Grilled Chicken Mayonnaise Sandwich Meltdown - The Ultimate Grilled Chicken Mayonnaise Sandwich
Recipe type: Sandwiches / Grills
Serves: 2
I don't think I have ever met anyone who doesn't enjoy a good toasted chicken mayonnaise sandwich. Here is recipe for this old favorite that gives a whole new definition to this classic. I call it the grilled chicken mayo meltdown. It just looks better and it really tastes better.
  • 2 Roasted chicken quarters
  • 1 Onion
  • 120g Tangy mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste (or the seasoning of your choice)
  • 8 Slices square loaf bread
  • Butter
  • 8 Slices mature cheddar / Jack
  • 4 Cocktail tomatoes
  1. Strip and shred the meat from 2 roasted chicken quarters, including the skin.
  2. Add a diced onion and the tangy mayonnaise. Mix this all until everything is well coated.
  3. Season liberally with salt and cracked black pepper, or the seasoning of your choice. Mix this in thoroughly.
  4. Lightly butter 8 slices of bread and arrange the slices in pairs with buttered surfaces face to face.
  5. Divide the chicken mixture evenly among the 4 sandwiches.
  6. Heat a large pan over medium heat. You can test the readiness of the pan by flicking a little cold water onto the surface. If it bubbles instantly, the pan is ready.
  7. Lift the top slices of bread and place them in the pan. Top these with the bottom slices. Now the buttered faces are on the outside of the sandwiches.
  8. Grill the sandwiches turning them every couple of minutes until they are golden and crispy. Make sure to square up the slices after every turn.
  9. Once you are happy with their color, remove the sandwiches from the pan and continue with the following 2.
  10. Place the sandwiches on a chopping board. Use a sharp thin blade to cut through the sandwiches along the diagonals.
  11. Flip the sandwich triangle onto their crusts and arrange them in a line.
  12. Drive a 25cm or 10 inch skewer through the sandwich triangles to hold them together. Repeat this with the other 2 sandwiches.
  13. Transfer the sandwiches to a foil lined baking sheet.
  14. Place the cheese slices along the apex of the sandwiches. Press them down gently to make contact with the hot filling. This secures them in place.
  15. Grill the sandwiches under a preheated grill in your oven until the cheese has melted completely, but not browned.
  16. Remove the sheet from the oven and transfer the meltdowns to serving platters.
  17. Press cocktail tomatoes onto each end of the skewers and serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
