This classic British sandwich offers a regal blend of tender chicken in a creamy, curry-spiced sauce, balanced with a touch of sweetness, sandwiched between slices of fresh sourdough.
This recipe serves 3 people.

4 chicken breast
1 cinnamon stick
4 cardamom pods
1″ fresh ginger
olive oil
2 onions, roughly chopped
6 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp yoghurt
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp curry powder
½ tsp chilli powder
1 red chilli, chopped
4 spring onions, chopped
1 tbsp mango chutney
chilli oil (optional)
lettuce leaves
sourdough slices

– Place the chicken breast in a pan and cover in water. Add the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, and fresh ginger. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes.

– Heat 3-4 tbsp olive oil in a pan. Add the onions and cook on medium heat until golden and crispy. Transfer to a sieve placed over a bowl to drain any excess oil.

– To prepare the paste, place the mayonnaise, yoghurt, salt, curry powder, chilli, spring onions, and mango chutney in a large bowl. Mix well.

– Shred the chicken and add to the paste. Mix well.

– Heat 1-2 tbsp oil in a frying pan. Toast all sides of the sourdough until golden and crispy.

– Assemble the sandwich by adding the lettuce leaves to the inside of one slice.

– Add the chicken filling and drizzle with some chilli oil. Top with the other slice of sourdough.

– Enjoy!
