Serves 4

2 chicken breasts

1 bay leaf

3 peppercorns

1/2 onion, chopped

1/2 cup celery, chopped

2 tablespoons chives, chopped

1/4 cup spring onions, sliced

1/2 cup whole egg mayonnaise

1 loaf of good quality bread, sliced

Salt and pepper, to taste

1) Place the chicken in a medium saucepan, pour in enough water to cover, then add the bay leaf, peppercorns and onion and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for five minutes, then remove from the heat, cover and set aside to cool. 2) Once the chicken has cooled, slice it into fine pieces. Place the chicken in a bowl with the celery, chives, spring onion and mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper and mix until well combined. 3) Spread half the slices of bread with the chicken filling, top with the remaining bread and serve.
