Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

What do you do when you just have one chicken leg in the freezer but you have two mouths to feed?

Simple: Make chicken soup for hubby then shred the chicken to make sandwiches 🙂

Ingredients:

Pre cooked chicken leg – I had boiled it in water with onions, garlic and ginger

3 brown bread buns halved

2 tomatoes sliced

1 cucumber sliced

1 garlic clove halved

Mozzarella cheese slices

Tomato sauce

Margarine

This sandwich is pretty simple to do and gets ready in under 15 minutes, well if you had pre-cooked the chicken.

Start by pulling the chicken meat from the bone, hence pulled chicken.

Tada, chicken shreds.

Now, prepare the buns to get ready to assemble the sandwich.

plain looking buns

Apply margarine on both halves, then toast them in a hot skillet for about 3 minutes or until they are crispy.

not so plain looking buns

Rub the garlic halves on the crispy side to just give the bread a light garlic taste.

Now, we are ready to assemble.

Start by putting the cheese slices on one half.

Microwave for about 30 seconds to melt the cheese.

Pile on the remaining ingredients.

Add the tomatoes.

Add the chicken shreds.

almost done 🙂

Finally top off with the cucumber, then put the tomato sauce. In case you have mayonnaise you can also put that.

Lunch: Sandwich and Fruit Yoghurt

Didn’t have leftover food from yesterday night because we had take out. Since I’m trying to keep off fries this is what I made for lunch, while at work.

Vanilla flavoured yoghurt.
Fruit pieces: Strawberries and Grapes (seeded)

I carried the fruits from home.

Plus I carried some slices of bread, beef brawn slices, a tomato, cucumber and some mozzarella chunks for the sandwich.

Brown sliced bread,beef brawn slices, cucumber slices, tomato slices and some mozzarella.
Pop in the microwave for a few seconds just to get the cheese melting. Drizzle some tomato sauce and enjoy.
Quick lunch 🙂

Verdict:

Delicious.

Try making this for a quick and easy lunch, while at work. It’s very satisfying, I can guarantee that.

Tomato, Cucumber and Mozzarella Sandwich

I guess by now you guys have noticed the way I love making sandwiches. I think they are pretty easy to do plus you can basically use anything you have on hand as long as you have bread :-D.

I prepared to for breakfast yesterday. I still had some buns from earlier this week.

Ingredients:

1 tomato sliced

1/2 cucumber sliced

Mozzarella cheese

3 buns halved

Salt and black pepper to taste. (though I forgot to add these)

*in case you are using more than 3 buns, add more tomato and cucumber.

Start by topping one half of the buns with the tomato slices.

Tomatoes!!! Yummy

Then add the cucumber slices.

Colour blocking: Green and Red 🙂

At this point season with salt and pepper.

Finally top it off with some cheese chunks.

yummy

I think it’s just me but I like warming sandwiches, I feel they taste much better.

So I popped mine in the microwave for 30 seconds.

‘sandwiched’

Enjoy.

Don’t forget to put some ketchup or tomato sauce.

Did I mention that sandwiches make great snacks for picnics? Also good for lunch.
