The best leftover chicken sandwich is the best because of it's amazingly delicious herb mayo, the creamy avocado, the peppery arugula, and ripe tomato. Don't take my word for it. Make it and see!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 sandwiches


  • Leftover chicken to taste
  • Arugula to taste
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 1/2 avocado sliced
  • 4 slices bread

Herb Mayo:

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 4 large leaves fresh basil chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon shallot chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • Prepare the mayo by chopping the herbs and shallot and combining all the herb mayo ingredients together thoroughly (I just used a spoon). You can eat it right away or chill for an hour so the flavors blend more.
  • Toast bread if desired. Assemble the sandwich with the herb mayo, chicken, tomato, avocado, and arugula. Cut in half diagonally and enjoy!
