All too often, we are served sandwiches consisting of limp bread and flavourless, uninspiring fillings. So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to change all that and show you with just a little care and attention, that a sandwich and be exciting and leave you wanting more.
9 slices white spelt bread
2 free range or organic chicken breasts
100 g smokey bacon rashers
1 small red onion
50 g rocket
mayonnaise, for spreading
salt and pepper
Heat a grill pan over high heat and grill the bread on both sides. Halve the avocados, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash roughly using a fork and season with a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Finely slice the onion and halve the chicken breasts horizontally, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil and fry the bacon until crispy. Remove on to a plate. Fry the chicken in the same pan with the bacon fat for about 3 minutes on each side.
Lay out the slices of grilled bread. Spread the mashed avocado on the first layer and top with the crispy bacon. On the second slice of bread, spread generously with mayonnaise. Top with a handful of rocket leaves and some red onion. Slice the chicken breasts and lay them on top.
Place the chicken layer on top of the avocado layer, topping the sandwich off with the remaining grilled bread and securing it with a skewer.
Serve on wooden board or plates and dig in!
