Let me introduce you this simple, satisfying, and flavorful homemade Chicken Club Sandwich that you can put together in a little time. This is the juncture where simple meets delicious!
Stop skipping Breakfasts or better still, save yourself some money and the stress of stopping by the coffee shop on busy weekday mornings by making this ridiculously easy Chicken Club Sandwich. It is made with leftover or freshly cooked Chicken shredded and tossed in Ketchup and Mayonnaise with a splash of lemon Juice. Sandwiched between layers of freshly toasted Bread sandwiched with another layer of Lettuce and Fresh Tomatoes and Pickles.
This Club Sandwich is Hearty and downright good for the soul. I mean it when I say so because my kids are the most judgemental food critique I’ve ever known plus they are also picky eaters and they are very selective when it comes to sandwich in general especially the ones made with processed meat. Well, except hotdogs!
I’m actually grateful for this because I’m not a fan of processed meat either. However, this chicken Club Sandwich and this Turkey salad Sandwich is a sandwich meal they will ask for over and over again. It’s not only filling but it’s also flavorful and it’s going to make a great Breakfast or even dinner.
- I used Chicken thighs for this Sandwich, however, you can use any Chicken part of your choice. It has to be boneless and skinless.
- If you don’t mind the calorie, you can add some cheese, if you wish.
This Club sandwich is the best thing about leftover chicken because, you can use the leftover boiled Chicken, Grilled Chicken, Roasted Chicken or anyhow leftover chicken for this recipe. On the same note, if you don’t have any leftover Chicken, simply boil some and put this together!
This recipe is also highly flexible, you can easily adjust the recipe to serve your family, a crowd of hungry guests, or just your hungry rumbling stomach. In just about 1o minutes, you will be satisfying all these needs. You can even slash the calorie a little further by going for whole grain bread and by using reduced-fat mayonnaise.
Easy Club Sandwich Recipe
- 1/2 pound boneless Chicken
- 2 large Tomatoes Cut into slices
- 12 slices Pickles or as desired
- 9 slices Bread Toasted
- 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
- 3 Tbsp Ketchup
- 1 Bunch Lettuce leaves
- Salt and Pepper to taste. To taste
- If using fresh Chicken (If not skip to the next instruction) - Place chicken breasts into a saucepan, season with Salt and Pepper (or as desired) and pour enough water to cover it. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cook until the chicken meat is tender.
- Transfer the Chicken to a wide plate. If hot, allow it to cool, and shred the chicken meat with two forks.
- Transfer the chicken to a deep bowl, add the Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Lemon and Salt & pepper (Optional). Mix until everything is well blended and set aside.
- Meanwhile, toast 9 slices of bread. Then, lay a slice of toast on a plate, or a board add a thick layer of the Chicken mixture on it and cover it up with another layer of toast. Top this layer with the about two Lettuce leaves, Pickles and Tomato slices and cover it up with the third slice of toast.
- Divide the arranged sandwich diagonally into halves or quarters and pin with a toothpick or a skewer all the way to the bottom to keep it in place. Enjoy!
- Feel free to use any leftover Chicken for this: Boiled, baked or grilled, all will work well.
- You should layer your club sandwich the way you like it, you don't necessarily have to layer it like mine - be creative with it.
