Chicken Salad Sandwich

The Chicken Salad Sandwich 

Childhood memories are made up of people and food. This sandwich takes many of us back to birthday parties, picnics, and movies. At times, simple things like this can simply never be forgotten. 
And so I share my version of a sandwich that many of my aunts used to make for us. It is always appreciated, even if it does not hold the same affection or sentiment for those who get to eat it in my kitchen!

Chicken Salad in a brioche bun

12 brioche buns

1 1/2 kg/ 3.3 lb of roasted or poached chicken chopped finely
1 cup mayonnaise or as needed
1 tsp mustard
2 tbsp sweet gherkin relish
freshly cracked black pepper to taste
pinch of sugar

Mix everything well, ensuring the mixture is moist. 
Fill the brioche buns generously. 
Serve fresh.


The buns should be milk buns or brioche that have a tinge of sweetness and are wonderfully soft. 
The mixture can be made and kept for up to 48 hours, covered in the refrigerator. It cannot be frozen. 
Use your favourite mayonnaise. 
Taste for salt and pepper. 
If you wish to prepare the chicken at home, you can poach the chicken in herbs, salt, whole pepper, cloves, an onion, carrot, and celery.
