Junglee Chicken Sandwich

Junglee Chicken Sandwich 

My mom is a big hoarder of cookbooks, magazines etc. and I did borrow some of her collections as usual… hehe and that’s when I came across this cookbook of Sanjeev Kapoor. That name immediately caught my attention. Junglee means crazy or wild in hindi language.

I was very curious about this Junglee sandwich that I immediately searched in the web, and found that @headbangerskitchen had shared a recipe too. Some toasted the bread in butter, while others had it plain. Some mentioned an airlines that served this sandwich m. So I was curious, thought the ingredients looked very basic, and I didn’t know why everyone said they love it. As it very much resembled this chicken sandwich that I make often. Nevertheless, I took inspiration from here and there and I made it l..and oh boy!! It was super Yumm!! Though I am not a fan of coriander leaves in sandwiches, this one was definitely a flavor bomb! 😋

This sandwich, just like the name, can be made very versatile. You can use your choice of veggies and play around with it. I added the veggies that I had in my hand. This makes a great tiffin idea as it has protein and veggies too. Adding Worcestershire sauce definitely added a good flavor to the filling, definitely do use it if you have it in your pantry! 

Without further ado, let’s get started! 


  • 150 gms boneless chicken
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt, as required 
  • 1/2 tsp White Pepper Powder
  • Cabbage, sliced thinly 
  • Carrot, grated
  • Coriander leaves, handful, chopped finely
  • 1- 2 tbsp Mayonnaise 
  • 2 tbsp Cream (thick/fresh)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, optional 
  • Mozzarella Cheese, use generously
  • Butter, to spread on bread slices


  1. Cover and cook the cleaned chicken in water, salt and white pepper powder. 
  2. After around 5-7 minutes, check the doneness of the chicken and transfer to a bowl and using two forks, pull the chicken.

  3. Slice up some cabbage, add some grated carrot, and other veggies of your choice, and the hero ingredient, chopped coriander leaves!

  4. Add in Mayo, thick cream, Worcestershire sauce, mozzarella cheese, and combine everything well. 

  5. Spread butter on one side of each bread slice and place the filling on the side without the butter.
  6. Toast the sandwich and slice and serve! You are ready to enjoy it with a good cuppa coffee or tea! And makes a great lunchbox idea too! 😋 

Ps: Adding Worcestershire would definitely pump up the flavor..do use it if you have it your pantry.
Add finely chopped green chilies, but I didn’t add it as my daughter is not fond of spicy food .

I warmed the bread in one side, to help spread the butter more easily.
