sandwiches. surprised? curried chicken sandwiches

It’s rainy, it’s icy and there is slush galore outside. My shoes got quite a soaking from stepping into too many slushy puddles and I had to change into warm, dry clothes as soon as I got home. It certainly doesn’t seem like a day for something like sandwiches…but regardless of the weather, I decided that sandwiches would make the perfect lunch. Using some leftover chicken and Portugese buns fresh from the market, I whipped up a totally delicious meal that had Cornelius and I clamouring for seconds. Lucky for us, there is plenty of leftover sandwich filling for tomorrow and lucky me, these sandwiches taste great with a nice hot cup of tea.

    yeee-haw! A picture!!!

    Mmmm, this chicken concoction sounds so good! Dried cherries and pecans…never would have thought to add them to chicken before.

    What kind of curry paste did you use?
    The green one or the red one?

    Must be the season. I made some awesome sandwiches from a leftover pork roast and fontina cheese, grilled in my new panini press.

    Yum! Always looking for new sandwich fillings. I bet it would be even better the following day, after the flavors marinate for a while!

    This is my first visit and judging from your title (and my love of sandwiches) I’ll be visiting often. Panini? Wraps? I love them all.
