The ultimate sandwich filling: Chicken mayo with lemon mayonnaise

A few years ago, a chef friend of mine shared his recipe for ‘gourmet’ chicken mayo. Once you have tried this version, lunch will never be the same.

By adding just a few simple ingredients, you can create a gourmet version to the standard sandwich filling. You can use any left over roast chicken, or quickly pan fry two chicken fillets.

You can serve this filling on any bread of your choice. It goes great on a toasted ciabatta or in a pita with salad.
