Another Kind of Roasted Chicken Sandwich (Avocado and Roasted Chicken Sandwich with Wasabi Mayonnaise)

When my husband and I were living in Japan we were invited to a wedding.  The bride was a friend and colleague of mine that I had met through the dance company we both instructed for.  She was Japanese and had met her husband at Yokota Air Force Base.  If I could describe her passion in one word it would be – ballet.  She was a ballerina from head-to-toe and had been performing on stages, parades, and shows her entire life.  She was a very positive and nice person and we got along immediately.

During the wedding reception guests were given “thank you” gifts.  One of the items was a bottle of wasabi mayonnaise.  This was a new combination for a condiment for me. I tried it when I got home and I loved it!  Later, when I had finished the bottle, I asked my friend where I could get more.  She said it was a special blend from her dad’s wasabi company and they made it especially for her wedding.  Wow!

Cut to years later and my husband and I are no longer living in Japan and we are in Clovis, New Mexico.  I was shopping in the Asian ingredient section of the commissary and saw a green bottle of wasabi mayonnaise.  It wasn’t my friend’s father’s company, but it was wasabi mayonnaise.

I like to use this condiment to dip sushi, french fries, and chips in. I’ll even add some on the side of my ramen or noodle dishes when I need a kick in the taste buds.  I really like it in this sandwich, though:  Avocado and Roasted Chicken.  All the flavors pair well together and the heat and flavor from the wasabi is not overwhelming.


Avocado and Roasted Chicken Sandwich with Wasabi Mayonnaise

Ingredient List
Bread (Your Choice)
 A handful of Mixed Greens
1 Tomato
Roasted Chicken
1 Avocado
Balsamic Vinaigrette
Wasabi Mayonnaise
Pink Himalayan Salt and Black Pepper
Scallions

To make this sandwich you will pick out your preferred bread. Roasted Chicken and Avocado Sandwich 2

  • I used a mixed grain and seed bread, but I would also love this on a toasted ciabatta (with or without herbs), pretzel bread/bun, sourdough, and rye.

Next will be setting up vegetables:

  • Wash and dry a handful or two of mixed greens and set it aside
  • Then thinly slice a tomato and set it aside
  • Chop 2-4 scallions (also called spring or green onion) and set aside

In a mixing bowl:

  • Pull apart roasted chicken until you get the consistency you prefer
    • I like my chicken to be somewhat chunky, but I have family/friends that prefer their chicken (and canned tuna) to be pulled until the strands are really thin making the pulled chicken light and fluffy.
  • Add a dollop (or spoonful) of wasabi mayonnaise (or a mix of mayonnaise with some wasabi added to it)
  • Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette
  • Add the chopped scallions
  • Add pink Himalayan salt and black pepper to taste
  • Mix ingredients together

Next will be building the sandwich:

  • Between two pieces of toasted bread add chicken, tomato, mixed greens, and avocado

There’s your new take on a chicken sandwich full of flavor, heat, and beautiful colors.  Enjoy!
