Chicken mayo toasted sandwich recipe


  • Your favourite bread
  • Butter
  • Shredded roasted chicken breasts (you can also add thigh meat for more flavour)
  • Mayo
  • Lettuce (we like Iceberg the best)
  • Salt & pepper


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded roast chicken with a generous dollop of mayo
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste
  3. Butter the bread on one side for each slice
  4. Place a generous scoop of chicken mayo mix on the unbuttered side of the bread
  5. Close the sandwich with the buttered sides on the outside
  6. Gently toast the sandwich in a flat-bed toaster. Be careful not to push down too hard otherwise the chicken mayo may come out of the sandwich
  7. After toasting, open the sandwich up again and add some Iceberg lettuce for a more fresh tasting sandwich
  8. Allow the sandwiches to cool completely before you store in wax wrap or tinfoil until you’re ready to tuck in

If you don’t have a flat-bed toaster, don’t worry! Our Chicken Mayo toasted sandwich is just as tasty on fresh bread. Just make sure you butter the insides if you’re not toasting it. Of course, you can always pop into a M&B On-The-Move along the way and pick up ours.
