Ultimate herby chicken club sandwich

Oh yes. This is the sandwich to end all sandwiches. And I am a big time sandwich LOVER.

It certainly isn’t one for the faint hearted, because there’s a lot of mayo but at least I’ve chucked in a few lettuce leaves and some tomatoes for health.

Triple decker, stacked up with herby butter roasted chicken and crispy bacon, what’s not to like? Make sure you put LOADS of black pepper on the mayo for each layer, it just adds a whole new dimension of flavour.

You might have to unhinge your jaw like a snake to get this sandwich down your gullet but it’s worth it, trust me. Once you taste this bad boy, it’ll ruin every other sandwich – don’t settle for that limp prawn mayo in the meal deal.

  • 4 slices of smoked streaky bacon, cooked and crispy
  • Salt and pepper
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. Cut 3 slices per sandwich from your sourdough loaf and spread the mayo on all sides. Preheat a frying pan over a medium high heat and toast off your slices until lovely and golden brown.
  2. Slice your chicken breast into thin strips while your bread is toasting in the pan. Slice up your eggs, tomatoes and lettuce as well and set aside.
  3. Spread mayonnaise on your toasted slices of bread and season well with salt and pepper, then layer up lettuce, tomatoes, eggs and bacon. Top with your middle slice of bread and repeat the process, swapping out the bacon for the sliced roast chicken.
  4. Stick in 2 skewers to help hold your sandwich closed while you slice it in half and then get stuck in - it's a messy one!
