Earlier I made this great grilled Greek -marinated chicken for dinner and purposely cooked an extra chicken breast because we can always find a good use for good cooked chicken in our lunches.
First I mixed up some plain chicken salad with it, so my girls could enjoy that in a sandwich. But for my portion I added some curry powder and chopped grapes. Then I spread some mango chutney on one piece of the bread and topped with a slice of Romaine lettuce. I really liked the spice of the curry powder with the sweetness of the grapes and the crunch of the lettuce and diced dill pickles.
I’m sure the sandwich was even better because I’d made bread over the weekend in my bread machine. (It’s a Zojirushi BB-CEC20WB Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker, White. That’s an affiliate link so I make a small commission if you buy something from Amazon after clicking on that link). The joys of having a bread machine is that it’s really easy to whip up “fancy” bread when you’d like. This had ricotta cheese and fresh chives from my garden. Super tasty. Half of it was gone the day I baked it.
I work at home and can easily get bored with leftovers for lunch. This uses leftover chicken but doesn’t taste like leftovers for lunch to me! Definitely tasted like something you’d order eating out and was really hardly any effort beyond making a boring chicken salad sandwich.
