Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 125 g boneless chicken diced
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic paste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 5 - 6 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 - 3 tablespoon evaporated milk can substitute with regular milk if not available
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 loaf of bread 18 - 20 slices of bread

Instructions

  • Marinate chicken with white pepper, soy sauce, garlic paste and salt. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan, and add the marinated chicken.
  • Cook for about 10 - 15 minutes until the chicken is tender, and the water has dried.
  • Remove the chicken and let it cool.
  • Add the chicken in a food processor with 4 tablespoons mayonnaise and the evaporated milk. Pulse till the chicken shreds and turns into a paste. If the chicken spread feels too thick, add another tablespoon of mayonnaise.
  • The consistency of the chicken spread will depend on how much you pulse it. If you pulse more, the spread will be more like a paste but if you pulse less, the chicken spread will have more texture. So process as much as you prefer.
  • Take out the chicken spread and place it in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings if required.
  • To make the sandwich, spread the chicken spread on one bread slice, and then place 4 cucumber slices on top. Top with the other bread slice, and then cut into half or triangles.

Notes

Recipe Notes:
  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can make the chicken mixture manually. Just shred the chicken by hand and then just roughly chop it with a knife so it gets chopped into small pieces. 
  • Leftover chicken is a great option for these chicken spread sandwiches - if you have some leftover grilled chicken, roast chicken or even some chicken boti from a salan for dinner. However, if you are using leftover chicken from a salan, just wash it before using so that the spices get neutralised. 
Options for add-ins:
  • Add ½ teaspoon red chili flakes or 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce to give the chicken spread an extra kick. 
  • Instead of soy sauce, marinate the chicken in Nando’s peri peri sauce. 
  • Add vegetables - carrots or celery would be a good addition to the chicken spread mixture. Just mince them in the food processor and mix them through. 
  • Add herbs - you can add ½ teaspoon of dry Italian herbs or 1 teaspoon of freshly minced herbs (options include parsley or basil). You can also give a Desi twist to the chicken spread by adding coriander and green chili. 
  • In addition to the sliced cucumbers, add some tomatoes or a slice of cheese.
