When you take a packed lunch to work every day it is easy to get stuck in a rut making the same things. If you are a busy mum mornings can be a nightmare. There is the rush to get everyone up and eating breakfast. Next is the challenge of making sure they have everything they need for school. There is always the last minute request for PE kit or desperate search for a lost item. Making sandwiches for lunches as well can seem like a daunting task. By the time you have everyone ready it feels like you have run a race.

These chicken salad sandwiches are easy and quick to make. You can prepare the chicken mixture the night before. The next day all you need to do is to butter the bread and put the chicken mix into the sandwich. The sandwich is full of flavour and taste. Anyone would be happy to find one of these chicken sandwiches in their lunch box. If you have more time to make lunch then why not make a toasted cheese sandwich which is worth the effort. For something a little more special then a Cuban Midnight Sandwich is a real treat.

The Ultimate Chicken Salad Sandwich

The key to making the ultimate chicken salad sandwich is to cut the salad and chicken into small pieces. This allows you to mix it up with a little mayonnaise and give the sandwich more flavour. This sandwich contains a mixture of little gem lettuce, celery and cherry tomatoes mixed with spicy Taste Inc. 100% chargrilled chicken fillets. Cut everything into small pieces and put in a bowl. Stir though a spoonful of mayonnaise and some black pepper. Finally, add the mixture between two slices of bread. The ultimate chicken sandwich is born.

    Alison, the sandwich looks really satiating. I feel if I eat it, I won’t be able to eat much for dinner lol. I can tell it tastes good and there’s a good crunch from the lettuce.
