Curried Mango & Chicken Sandwich

Grilled Chicken & Curried Mango Sandwich

It’s been a while, but finally I have a new favorite sandwich. One that doesn’t involve bacon and avocado! My 12-stepper program is going very well, thank you.

I’ve always been a major fan of chicken and fruit combinations, be it for dinner or lunch, and this particular combination works beautifully. It’s got it all, the whole roller coaster of flavors, textures and colors.

I’m using mayonnaise as well as sour cream, but don’t worry; you’ll be adding so little to the sandwich it’s not gonna do much harm to your arteries.

Having said that, I must admit to dipping a few carrot sticks into the dressing. And cucumber sticks. And raw pieces of cauliflower. Man, it was good!


Ingredients:

boneless chicken breasts
whole wheat buns
1 mango
1 onion
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp sour cream
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
few drops tabasco
1/2 tsp lime juice
pinch of salt
dried chervil


Directions:

Having to feed a bunch of people I made a lot of dressing. Feel free cut the dressing recipe in half and it will still be plenty for, say, a family of four!

I used half a chicken breast to photograph the recipe with. This should be enough for 2 normal sized buns and enough for one person. Unless you’re a really big eater.

Season the chicken anyway you like. For me that’s a pinch of salt and this highly addictive lemon pepper.

Slice a small onion in rings or half-rings. You can also replace it with thin slices raw spring onion if you like.

Grill the chicken fillet and onion until tender. I love grill stripes.

Chicken and mango is a match made in heaven. Peel it and thinly slice 1/3 of the mango. Coarsely chop the rest and puree it using a (immersion) blender.

Combine the mayonnaise (Hellmann’s baby!) with the sour cream, the onion and curry powder, 3 tbsp mango puree and a little lime (or lemon) juice. No more than 1/2 a tsp.

Mix it up and taste it. The mango gives enough sweetness for me, but feel free to add a pinch of sugar.

Season with a little salt if need be. You can add pepper but I prefer a few drops tabasco. And a little chervil really adds flavor.

This sandwich works best with crusty whole wheat bread. And lettuce or salad leaves.

Feel free to butter the bread or coat the salad leaves with a basic vinaigrette. I didn’t. The dressing was enough for me.

Start layering. Start with the salad leaves, top with sliced chicken, grilled onions and drizzle a little dressing on top. Finish it with thinly sliced mango.

It’s gonna put a spring in your step, a spring in your heart and a twinkle in your eyes!

Yeah, right.

    Season the chicken anyway you like. I went for salt and lemon pepper. Slice a small onion in rings or half-rings. Grill the chicken and onion until tender and fully cooked.

    Peel a mango and thinly slice 1/3 of the mango. Coarsely chop the rest and puree it using a (immersion) blender. Combine the mayonnaise (Hellmann’s baby! with the sour cream, the onion and curry powder, 3 tbsp mango puree and a little lime (or lemon) juice. No more than 1/2 a tsp.

      I agree –
      this looks more like pumpernickle bread?

      @Yolita:

      No, they’re more like multi grain bread.

      Kay you are truly the sandwich queen. Looks really good. You should make a cookbook with sandwich recipes. I would buy your cookbook for certain.

      It sounds wonderful, I love fruit and chicken.  I can also see a nice piece of grilled salmon instead of the chicken.

      Hi Kay,
      Just happened upon your blog.  Lots of yummy recipes!   Where do you buy the lemon pepper?  I recognize the brand, but can’t place where I’ve seen it.

      Wow, this looks and sounds really good. I love Mangos! And I’ll have to
      be on the lookout for some good multigrain bread.

      @Sue:

      Verstegen is a Dutch brand, I think, so I have no idea if it can be bought elsewhere. This is a HUGE bottle that comes with a built-in mill/grinder. It’s really high-quality peppercorns with a touch of coriander seeds and dried lemon zest. Amazing stuff.

      Hi there,
      I’m in the Netherlands (den haag), an import from the states. :)    I checked at our AH and c1000 and they have the brand, but not that particular item (and small amounts of the spices they have).  So, if it’s available here, I’d love to find some.
      Thanks!

      My mom just saw me looking at this recipe and said she had something like it twenty years ago and has been craving it ever since. We are so making it soon:)

      This was delicious!
      Thank you so much for posting!
      The dressing was my favorite part, I’ll definitely be using the extra that I have for as much as possible, haha :)
