Ingredients:

FOR CHICKEN

  • 2 chicken breasts (cut into cubes)
  • 2 tbspns soy sauce
  • 1 chicken cube
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt and pepper
  • Splash of Any hot sauce

FOR SPREAD

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 scallions (green part, shopped)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Some salt
  • ½ tspn garlic powder
  • Some black pepper
  • Some white pepper

FOR SANDWICHES

  • 2 loaves of white sandwich bread
  • Some fancy lettuce

Procedure:

-For chicken put everything in a saucepan, cover it with the lid and boil the chicken until all the juices are dry.

-Take out the chicken on a plate and let it cool down for a bit. Now with hands or forks, shred the chicken but please don’t use the food processor as we want shredded chicken not ground chicken. Ground chicken tastes weird plus gives a weird texture to the sandwiches.

-Add all the ingredients given for spread to this shredded chicken and mix. Now you have got chicken spread.

-Divide the bread into sets of two slices. Spread this spread on one bread slice; put a piece of lettuce on it and then the other slice of bread on top. Cut the whole sandwich into 4 triangles. Do the same with other sets of bread.

-Arrange them onto a tray cover it with the plastic wrap and enjoy with your family and friends at the picnic spot.
