Creamy mayo flavoured with pickled jalapeños elevates an everyday smoked chicken sandwich and turns your boring lunch into something to look forward to.
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. This smoked chicken sandwich is a prime example of simple ingredients coming together to make the best sandwich recipe. (If you can even call it a recipe, it’s so easy!)
Average sandwiches with cold meat/cuts are on our lunch menu often. They are so easy and quick to throw together and is there any better after school snack than a good sandwich? 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.
This jalapeño mayonnaise 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 to make a non-pork BLT. The slight smoke of the chicken along with the juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce and spicy-creamy jalapeño mayo made these sandwiches simply delectable.

I have been using this jalapeño mayo on sandwiches since you first shared this recipe and my family now call me the queen of sandwiches even though we all know YOU are really the queen of all sandwiches. ?
Hahaha, I’ll take that title happily!

This is such a great looking sandwich! I love the kick of flavor and heat from the jalapeño!
Thanks so much Laura! 🙂
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.
It adds just that little touch of magic. 🙂
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!
This sandwich looks so tasty. Love the mayo.
Your photos are beautiful as always!
What a delicious sandwich for lunch. Must try!
