As I keep saying, sandwiches are an absolute lifesaver. Monday or SUnday, most days you will find me munching on a salad and having a sandwich on the side.

I just simply love them. Whether made from scratch or simply to convert existing leftovers, sandwiches simply are the best.

Today I had some leftover chicken in my fridge, so I shredded it, added some cheese and lo behold.. a yummy treat.


  • Sliced bread- 4
  • Butter/ sandwich spread- enough for 4 slices
  • Cooked chicken- 1/2 cup
  • Onion, sliced, lightly sauteed- 1/4 cup
  • Cheese, grated- 2-3 tbsp
  • Oil- to spread on the bread slices
  • Salt- to taste
  • English Mustard, 1/2 tsp- to spread on the slice
  • Mayonnaise- 1 tsp- to spread on the slice



Step 1

Shred the chicken and lightly saute the onions.

Step 2

Spread the butter & Mayonnaise (optional) and Mustard paste on the bread and put the chicken,onions and cheese on it. Adjust the salt as required.

Step 3

Put another buttered slice on top & firmly close the sandwich.

Step 4

With a pastry brush, apply some oil on the top and bottom of the sandwich and pop into a hot grill for sometime till nicely browned.

Step 5

This can be eaten straightaway. If packing for lunch, remmebr to pack it in foil, so it stays soft for a long time.

Step 6

Serve with a hot tomato ketchup.
