Homemade Chicken Sandwich Spread Recipe


Chicken Sandwich Spread is a delicious Filipino style chicken sandwich recipe which is mixed with mayonnaise, shredded chicken breast, onion, condensed milk and lettuce. It is perfect to eat with french fries or any chips you like.

My mother made this easy Filipino style chicken sandwich which has a sweet taste. In the beginning, I was hesitant because the chicken sandwich is not supposed to taste sweet. But the moment I taste the sandwich, I find it very delicious.

The sweetness of the sandwich blends perfectly with eating side dishes such as french fries or any salty chips. In addition to that, I love eating my sandwiches with pickles. The sweetness from this sandwich and sourness of the pickle fits well.

This homemade chicken sandwich spread is a Filipino version, which is a traditional sandwich here in the Philippines. As you know, Filipino foods are influenced by Spanish, Chinese, and American. Also, in my experience, the locals love making their food sweet or salty, which makes sense why this sandwich has a sweet taste.

The Chicken Spread Sandwich Recipe is based on my mother’s recipe which is very simple since you only need fewer ingredients for this dish. Thankfully, my mother taught me this recipe, which I will be showing you how to make chicken spread Filipino style.

Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients of Chicken Sandwich Spread Recipe

The ingredients of Chicken Sandwich Spread Recipe is very easy and readily available in any grocery stores.

Firstly, I am using a boneless chicken breast. I prefer this chicken since it is easy to shred them into pieces. Secondly, I am using onion as my herb. When boiling my chicken, I put the onion together to have a nice flavor.

Thirdly, I am using mayonnaise and condensed milk. The reason why I like to use condensed milk is that it will help give a sweet taste of the chicken but not too sweet. As I said before, In the Philippines, most of their foods are sweet and salty, so it is not surprising when they are using condensed milk in their dishes. If you don’t like to use condensed milk, you can replace it with more mayonnaise and sugar.

Lastly, you will need salt and black pepper to seasoned your chicken spread.

Note: In addition to that ingredients above, you can also add herbs and spring onion like celery to enhance the flavor of the chicken spread, but I did not include them in my recipe.

How long does sandwich spread last in fridge?

The chicken spread sandwich is good for 6 to 7 sandwiches. However, it is not expected that you will consume all of it in one day, unless you are making a party. The remaining sandwich spread can be kept in a jar where you can store in the refrigerator for later use.

When you keep it in the fridge, the chicken spread will not get spoiled, and it can last up to 2 weeks. That way, if you want to make your delicious sandwich on other days, this will be very convenient and easy to prepare.

What to serve with this chicken spread?

When eating your favorite sandwich spread, it always goes well with french fries or potato chips. Since this sandwich is a bit sweet, you need to balance with salty side dishes. I love eating any sandwiches with fries/chips, and this will not be complete if you eat it alone.

Also, it is nice to serve with slices of cucumber and tomatoes, or even pickles which I made my own refrigerated dill pickles recipe.

Do you need any kitchen appliances or tools when making this?

When making Sandwich Spread, I only using grill toaster when toasting my sandwich. This will give a nice crispy texture of the sandwich.

Also, you need a cooking pot where you will be boiling the chicken and put the onion there.

How to make chicken sandwich spread?

The step to make your homemade chicken spread sandwich is extremely easy. First, add a water in the pot. Chopped the onion into bigger square pieces and put the chicken breast into the pot, and wait till its boiling. Once the chicken breast is cook, turn off the heat, and remove the chicken from the boiling water. Wait till it cool down.
