One of the joys of having a chicken dinner is that you often have leftovers that are just begging to be piled high in a sandwich. Next time you find yourself in this lucky position, remember these ideas and you’ll never go the mayo-salt-and-pepper route again. Enjoy!
1. Coronation Creation Chicken Sandwich
A juicy grilled chicken sandwich bursting with flavours of orange, peach, tarragon, and horseradish.
2. Pan Roasted Ginger Ale Chicken Pita
Ginger ale in a sandwich? It really works, especially when combined with unconventional sandwich ingredients like black beans, quinoa, and mango.
3. Mediterranean Shish Kebab with Grainy Mustard Aioli Sauce
Remove the chicken from the skewers and stuff them in pita pockets with any leftover vegetables. If you prefer, add your own favourite vegetables like lettuce, tomato, onions and cucumber and some of the leftover aioli sauce or mayonnaise.
4. Meatloaf Makeover with Chipotle Ketchup
Enjoy a slice of this leftover meatloaf served between two slices of toasted whole grain bread. Add some special sauce by mixing a little mayonnaise to the chipotle ketchup and top it all off with your choice of vegetables.
5. Dad's Favourite Chicken Sandwich
Dad isn’t the only one who thinks this spicy beer-marinated chicken is the bomb! This is a simple but delicious sandwich that is well worth adding to your repertoire.
6. Chicken Club Twister
All of your classic club sandwich ingredients are neatly tucked into a convenient pita pocket.
7. Chicken Sandwiches with Lemon-Basil Zucchini and Boursin

8. Deluxe California Club Sandwich
Omit the third slice of bread and cut on carbs with this California-style club sandwich. The added avocado spread gives it a delightfully creamy texture and is a healthier alternative to mayonnaise.
9. Warm Greek Chicken & Vegetable Wraps
These low-fat, low-calorie, healthy wraps are the perfect light meal to enjoy during the summer months.
