BERRY CHOPS: Honey Pepper Chicken Sandwich

The last time I did a food post, I shared Cakes's Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe. The comments were very encouraging and I made a mental note to try and do more food posts. But please note, when I'm the one in the kitchen, the meals are VERY VERY simple and straightforward. Left to me I shouldn't have to spend more than 15 minutes in the kitchen - especially when I'm very hungry. So for the more elaborate, time-involving meals, Cakes will be the cook. For simple ones like today's own, it shall be moi, ~Chef Berrie~ (make sure you say it in a French accent!)

Today, I bring you the Honey Pepper Chicken Sandwich.



Ingredients
Shredded Smoked Chicken (or as in our household, Smoked Chicken that Cakes shreds himself)
Honey
Dry Pepper - it can be black pepper or Cameroon pepper (the latter is my preferred choice)
Oil - I prefer Canola Cooking Spray for this
Lettuce
Bread - personal favorite is the one from Grand Square (grocery store in Nigeria)

1a. - Get your ingredients ready.

1b. - If your chicken isn't shredded already, shred it.


2. Lightly grease your frying pan, and put it on medium heat.

3. Chuck your chicken in, followed by honey and your dry pepper.



4. When your chicken is a nice golden brown, it's ready for your sandwich (don't forget the lettuce).






5. VOILA! Lunch is served! Or breakfast. Or dinner.






Wasn't that the easiest meal ever?!

  1. Soooo sooo easy!!!
    I need to make this, the honey chicken reminds me of Bourbon chicken, general tsao chicken and those chicken dishes you can get to sample in the food courts of American Malls.
    Yummyyyy :)

    1. That's kinda what I was going for. Homemade Sandwiches don't have to boring. Not every time bread and egg

    3. Yay Ebony! I'm so sorry it took so long to get the products.

      One way I like toasting my bread is directly in the frying pan. It's a different kind of toast taste

  6. Issorite! I see myself using this in a sauce for rice though. All these sandwich tins are like pringles to me. Once I pop, I can't stop. Nice one with the honey. I have to try that.

    1. LOL you can't eat more than 2 sandwiches nowwww. I guess you can use the recipe as a sauce for rice (basmati for me). I might use it with couscous though.

  13. Ah! I enjoy reading about step-by-step process, I only wish the delicious-looking end product was right in front of me now, I am rather hungry. Lol

    I like the idea of a cooking spray, one can go use oil in moderation that way.

    Thank you for sharing this, it looks easy enough to try out.

  16. Great idea! I will be using turkey meat to make mine.Just a few extra tips:vary it by using wholewheat bread or sourdough and some extra slices of lettuce on the chicken. Even more filling.That breakfast can last you a whole day. Thanks for the post, Berry. Keep up the good work!

    1. Hey Sugar. Turkey's a good one, although not my favorite meat - Cakes loves it though. And yeah, any kind of bread you prefer would work.

      Thanks!
