Spring Chicken Sandwich

Spring Chicken Sandwich

Finally I get to eat chicken salad sandwiches and drink serious glasses of milk again in the back yard while reading books! My favourite pastime.

Crazy as it may sound, I built this sandwich around a bottle of mango vinegar; my latest culinary addiction. It turned out every bit as spring-like, fresh and wonderful as I hoped it would be.

This sandwich is so chockfull of flavour, texture and surprising twists… great to eat down to the very last bite.

 

Ingredients:

1 crusty French bread
2 cups cooked chicken (cold)
2 spring onions
1/3 head of lettuce
1 small or 1/2 a large avocado
1 sweet and fresh apple (Fuji is great)
4 tbsp Hellmann’s (or another salty mayonnaise)
1 1/2 tbsp mango vinegar
good splash of chipotle hot sauce
salt & pepper

 

Directions:

I cooked my chicken in salty broth. Chop or pull the chicken apart and chop the spring onions.

Here’s what it all started with. This vinegar is divine, no other word for it, really.

That first scoop out of a new jar of mayonnaise (or peanut butter) should always be mine. Always.

Mix the mayonnaise with the mango vinegar, a splash of chipotle hot sauce and whisk well.

The explosure of flavour the creamy and salty mayo, the smokey zing the hot sauce and fresh and sweet mango vinegar will give is incredible.
 

Wash and finely chop the apple, avocado and iceberg lettuce. Put it all in a big, cheery bowl with bright retro flowers.

Add the sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste. I’m using the funky pink Himalayan salt.

Open up your bread of choice and go for it!

One of the best chicken sandwiches I’ve had in quite some time.

    Apple Couscous & Goat Cheese Cucumber Rolls

    This recipe came with the Hello Fresh Box I tried a couple of months ago. The vegetable box didn’t do it for me, but the recipe was a keeper, after I tweaked it a bit. You know I can’t leave things alone. It’s a lovely light, fresh, sweet and vegetarian spring dish with a slight kick. Funky cucumber rolls filled with a honey-sweetened goat geese and walnuts served alongside a…

      Tapas!

      I’ve been collecting and trying lots of Tapas recipes ever since we decided to take our son to Spain this summer. Really looking forward to our trip. Alioli and pan con ajo y tomate (bread scrubbed with garlic & tomato) are two of those things that simply belong on the table when eating tapas. Sharing both recipes here. Now here’s the deal; like any other food blogger, I too had…

        Sweet Jalapeño Hot Sauce

        I went a little crazy last time I went out for grocery shopping and ran into lots and lots of pretty green jalapeños. Probably not a big deal to many of you, but in the Netherlands that’s a pretty rare find. I got a little carried away and bought way too much! I thought about jalapeño pickles, tasty but hardly spectacular. I already have tons of jalapeño powder that I…

          Shakshuka

          I adore these simple one-pan dishes. Especially those where you throw a few eggs into the equation and poach them in whatever it is you’re making. In that light, me sharing this classic Middle Eastern dish called Shashuka probably doesn’t come as a big surprise to some of you. And really, if this is the first you’ve heard of it let me tell you that you’ve been missing out… we…

            Chili, Garlic & Sesame Oil

            I love to wok. It’s fast, healthy and incredibly flavourful. But the only flavoured stir-fry oil I can buy in Gouda is olive oil based, which isn’t really suitable for stir-frying. The Chinese store downtown is incredibly expensive, so I just make my own stir-fry oil these days using a basic peanut oil as a basis. This is my favourite; chili & garlic oil with a hint of sesame. Lots…
