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.

Bowl of Happiness

Now here’s an opening line for you: this was the best darn fruit salad I’ve ever had. And I mean every single word. It was utter perfection. Saintly, even. It combined fresh, sweet and light fruits such as papaya and mango with a more dense flavor like banana and the creamy avocado took it to such high levels one could not ever imagine a fruit salad to reach. Then it…
