I’m loving these prepared sandwich fillings, especially the latest one I’ve just finished; roast chicken & bacon.
This filling is super simple to make, tastes amazing, and stupidly cheap, so let’s jump right in shall we!
- 1 large chicken
- 3 pack cheap bacon
- 9 heaped tbsp light mayo
- Salt & pepper to taste
MethodFirst things first, you need to pop the chicken in the oven and get that cooking, you should remove all the skin before cooking to avoid adding fat meat, and the temptation of eating it. I personally leave it on and discard it at the end; I think it keeps the chicken nice and moist, and I can’t be arsed removing it raw!
Cook the chicken until the juices run clear (no blood). If you’re unsure how to cook a chicken,
While the chicken’s cooking you can remove all the fat from the bacon, and then roughly cut into smaller pieces, nothing fancy just easier to cook.
Fry the bacon in a pan with a few squirts of fry light, draining any fat that may come out the bacon as it cooks. Cook all the bacon and then put aside in a bowl ready for later.
When the chicken’s cooked, place on a plate or cooling rack and allow to cool (enough to handle).
Remove as much chicken from the bones as possible, discarding any fatty bits, AND the skin. Don’t eat it…I know it’s tempting.
Now you’ve got the chicken, you now need to shred it into smaller pieces. As you can see from mine below I’ve got small bits and large chunks, it’s no big deal how you do it just remember the smaller the bits the further the mixture will go.
If you want to shred your bacon bits any more, now’s the time, if not mix the chicken and bacon bits together in a large bowl.
Add 9 heaped tablespoons of light mayonnaise, and mix thoroughly.
Season with salt a pepper, be careful with the amount of salt you put in as bacon is usually quite salty to start with.
