Chicken Sandwich

Yes I know , the photo doesn't really look very good, mainly because it was made for dinner and it was getting dark, so light wasn't so  good. One of those rushed days , where you want to just finish up and sit down for dinner. This is one of those recipes where that left over roast chicken gets ended up.
  I wasn't sure about the apple but I had this green apple half one day ( my little fussy one always eats one half ),  so I just threw it into the mixture. You know what! it was  delicious!  I think the combination of chicken and the crunchy celery and green apple gave a nice  combo.  Its okay if you dont have celery , and replace dijon mustard with the one you use for hot dogs, although that mustard has a more sharper taste and is more yellow. I pilled the mixture into hot dog buns but you can use regular sandwich bread, croissants, submarine buns etc.

Recipe : Chicken Sandwich

Makes 4 hot dog bun sarnies

1 cup cooked shredded chicken ( to shred , cut the cooked chicken into slices then using your fingers, tear each slice into thin shreds)
2 tbsp finely chopped ( thats half of one celery stick)
1/2 a green apple, peeled and finely chopped
1 small shallot , or 1/2 a small onion or 2 spring onions, finely chopped
(to those who like a bit of heat 1 green chilli chopped finely)
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup  good mayonaise
a big pinch of freshly ground black pepper
a few drops of tabasco
pinch salt
4 hot dog buns

Place the chicken, all the chopped ingredients in a bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients, except the buns of course and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Cut   the hot dog bun as you would do to place a hot dog sausage, and then fill it up with the chicken mixture.
