Topless chicken and Parma ham sandwich
To reduce the calorie count but not the satisfaction factor of your sandwiches, try going topless! We've been using dense rye pumpernickel-style bread, which takes a bit of getting used to but makes brilliant open-topped sandwiches. It contains no wheat and is very satisfying - and slightly lower in calories than thick-sliced wholegrain bread.
- Slice of rye bread
- 1/2 teaspoon of softened butter
- 2 slices of Tomato
- A slice of skinless roast chicken breast
- 2 slices of Parma Ham
For the condiment
- 1 teaspoon light mayonnaise
- ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon cold water
Spread a slice of rye bread with ½ teaspoon of softened butter. Top with a sliced tomato, then slice half a skinless roast chicken breast and arrange it over the tomato. Top with 2 slices of Parma ham. Toss some shredded lettuce and sliced cucumber and place alongside the bread.
Mix 1 teaspoon of light mayonnaise with ½ teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and ½ teaspoon cold water until smooth and spoon over the salad. Season with black pepper.
