Mrs. O’s Roast Chicken Sandwiches

Yaaas! I wanna share this:

One of my friends who is pregnant at the moment is always complaining because this particular pregnancy has her on a full time carb diet. All she craves is ham and cheese sandwiches and can’t remember the last time she had a salad. I sympathise but at the same time I’m like, ‘Yay for sandwiches!’. There’s nothing I love like a good sandwich because it can pretty much make any meal for any time of the day. Sandwiches are essentially the perfect meal. These are my go to sandwiches because they take minimal effort and ingredients which means they are quick and cheap to make.

Mrs. O’s Roast Chicken Sandwiches

Makes about 5 triple stacked sandwiches

You will need

1/2 chicken (I used half of a Kenchic 1.6)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

1 chopped onion

Wholemeal bread – with the crusts cut off

Handful of lettuce – washed and dried with kitchen towel or serviettes

1 avocado – mashed to spread on the bread

1 bell pepper

1 (large) tomato

1 tablespoon oil

How to

First thing you want to do is roast your chicken. Rub your salt and pepper on it with a little oil and pop in the oven for about 25 minutes at 170C. You can cut it up into smaller pieces before putting it in the oven so it reduces your cook time.

You can reuse these bones for making a killer chicken stock instead of tossing them.

Once the chicken is cooled, roughly pull apart meat from the bones and shred with fork and knife.

In a pan, get the onions  caramelizing slowly over low heat. You want them to turn sweet rather than burnt so be patient with them. Once they soften and turn brown, add in the bell peppers. Let the mixture cool.

Spread some avo on each of the bread slices and begin layering. You want to put the lettuce down first then the tomatoes so that the bread doesn’t get soggy from the juices. In the middle layer, put your chicken and onions + bell peppers mix. Feel free to add one final crack of black pepper before placing the last slice of bread.
