Ingredients

  • 1 rotisserie or roasted free-range chicken, shredded
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 farmhouse loaf, thickly sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup basil, rinsed
  • For the home-made mayonnaise
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 2 t Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 250 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 T lemon juice

Cooking Instructions

Add the shredded chicken to a bowl with the mayonnaise and mix with a little seasoning.

Spoon onto rounds of the toasted farmhouse loaf and top with another slice of toast.

Stack the tomato and onion to form a tower effect and top with fresh basil leaves.

Season to taste and serve alongside the sandwich.

To make the home-made mayonnaise:

Add the egg, mustard, garlic, seasoning (to taste) and lemon juice, to a blender and blend until combined.

With the motor still running, slowly pour the oil, in a thin, steady stream, into the mixture until it becomes thick and creamy.

Cook's note: Follow our recipe for perfectly succulent roast chicken made at home. This sandwich is also great for lunchboxes and picnics.
