Jerk chicken sub


Share recipe

If you know which side your bread is buttered, you will make yourself this subway roll. A chicken salad sandwich is a stalwart classic for good reason, but sometimes you want lunch to be a little livelier.

A good jerk barbecue sauce can transform a dollop of mayonnaise into an exciting flavour bomb with one easy squirt. Aromatic and gently spiced, it’s easy to inject even a dreary desk lunch with a touch of Jamaican sunshine. I like to include sliced avocado for its cooling creaminess and a handful of salad leaves for extra crunch.

Sandwiches no longer need to be the desperate reserve of grey lunchtimes in motorway services, or the quick fix for the short of time and inspiration. It takes no effort to turn a simple sandwich into a meal fit for a king. So, come on, spice up your sanger with my jerk mayo chicken salad sub: the best thing since sliced bread.
