curried chicken salad sandwich

Despite what the picture looks like, I promise you this is delicious!

1 rotisserie chicken
1 carrot, shredded
1 celery stick, finely diced
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1 cup lowfat mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. hot curry powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
sourdough bread, sliced
1/4 lb. extra sharp cheddar cheese, Boar's Head recommended
tomato, sliced


1. De-bone and remove all the fat from the chicken. Dice chicken into 1-inch cubes. Place chicken in a large bowl. Add the shredded carrot, diced celery and onion.
2. In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, cayenne and black pepper. Slowly incorporate mayo. mixture into chicken using a fork to shred the meat- you will likely not want it all.
3. Build the sandwich: bread, cheese, slice of tomato, then chicken salad. Grill in panini press to melt the cheese.
