AMERICAN CHICKEN ROLL

Traditional New England restaurants serve lobster rolls (made with butter, not mayonnaise) with potato chips or french fries on the side.In this recipe I used baked chicken Instead of lobster meat.A traditional MAINE's(USA) famous lobster roll is a sandwich filled with lobster meat soaked in butter and served on a steamed hot dog bun or similar roll,so that the opening is on the top rather than on the side.There are variations of this sandwich made in other parts of New England,which may contain diced celery or scallion,and mayonnaise.The sandwich may also contain lettuce,lemon juice,salt and black pepper,believe me it taste more.....................




INGREDIENTS:-

FOR CHICKEN:

Chicken breast-500 gms(cut into small cubes)
Chili flakes-1 tsp
Olive oil-2 tsp
Crushed black pepper-1/4 tsp
Salt-1/4 tsp

FOR ROLL:

2-Place chicken on a greased cake tin or an aluminium foil pan and cook for 8-10 min per side or until juices run clear and chicken in so longer pink.
3-Remove from grill,allow to cool for 5-10 min.In a bowl,combine the grilled chicken,mayonnaise,lemon juice,celery,parsley,salt and pepper to taste.
4-Place this chicken mixture in refrigerator for 5 to 10 minutes.This allows the salad to absorb the flavorings.

butter-side down and toast until golden brown,about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.Flip and toast the second side until golden brown, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
