Chicken Mayonnaise Sandwich
There are not many things on this planet that beat my favourite lunch snack of a freshly made chicken mayo sandwich. Chicken is so good when eaten cold and this simple chicken mayo sandwich recipe is certainly a classic.
In this recipe again, you will find my use of Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise that we love to use in many of our family dishes.
But of course, if you have your own preferred make of mayo you could use that.
We recommend Hellmann’s though because we love it (and no we are not affiliated with them, alhough we wish we were, because we do get through amounts of it!)
Use up the leftovers!
Sometimes we indulge ourselves in a roast chicken dinner, and invariably there will be chicken leftovers as there are only three of us. But you can, of course, use grilled chicken or even cold fried chicken to make this. Or even your leftover BBS chicken.
As long as it is boneless, it should be fine. In fact, if we use the chicken from the roast, we may even add a bit of the stuffing to the sandwich to just give that taste to remind us of the Sunday roast again!
So I wondered what to call this sandwich as it is so simple. It could have been a roast chicken sandwich or a grilled chicken sandwich.
Or even a fried chicken sandwich. But I settled on the chicken mayo sandwich as the mayo is what adds that special something.
But this chicken and mayo sandwich recipe is something I love to prepare the next day for lunch.
It is as quick and easy to make as a peanut and jelly sandwich, but probably a bit healthier.
And of course, you can replace the chicken with turkey after a Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner!
It is a great meal in a lunch box or a picnic and often we will take these with us to the beach as they are so easy. We may then leave out the tomatoes, or pack them separately, to stop them from soaking the bread too much.
These sandwiches were made with some homemade wholemeal loaf slices, but you can of course use any bread you like; white bread, baguette, sourdough, rolls or buns – it’s up to you.
