Chicken tikka sandwich ingredients

You’ll just need a handful of ingredients to make a delicious, creamy spicy chicken sandwich filler

  • 50g shredded chicken – (around a handful) you could also make this with shredded leftover turkey.
  • 1 tbs natural yogurt
  • 1/2 tbs mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp tikka curry paste – be sure to use a curry paste that can be eaten uncooked – or use a 1/4 tsp of curry powder instead.
  • Bread roll – I like to use the wholemeal deli rolls topped with seeds or cracked wheat.
  • 1 cup of salad leaves – or baby spinach
  • 6 slices cucumber

  • Split the bread roll – I make this without butter as the chicken tikka sandwich filler is creamy, but if you prefer you can butter the bread.
  • Add the salad leaves – put a layer of salad leaves into the bread roll.
  • Add the chicken sandwich filler – cram it all into the sandwich and then top with cucumber slices and tuck in!

Make chicken sandwich filler your way

  • Swap the tikka paste for any other curry paste you like.
  • Go low fat – use low fat yogurt and mayonnaise in your dressing.
  • Add some fruit – try chopped mango or sultanas mixed into the chicken tikka sandwich filler.

  • Egg Salad Sandwich – sometimes a simple egg salad is just so good. Soft multigrain bread, crunchy lettuce and creamy egg mayonnaise. Just so good.

Great for eating as soon as they’re made or for packing in a lunchbox for eating on the go!

When I’m packing these for school lunch I always add a few extra snacks – bags of mini popadoms, fresh fruit salad and a chocolate flapjack.
