Un-Recipe – Chicken and Tomato Sandwich

On occasion when Pete is away, I have been known to get carried away and seem to get suckers on my butt as I never leave my computer for very long.  Recently was such a day (and night) which meant cooking supper was not top priority and I only thought of it when my worm was awake and needed to be fed immediately!  Seriously quick and easy would have to do – hence the Chicken and Tomato Sandwich was born, which made for a delicious light supper and was perfectly balanced with a Gin and Tonic 🙂 which I enjoyed at my desk.

Un-Recipe – Chicken and Tomato Sandwich


1 chicken breast slightly flattened with the heel of your hand
Smoky barbecue spice
2 slices of brown bread
Homemade Mayonnaise
Homemade Guinness Mustard

  1. Fry the chicken in a little butter sprinkled with the spice.
  2. Butter the bread and spread the mayonnaise on one slice and the mustard on the other.
  3. Top one of the slices  with the sliced tomato.
  4. Once cooked cut the chicken breast into slices and place on top of the tomato.
  5. Top with the second slice of bread and cut in half.

Summer soups simply don’t get any easier than this and you if making it for a dinner, safe yourself some time and make it the day before.

½ tsp salt


  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth and place in the fridge.  Overnight is perfect.
