Everybody loves a chicken and mayo sandwich! And white bread works a treat. I like to slice them into finger sandwiches with the crusts off. Serve with grapes and Cheezels for a picnic spectacular.

  • 1 store-bought barbecue chicken
  • 235 g (1 cup) mayonnaise
  • salt and black pepper, to taste

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


  1. Take the chicken meat off the bone, discard the skin and bones and shred the meat into a bowl. Add the mayonnaise and season to taste.
  2. Spread the bread slices with butter. Top half the bread with the chicken mixture, then sandwich together with remaining bread slices. Using a serrated knife, remove the crusts and cut each sandwich lengthways into thirds.  Serve with grapes, strawberries, raspberries and Cheezels on the side.
