If you have leftover sandwiches, which I doubt there will be any, then you can wrap and refrigerate them for later. But remember if you keep them in the fridge for more than 2 days they will become soggy from absorbing the filling.

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT BREADCRUMBS AT HOME ?

Breadcrumbs
Homemade bread crumbs are surprisingly easy to make and I feel that homemade bread crumbs have a better texture and flavor than any canister of breadcrumbs bought from a grocery store. You also have an option to have just the perfect size of breadcrumbs that you need.

You will need to start off by cutting the edges off the bread. You can use any type of bread but it is always better to use a bread which is denser and will produce more crumbs. Again whatever bread you have in handy should be good enough. Don’t go to the store to buy fresh bread to make the crumbs, in fact a couple of days old bread should be better because if the loaf is more dry it will yield much better textured breadcrumbs.
You know about those first couple of bread slices that everyone at home avoids because it’s too crusty. Well, they are perfect for making bread crumbs as they will yield more crumbs. Add these crusty bread slices along with the cut bread edges to a grinder and pulse until coarse crumbs are formed.

The next step is to prepare the chicken filling. You will need to boil tender chicken breast and shred the boiled chicken.

HOW TO SHRED BOILED CHICKEN BREAST ?

shredded chicken
Well, there are basically 2 different ways you can shred boiled boneless chicken. The most obvious, quickest and easiest way is to use a stand mixer. It’s just takes a few seconds to shred the boiled chicken. Just place the boiled chicken breast in the mixer and mount the paddle attachment to the mixer. Make sure to turn the mixer speed to LOW and start let the mixer run. Within 15-20 seconds you will have a fully shredded chicken.

The second way is to do this the old fashioned way. You will need 2 forks for this. You have to hold the chicken with one fork and with the other fork pull and tear the chicken flesh into shreds. This might take a little longer and a bit more effort but you will end to almost a similar result as using a stand mixer.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN FILLING ?

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN PARCELS

Take the bread slices without the crusty edges and spread this filling onto it. Spread the filling generously over the bread slice. Cover with another bread slice. Press on the sandwich a little to make sure filling sticks to the bread.

how to make SLURRY

how to make slurry

Now we need to prepare a corn flour slurry which will help the breadcrumbs adhere to the bread sandwich and actually stick to the bread instead of falling off while frying. To make the slurry whisk yoghurt until it becomes smooth and add corn flour to it while mixing. Keep mixing until it becomes a bit thick and then add water gradually while mixing. Mix until it forms a thin liquid paste without lumps. Keep this slurry in a shallow bowl for breading.

Now place the chicken bread sandwiches in the slurry bowl and turn them around in the slurry to coat both sides. Pick them up and gently place them in the second bowl and roll them over in the breadcrumbs to cover the entire bread with the crumbs. Make sure the bread sandwich is fully coated with the breadcrumbs.

Now place this sandwich in a preheated pan with cooking oil and fry until it turns into a beautiful golden brown colour. Here’s a quick tip, do not fry on high flame as it quickly burns the breadcrumbs and can also leave the chicken filling raw.
