Curry Chicken Lunch Rolls

Easy fragrant and creamy curry chicken bread rolls for lunch! Mixed with crunchy bits of cornichons and topped with heaps of fried onions.


On my days off from work, my bf is usually away from 9-5. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to enjoy some me-time and spoil myself a bit. Lunch-wise anyway, because I love having homemade lunch. Spending some extra time on a special sandwich for lunch is a real treat. So whenever I have the time, I dream about a new lunch-idea and execute it on my day off. Life doesn’t get more perfect 😉 Today, I’ll be sharing one of my latest homemade lunch.

A while ago, I had a curry sandwich at a restaurant. It was a good sandwich, but I felt like it was missing a few things. So I let myself be inspired and went into my kitchen to do some experiments on my own version. And boy, did I enjoy this one! Fragrant, creamy, tangy, crunchy curry chicken lunch rolls… Yum~~~ All those things in one sandwich! [Leftovers were happily gobbled up by my bf hehe… ;)] Also, did I mention it’s super easy and very quick to make? You can even prepare everything in advance and assemble when your guest(s) arrive. 


To make the sandwich, I cut a piece of chicken breast into small cubes and added some soy sauce and curry powder. I cut cubes of approximately 0,5 cm x 0,5 cm. Yes, that small. Feel free to go for bigger cubes, but keep in mind it will take a bit more time to cook. These cubes took only a couple of minutes. As for the curry powder, I used store-bought “Curry Masala”, which is slightly spicy. If you’re not into spicy or if you’re into MORE spice, use your favorite curry spice blend. I used the same spice blend for the sauce, which is just a mixture of yoghurt-mayonaise, curry powder and pepper. Once you’ve got your chicken and sauce ready, all you need is:

  • boiled egg
  • cucumber
  • fried onions
  • cilantro

Assemble the lot and you’ve got yourself a delicious homemade sandwich
