Chicken is so versatile that it transforms into an array of appetising dishes from starters to main course. My forte is Fusion cuisine as one can combine elements of different culinary traditions. Chicken sandwiches too can be twisted and tweaked to suit your palate. Sandwiches are now popular all over the world and are known as a light meal. Chicken sandwich was a favourite of my husband and me when we were eating chicken. Chicken is yummy in sandwich form when you stack bread slices with shredded chicken, mayo and pepper, isn’t it?
How can one not like a chicken mayo sandwich? If you are a big fan of cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches then that is the way to go for you. I am lactose intolerant and too much cheese makes me queasy so I always avoid it.The best part of this sandwich is that you can use any leftover chicken and the assembling takes few minutes and you have a scrumptious meal ready in a jiffy.
It’s quite filling even without the cheese and one is absolutely tempted to sink your teeth into it. It is said that chicken sandwich was introduced in the year 1964, the year I was born. No wonder I am partial to it.

Prepare the remaining sandwiches in the same way. If you prefer grilled sandwiches then grill them.
