Chicken is one of my favorite meats. There are just so many ways you can prepare it. This is a common sandwich here in Zim. I’ve just put a bit of a twist and added gherkins. I love the way they add a crunch texture to the sandwich and of course the flavour. Brief detour- Gherkins are pickled cucumbers. You will find them in most of the big chain supermarkets. They should be at the salad dressings, mayonnaise and such condiments section. Now back to the sandwich, let’s get to the preparation part.
