Special K crusted chicken sandwich

 In Chicken, Lunch
 Crusted chicken sandwich
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I am completely obsessed with sandwiches. Bread in general, really. I mean, how can something stuffed between two slices of bread ever be bad? The sad thing is that bread is not the greatest of things to be addicted to and thus I have grown to love wholegrain breads that not only add necessary nutrients and fibre to your diet but also pack serious flavour.

When Special K asked that I develop some Summer recipes for them I immediately thought of a sandwich but had no idea how I would include a cereal into a sandwich. I thought of baking a Special K bread but decided against it. I’ve wanted to make a crumbed chicken sandwich for a while now and decided to use the Special K to add crunch to the flattened chicken breasts.

I made the sandwich using soy & linseed bread and topped it with garlicky tzatziki and baby lettuce. The end result was a sandwich to drool over filled with fantastic flavour and lots of texture. Definitely the perfect Summer sandwich and one I’ll be making again!
