If you have left over chicken, you must try this sandwich! You can use pita bread or any type of bread you like, as long as you put a big dollop of this garlicky yogurt spread inside. It’s super easy to put everything together, about 10 minutes, and it’s enough for 4-5 sandwiches. If I have left-over chicken, I usually have all the rest of the ingredients needed at home to make this.
When I make one of my signature sandwiches, I love to stuff them with loads of herbs and vegetables and only a little bit of protein. My favorites are green onions, tomatoes, green pepper and cilantro in my sandwich. Sometimes I add other greens like watercress or arugula because I adore their peppery bitterness.
I used to go to a Lebanese deli near my old office in Redmond, WA. They made this super garlicky chicken sandwich that I absolutely loved and would order frequently. I deconstructed the sauce in the sandwich and came up with this. I think it’s pretty close.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt
- 4 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 tsp. crushed red pepper or paprika
- 1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- left over cooked chicken, sliced or shredded
and make it even better adder-ons:
- green pepper
- green onion
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients above the chicken. Mix well. Put your sandwich together. Put a big generous dollop of the yogurt sauce in the sandwich, and spread evenly. Stuff the sandwich with chicken and any or all of the adder-ons and enjoy!
