I’ve said before that toasted sandwich’s are an excellent way to use up leftovers and this recipe is another great example.
It lets you turn your leftover roast chicken into a great tasting toasted sandwich.
The ingredients for this sweet chili chicken toasted sandwich are:
- Sweet Chili Sauce
- Cheddar Cheese
- 2 Slices of bread
The key ingredient in this toastie is the sweet chili sauce. It really elevates the chicken with, not surprisingly, a hot sweet taste. When you get your sweet chili sauce be sure to see how hot it is and give it a taste before adding to the chicken to make sure you get the balance right for you.
- Put your (leftover) chicken in a bowl, add the sweet chili sauce and mix together
- Lay out the bread and put mayonnaise on each slice
- Spread out the chicken mix on 1 slice of bread
- Top with grated cheddar cheese
- Place the other slice of bread on top and push down
- Place the sandwich in the toasted sandwich maker for 10 minutes until golden brown
This toasted sandwich goes really well with a selection of fresh vegetables on the side like cucumber or carrot. The fresh taste goes really well with the hot chili sauce.
Another great side dish or dessert would be a Lassi. A Lassi is a classic Malaysian yogurt drink that goes perfectly with hot and spicy food. Mango Lassi is the most popular flavor.
