • a few pieces of sliced red peppers
  • a few pieces of sliced yellow peppers
  • some thinly sliced onion
  • a lettuce leaf
  • 1 tsp tomato ketchup
  • pepper for seasoning
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Put the bread slices on a clean working surface.

Layer on mayonnaise on one side.

Add chicken pieces, peppers and onions . Sprinkle salt ad pepper. Drizzle on ketchup.

Finally add the lettuce.

Close the sandwich.

Cooking - Heat a grill pan, sandwich maker or even a non-stick tawa/frying pan. Toast the sandwich on both sides for a few minutes till light brown.

Cut into two/four pieces with a sharp edge knife. (I keep planning to buy one of those but somehow it never happens. And hence my sandwiches have rough edges all the time.)

Note - For eggy-tarians, one can add some scrambled egg/omlette instead of the chicken. Tastes equally good. ( Mix in some cheese with the eggs )
