Make sure to have lots of fresh greens, such as baby spinach, arugula, or lettuce, readily washed and hand-torn in the fridge to complete this yummy sandwich!


  • 1 medium chicken breast fillet - صدور فيليه الدجاج
  • 1 medium carrot - جزرة
  • 1 small green onion (or half a small white onion) - بصل أخضر
  • 1 piece cardamom - حبهان
  • 4 tablespoon yoghurt - زبادي
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard - مسطردة ديجون
  • 1 stick celery - كرفس افرنجي
  • 1 pinch garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 2 teaspoon dried cranberries - التوت البري المجفف
  • 1 handful baby spinach - سبانخ صغيرة
  • 1 handful lettuce - خس
  • 4 slice rye bread
  • sea salt - ملح البحر
  • black pepper (to taste) - فلفل أسود

Step by step

  1. Place chicken fillet in a small pot with the green onions, cardamom, half the carrot, salt and pepper. Cover with water and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from water, allow to cool then cut into cubes.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix yoghurt with Dijon mustard, finely chopped celery and garlic powder. Grate the remaining carrot and add to the mixture. Add cooled chicken cubes and dried cranberries and mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You may store it in a sealed box in the fridge to use as sandwich filler later on.
  3. To prepare the sandwiches, arrange baby spinach and/or lettuce on 2 slices of rye bread. Divide the chicken salad filling between the two slices, then top them with the remaining 2 rye bread slices. Press gently and wrap them tightly for the lunchbox.
