After all, I’ve been eating them my whole life. Yeah, I know – you too. But I suppose what sets me apart from the average PB&J-types is the fact that I’ll turn pretty much anything into a sandwich.
Chicken fingers, beef stir fry, sausages and peppers… give me two slices of Dempsters bakery fresh bread and allow me to work my magic. In fact, I’ve even concocted a Mashed Potato sandwich (layer warm mash potatoes with corned beef and beef au jus), Greek Salad sandwiches (remove the olives and layer with Natural Selections Oven Roasted Chicken and tzatziki sauce) and my personal fave, the Curried Chicken sandwich (shred leftover Thai yellow curried chicken and toss with chopped apple, celery and mayonnaise). Got leftovers? Then you’ve got your inspiration – just Sandwich It!
Today I’d love to share one of my favourite ways to get out of the lunchtime rut – a General Tao Chicken Sandwich. Super easy and super yummy!
What You’ll Need (Serves 2):
About 6-8 leftover chicken fingers
1/4 cup of your favourite General Tao stir-fry sauce
4 slices of flightly toasted Dempsters bread (choose your fave!)
Some crispy greens for colour (and health, obvi)
Just Sandwich It:
Toss the chicken fingers with the General Tao stir-fry sauce and warm through. (If you’re on the go, you can heat them in a microwave-safe dish). Use excess sauce as a spread for sandwich halves. Assemble the sandwich. Enjoy!
The crispyness of the chicken fingers perfectly sets off the sticky-sweet sauce. I chose good ol’ Dempsters White, because dammit, I love white bread. Betcha you’ll never look at boring chicken fingers the same way again!
