Chicken and Cheese Jaffles with Spicy Capsicum Sauce – Hayden Quinn

 

2 cups chopped cooked chicken

1⁄4 cup whole egg mayonnaise

1 small carrot, grated

1 celery stick, finely sliced

1⁄2 small red onion, finely diced

8 slices white bread

60g soft butter

8 slices tasty cheese

 

 

Capsicum Sauce

150g drained chargrilled red capsicum

1 garlic clove, crushed

1⁄3 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon chilli powder

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoons lemon juice

 

 

1   To make the capsicum sauce, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a small bowl.

2   Heat a jaffle iron or sandwich toaster. Combine the chicken, mayo, carrot, celery and onion in a bowl, and season with salt and pepper.

3   Spread the bread with butter, then place half the bread slices, butter side down, on a board. Top each one with a slice of cheese, 1⁄4 of the chicken mixture, then another slice of cheese. Put the remaining bread slices on top, butter side up.

4   Lift a sandwich onto the jaffle maker and cook for a few minutes, until the bread is golden brown. Repeat with remaining sandwiches. Serve with the sauce for dipping.

 

Serves 4

 

***My Hint – if you don’t possess a jaffle maker ( and they are coming back into style) use a sandwich press **

These are perfect for lunch or to have  for a lazy super  – kids and adults will love them.

  1. This recipe book has some really interesting choices, Carol! This one sounds just spicy enough, and the kind of warm lunch that stays with you when it’s cold out. Yum
