Simple Chicken Sandwich

A very simple chicken sandwich, with a basic sautéed chicken filling along with fresh cabbage and stringy mozzarella cheese. You can keep it simple like this or make it even more flavorful by adding different fixings into it.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved chicken sandwiches. My mom makes delicious chicken mayo sandwiches and I was totally hooked from then on. Did I post my mom’s mayo sandwich recipe? I think I didn’t. Omg!! Why didn’t I?!! In shaa Allah I will post it sometime soon. Today I have for you a different recipe. I found this recipe from this video by recipes of the world and I love how delicious and light this sandwich is.

This sandwich is perfect for picnics, get-together, for a light name it. But I’m sure in this scorching summer happening now in the Gulf region, picnics are not something we look forward to. Can’t wait for the weather to cool down so that we could do more outdoor activities. Anyway, now I recommend you make this sandwich and have an indoor picnic. 😀 Give it a try and please do let me know how it was for you. Would love to know. Enjoy!
