Chicken and avocado sandwich

1
10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread, white farmhouse - lightly toasted
  • 1 handful of roast chicken, leftover - or 1 small poached chicken breast, shredded
  • 2 egg yolks, medium
  • 1 avocado, large and very ripe, mashed until smooth
  • sea salt
  • lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • red onion, slices
  • 1 handful of rocket, small
  • freshly ground black pepper

Method

1
Make the mayonnaise with a pestle and mortar by rapidly mixing the mashed avocado gradually into the egg yolks. Season to taste with sea salt and lemon juice. Fold in the cold chicken
2
Layer the rocket onto the toasted bread first, then the chicken avocado mayo, followed by a good grind of black pepper before layering on as many onion slices as you think you can manage, it depends on how much tang you like! To make this a bit more special as a weekend lunch at home, rather than an office sandwich bag this is actually rather good with a cold beer
