Smoked chicken sandwich with jalapeño mayo

Don’t you just love a good sandwich? Good bread, flavoursome toppings, something saucy to tie it all together. I just can’t get enough!

Average sandwiches with cold meat/cuts are on our lunch menu often. They are so easy and quick to throw together and after school, there’s just not time for much else I’m afraid. But honestly, I just can’t have any more boring sandwiches. And so I try to jazz them up a little by adding a sauce/spread/condiment to take all the same ingredients and give them new life.

Smoked chicken sandwich with jalapeño mayo

This jalapeño mayo has been just that over the last few weeks. I’ve used it on everything from left-over roast chicken sandwiches to soft rolls stuffed with hickory-smoked ham. It’s a winner on all fronts. A few weeks ago I made us these smoked chicken sandwiches inspired by the much beloved BLT. We had friends over who don’t eat pork and so I decided to use up some sliced smoked chicken I had in the fridge. The slight smoke of the chicken along with the juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce and spicy-creamy jalapeño mayo made these sandwiches simply delectable.

    I’m always looking for new sandwich ideas as I have to pack 4 lunch boxes every day. I love the idea of jazzing things up with something simple like the chilli mayo.

    I never think about flavouring my mayo. If I don’t want chillies, what else can I use?

      It’s a great little trick. The options are endless. Garlic, smoked paprika, lemon, capers, gherkins, basil and sundried tomatoes all work well!
