Easy Chicken Curry Sandwich

On some occasions when we are just too tired to cook, this chicken curry sandwich recipe does the trick. It is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious.

We normally eat this in a flatbread or a toasted pita bread.

It is a little bit like a poor man’s alternative to my easy coronation chicken recipe. But only really because it is super quick to make (ready in 15 minutes) and has fewer ingredients.

My wife in fact prefers this to my coronation chicken recipe (but I think this is only because she can eat it sooner!).

In fact, if you leave away the accessories like the flatbread, you could call this a keto coronation chicken recipe.

Chicken Curry Sandwich

This meal originated for me in the days when I was working long hours on projects.

I needed some quick and healthy sustenance when I got home and everyone else had eaten.

This super easy chicken recipe always did the trick and could be eaten warm.

It is really just as easy as my quick and easy tuna pasta and uses just some basic ingredients.

As mentioned, I always have Hellmann’s Real Mayo and Patak’s Madras Spice Paste in the fridge at any point in time. So that is the sauce taken care of.

The chicken and bread may need to be bought, but maybe you have some leftovers from the Sunday roast chicken which could be used? Or some BBQ chicken leftovers?

We always have an onion or a shallot kicking around somewhere!

I think you will find the taste not quite as refined as the taste of my coronation chicken, which has a few sweet ingredients included.  But I still think the combination of the mayo and the curry paste is genius, even if I say so myself 😃.

Make your own flatbread for the sandwich

If you are feeling really adventurous, why not make your own flatbread to go with it? My 3-ingredient flatbread recipe is super easy and also ready in 15 minutes if you can multitask!
