Sandwiches may seem simple - bread, filling, and bread - but their infinite variations make them taste so much more complex! Take your taste buds on an adventure with one of these mouth-watering possibilities.
1. 5 Spice Chicken Sandwiches with Wasabi Mayo
A great way to stretch your food dollar is to roast a chicken and then strip off all the meat, saving some for sandwiches the next day. This one has a tasty marinade that pairs well with Chinese vegetables, with a little added zing from wasabi mayo. You can also use chicken breast halves instead of a whole chicken, if you wish.
2. The Hickory Dickory Cluck Chicken Sandwich
A summer classic! This sandwich gets its kick from the hickory BBQ sauce and is topped with a creamy, crunchy coleslaw.
3. Chicken Sandwiches with Lemon-Basil Zucchini and Boursin
This is a perfect sandwich to make in late summer when zucchini and red peppers are at their peak. The lemon zest and sweet basil flavours paired with the Boursin cheese really take this sandwich to a new level.
4. Dad's Favourite Chicken Sandwich
This prizewinning chicken sandwich uses beer to marinate the chicken. The toppings of the sandwich are all classic complements to beer, such as old cheddar and horseradish. This is a simple but delicious sandwich that’s well worth adding to your repertoire.
5. Ground Chicken & Salsa Sloppy Joes
These sloppy joes are far healthier than the traditional recipe, but just as messy! Bottled salsa gives the sauce more flavour and ground chicken means a leaner joe.

6. Deluxe California Club Sandwich
Every so often you may find yourself alone on the weekend around lunchtime craving something delicious and different. My favourite sandwich is definitely the club sandwich. The endless flavour possibilities keep it original. The California style club is a popular and lower carbohydrate option to popular diner styles because it omits the third layer of bread. The avocado spread is also a healthier alternative to traditional butter and mayonnaise.
7. Croissant BLT with Sautéed Chicken
The French croissant is combined with the American BLT toppings making this sandwich perfect to enjoy for dinner or lunch.
