Today's recipe is sandwich with a curried chicken filling.During our school days there used to be a Chicken sandwich in our school canteen which had its filling in the form of curry.Waking up late to school means two riyals to school one riyal for sandwich or anything to eat and the other to buy anything for drinking.Mostly I would go for that cold Pepsi and any sandwich.
As the kids have vacation now,they get up a little late.In the meantime I prepare something for their breakfast which they like.Mostly all our neighbours have left for vacation and we are also planning to go this week.So its like finishing off things from pantry and refrigerator.Morning when checked found a packet of chicken boneless pieces so thought to make a sandwich filling.Suddenly thought to make this in a curried style but was not sure whether the kids would like.But to my surprise they finished it without any fuss.
Actually I forgot to click before giving the kids,So with the very little filling left I have made these and clicked :)
