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!

      Looks yum! Will definitely try! By the way I am too big fan of foodelicious products ….  Their infused oils are brilliant.

      where do I find mango vinegar? or is this something you made?

      1. I bought it…. but I think amazon also sells it and probably a lot of other stores as well.

      Great snack! Why to buy subway when you can just make something like this easily at home.

      I like putting fruit in chicken salad.  Must leave out anything mango but Franks hot sauce is a terrific addition.

      1. They’re selling it in NL too now!

      Wow, so many new ingredients I’ve never even heard of or tried but I’m intrigued! Pink salt? Is it bad I like it already because it’s pink? And that mango vinegar…you mentioned sweet, is it also sour? Never seen it anywhere! But I can imagine all those infusions of flavors and textures, creaminess, spiciness, crunchiness, sweetness and fresh!

      1. Himalayan salt to me is so much tastier (and prettier) than regular salt.. no toxins or impurities and a very pure flavor. The mango vinegar is like a dressing on its own, sweet, sour and creamy… delicious.

      Hi Kay, where did you get the mango vinegar (I live in NL also)? Can’t wait to try this recipe, I’ve used so many of yours and they’ve all been wonderful!

      1. Got it at foodelicious.nl! Comes with a warning; is seriously addictive :)

      I forgot to review this, even though I made it when you first posted the recipe. We LOVED it. This is now my go to chicken salad.

      Add to the first mayo or peanut butter from the jar, the first slug of Heinz Tomato Ketchup from the bottle – the best taste ever – used to fight my brother for it!

      In Holland, there must be better options than Hellman’s mayo. I grew up using that common and unfortunate mayo, unless I stayed over with my grandparents. Certainly Albert Heijn doesn’t sell Hellman’s?

      Eric on Apr 20, 2014 @ 12:15 am Reply
      1. Hellmann’s is the absolute best there is! Dutch mayo can be quite bland. I once tastes miracle whip and that was plain nasty.
        Sure, you can buy this at AH and pretty much any other grocery store.

      I like that this doesn’t use a lot of Mayo. What if I can absolutely not get Mango Vinegar…but can get real Mangos and vinegar:) Do you have any ideas for a substitute that will contribute the same flavors?

      Sarah on Aug 30, 2014 @ 9:33 am Reply
      1. I’d absolutely use my immersion blender on a piece of ripe mango with a tiny splash of vinegar!

      Thanks for the quick response! I will certainly try it. I also can’t get Chipotle sauce, would a dash cayenne pepper or red chili powder work? New at experimenting with flavors. Thanks for your advice!

      Sarah on Aug 30, 2014 @ 10:17 am Reply
      1. Any type of hot sauce will do! Just don’t make the mango vinegar all too acidic.

      So yummy, can imagine it would have been more yummy had i had the mango vinegar!! We didn’t have avocado or hot sauce either so used cheese & sweet chilli sauce & apple cider vinegar. Love all your recipes immensely :)
