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

  1. Marinate chicken with white pepper, soy sauce, garlic paste and salt. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan, and add the marinated chicken.
  3. Cook for about 10 - 15 minutes until the chicken is tender, and the water has dried.
  4. Remove the chicken and let it cool.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Take out the chicken spread and place it in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings if required.
  8. 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.

Recipe 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.
