Recipe: lemon and thyme sandwich chicken

Chicken on bread

This recipe for lemon thyme sandwich chicken is quick, easy and delicious. I say ‘recipe’ but it’s so simple it barely classes as a recipe. Sometimes the simple things are the best though! And by the way, if you need some roast chicken inspiration, have a look at my recipe for 40 garlic roast chicken.


  • 1 chicken breast or approx 150-200g of leftover roast chicken
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tablespoon of fresh thyme
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper

Lemon and thyme sandwich chicken recipe

Serves 2 (enough to fill 2 rolls or sandwiches).

Shred the chicken into small pieces using a fork then mix in the mayonnaise — I added 1 tablespoon but add more if you want a creamier sandwich filling.

Once the chicken and mayonnaise are mixed together well, add the juice from half a lemon, a tablespoon of fresh thyme and the salt and pepper. And you’re done!

Sensible bit: eat your sandwich chicken on the day you make it if you are using left over chicken.
