Chicken Club Sandwiches

There are several ways of making Club sandwiches but here I am gonna tell you the recipe of one of my favourites and the one I grew up eating, Chicken club sandwich. It is a very common snack sandwich in Pakistan which is served at almost every restaurant in the country. You can get it at Lahore International Airport as well.

It is a 2 storey sandwich, one layered with creamy chicken filling and the other one with boiled egg, lettuce and tomato. Tastes yummy with hot fries and coleslaw.

Ingredients:

  • 2 thick cut bread slices (I use “Lawsons – Traditional White” in Australia you can get whichever one you like)
  • 1 good ripe avocado
  • 1 lemon
  • A pinch of parsley
  • Some butter (to toast)(at room temperature)
  • 4 eggs
  • Some water
  • 1 tbspn distilled vinegar
  • Some salt and pepper to season

Procedure:

-Heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

-Smear the butter on your thick cut bread slices and put them onto a baking tray and bake for about 5 – 10 minutes or until the toast is rusty and crispy.

-Meanwhile make your avocado spread. Take out the avocado in a bowl and mash it. squeeze some lemon juice, sprinkle some parsley and mix.

-Take out the toasts from oven, let them sit on a cooling rack until we get our eggs poached.

-For poaching the eggs, fill your 22cm saucepan half with water and bring it to a boil. Add distilled vinegar. Now crack the egg in a small bowl and very carefully take it near the boiling water. Dip half of your bowl in the water and leave the egg in the water. Do same with other eggs. Let them cook for 30 seconds and then remove the saucepan from the heat and cover it for exact 3 minutes.

-Now with a slotted spoon take the eggs out and put them on the plate.

-We have got all our products ready, our spread is ready, our toasts are ready and our eggs are poached so let’s assemble them.

-Spread some avocado dip on the toast (Be generous with that) and place 2 eggs on each toast. Season with some salt and pepper and serve.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups strong black coffee + 1/3 cup orange juice or any coffee liqueur
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 300ml thickened cream, lightly whipped
  • 1 large packet of sponge fingers (savoiardi)
  • Cocoa and shaved chocolate, for dusting

Method:

-Pour coffee into a shallow dish. Set aside.

-Now take 3 mixing bowls, small for whipping the cream, medium for whipping the egg whites and large for whipping the egg yolks and mixing everything at the end.

TIP: If you don’t like or you don’t want to wash whip attachments after every use, whip egg whites first, then cream and then yolks and sugar. Like this you can move things fast.

-Beat egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl with electric beaters until pale and thick. Add the mascarpone and whipped cream, mixing gently until just combined.

-Beat egg whites in a medium bowl with electric beaters until soft peaks form. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold eggwhites into the mascarpone mixture.

-Dip enough biscuits into the coffee mixture to cover the base of a 19cm square ceramic dish. Cover the biscuits with one-third of the mascarpone mixture. Repeat layers 2 times, ending with the cream. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Dust generously with cocoa and serve.
