The best ever chicken sandwich recipe
This is not a new recipe.
The best ever chicken sandwich recipe is actually quite a classic recipe in my family but I posted it back in the early days when my photos were rubbish and you would have probably taken one look at them and been turned off immediately.
Those old photos did this recipe nowhere near as much credit as they are due.
Chicken sandwiches sound like a pretty standard thing. Until now. Just wait until you try my mum’s scrumptious chicken sandwich masterpiece.
Mum created this one herself.
For years and years whenever we went out to lunch, there was only one place that we went – Buzz cafe – and every time we got the exact same thing – chicken finger sandwiches.
You might also like pulled pork sliders.
They were so good. So good we ordered them for years but then one day Mum decided it was time to try making them herself and after a bit of experimenting and quite a few sandwiches eaten, she came up with the best ever chicken sandwich recipe.
Some people take some convincing to get past the idea of a green sandwich but no one has ever had any bad words to say about them. In fact I think they are the recipe I’m asked for most from friends and family.
Every time I host a party (even the kids parties) and Mum offers to make something I always ask her to make chicken sandwiches. They make great party food and are pretty easy to prepare.
How to assemble the sandwiches
The filling is almost like a chunky chicken paste made with cooked chicken breast and some mayo but don’t worry all you mayo-haters.
Dad won’t touch mayo with a ten foot pole but even he loves these sandwiches (probably doesn’t know there’s mayo in them so don’t tell!). See what I mean about the awful photos?
Now if the green stack style really is too different for you then feel free to make these on whatever sort of ‘bread’ you like.
We have filled baguettes, rolled it in lavosh and made regular bread sandwiches and Mum has even made a gluten free version on little salad leaves.
Do they freeze?
Another great thing about these sandwiches is that you can make the filling and then freeze it so you can whip up the best ever chicken sandwiches at a moment’s notice.
I’m pretty sure Mum always has some stashed away in her freezer.
I seriously insist you make this recipe. Trust me if you like chicken sandwiches this is the only recipe you will ever need. Enjoy!
