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 can use that.
We recommend Hellmann’s though just because we love it. (And no, we are not affiliated with them, although we wish we were, because we do get through copious 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 BBQ 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! It goes really well.
In fact, chicken and stuffing sandwiches are a combination often found ready-made in service stations in the UK and Ireland. It’s a thing.
For those of you that are unaware, stuffing is a savoury side dish. Stuffing can be used to stuff a turkey or chicken, or baked on its own as a side dish.
There are different versions but it is commonly made with chestnuts, bread crumbs, onions and a variety of herbs and spices. The chestnuts provide a slightly sweet and nutty flavour that complements the savoury ingredients. It is a popular dish in many parts of the world, especially in Europe, where chestnuts are a common ingredient.
It goes great together with the chicken in this sandwich!
Chicken Mayo Sandwich
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.
I hope you enjoy trying this chicken mayo sandwich. If you do, please let me know how you get on in the comments section below!!
