The Ultimate Club Sandwich

How to make the ultimate club sandwich – A double decker toasted sandwich with crispy bacon, succulent chicken, lettuce, tomato and delicious homemade mayonnaise.
The exact method you choose to make this sandwich is up to you. The only important thing to remember is to time it so that the chicken, bacon and toast are hot and ready to eat at the same time.
Active Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
To make homemade mayonnaise: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 delicious double decker sandwich


  • 3 slices thick sliced white bread
  • 3 rashers unsmoked streaky bacon
  • 3 chicken breast mini fillets - or half a chicken breast cut into strips
  • 1 tomato - I use vine tomatoes as I find they are juicier and have more flavour
  • 2 lettuce leaves - I use round lettuce
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise - I prefer to make my own but you can also use ready made.


  • Make your mayonnaise (if you're not using ready-made)
  • Cook your chicken and bacon - I like to bake mine at 220ºC/200ºC for about 15 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is thoroughly cooked. The cooking time for the chicken will vary according to how thick the pieces are. If you're oven cooking, check it after 10 minutes and put if back in for longer until it is piping hot all the way through. You can also grill or fry the chicken and bacon if you prefer.
  • Toast your bread.
  • Slice the tomato.
  • Build your sandwich - Spread mayonnaise on a slice of toast, add two of your fillings (I go for the chicken and lettuce), add another slice of toast, spread with mayonnaise, add the remaining fillings, top with the final slice of toast.
  • Enjoy!
