I have not posted in forever, but I’ve been so busy. I just got back from Jamaica and for the next few days, want to share some culinary inspiration from the country. I love Jamaican curry so I decided to craft a rotisserie chicken sandwich that captures flavors from the island: curry, mango and banana.
I am crazy about this sandwich and it takes 10 minutes to prepare so it’s perfect for a busy night (like my nights have been).
I hope you enjoy it! I will be back to posting this week.
Chicken Sandwich with Curried Mayo, Mango and Banana
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons minced red onion
2 rolls or ciabatta rolls
1 large rotisserie chicken breast, sliced
1 large mango, peeled and sliced into thick slices
1 small ripe banana, peeled and sliced
Slices of red or green bell pepper (desired amount)
Handful of cilantro
Salt to taste
Stir together the mayonnaise, curry powder, onion and set aside.
Pull the chicken breast off the rotisserie chicken and cut it into slices that will fit on your bread.
Peel and slice your mango and banana. Slice a desired amount of red or green bell pepper.
Slice the bread in half and generously spread curried mayonnaise mixture on both sides. Place the chicken on the bottom and top it with mango. Place the sliced bananas on the top layer pressing into the mayonnaise using the mayonnaise as a glue to keep them in place.
Add a dash of salt to the banana. Top with sliced bell pepper and some fresh cilantro. Close and consume.
