Preparation time : 20 min Cooking time : 30 min Servings : 4
Ingredients
  • To make 4 sandwiches:
  • 2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
  • Marinade:
  • 2 cloves garlic, bashed
  • 2 cm fresh ginger, chopped into large pieces
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs lime juice
  • a pinch of chili flakes (optional)
  • Other ingredients:
  • 8 slices fresh bread of your choice (ciabatta or sourdough are good options)
  • 150 ml labneh
  • 30 ml harissa paste
  • 2 apples
  • 1 medium cucumber
Method

Slice the chicken breasts in to strips and place in a bowl

Mix all the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken

Mix the chicken with the marinade, cover and let it stand for at least an hour in the fridge and remove from the fridge 15 minutes before cooking

Mix the labneh and harissa and set aside

Thinly slice the apples and sprinkle with lemon juice to avoid discolouration

Thinly slice the cucumber

Spread each slice of bread with the labneh mixture

Place the apple slices on 4 slices and the cucumber slices on the other 4 slices and gently press down on to the labneh

Heat a bit of oil in a large pan over a medium high heat, remove the chicken from the marinade and fry the chicken slices for a few minutes on each side until cooked through

Place the chicken on 4 slices of bread and close
