How’s everybody’s weekends? I was at home for my sister’s baby shower. She’s due in about a month and I’m so super excited to have a brand new baby nephew.

The baby shower was really fun, we went for afternoon tea and then for drinks and my sister got lots of super cute presents.

But by far the most exciting thing that happened to me this weekend is that I went to see the Trolls movie and omg I loved it so much!! The trolls are so freaking cute and the story and the singing and everything was just amazing.

Also Justin Timberlake, who is my lifelong biggest crush, is in it and even as a troll I still ♥ him. If you need cheering up you should go and watch it because it is literally all about being happy and doing lots of singing and dancing and hugging.

Ok so now you’ve discovered the true extent of my immaturity we can get onto the deliciousness that is these cumin rubbed chicken sandwiches.

Once the chicken is in the oven you need to move onto all the amazing extras that go into making this dish.

We have a vibrant chimichurri slaw packed with fresh herbs and a tasty hit of chilli. That goes into the sandwiches with extra chimichurri to drizzle on top. Because you can never have enough of that freshness.

Now all of this is just great but I’ve gotta say, probably my most favourite part of this dish has to be the chipotle potato salad. When we first came up with this meal Will and I were both in the mood for a really indulgent potato salad with loads of mayo, the type that really doesn’t justify the use of the word ‘salad’.

This one, made with a simple chipotle mayo, is just insane. We used shop bought mayo as the base because I am just not one of those people to be making mayo from scratch on a weeknight. I’m sorry I just can’t be doing with that.

Will did make his own rolls for this cumin rubbed chicken sandwich since he is now a bum who stays at home all the time ‘freelancing’. Definitely not a requirement for this though, everything else is so good you won’t be noticing the bread anyways!

Ingredients

For the Potato Salad

  • 500 g Baby Potatoes halved
  • 2 Dried Chipotle Peppers/1-2 tbsp Chipotle Paste
  • 200 ml Mayonnaise
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Pepper

For the Chimichurri Slaw

  • 1 Small Red Onion chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 40 g Fresh Parsley
  • 20 g Fresh Coriander
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Oregano
  • Pinch of Chilli Flakes optional
  • 200 ml Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Red Cabbage sliced thinly using a mandolin

For the Chicken

  • 4 Skinless Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Coriander
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

To Serve

  • 4 Bread Rolls

Instructions

To Make the Chicken

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C. Mix together the spices and set aside. Pound the chicken thighs until they're an even thickness then drizzle both sides with olive oil. Cover with the spice mixture and place on a baking tray. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes, until cooked through, flipping halfway through cooking.

To Make the Potato Salad

  1. Boil the potatoes until cooked, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Blanch the chipotle chillies in boiling water for 10 minutes until softened. Remove the seeds and place in a small blender with the mayonnaise, lemon juice and a sprinkling of salt and pepper (or mix the paste with the other ingredients in a bowl). Blend until smooth then stir into the cooked potatoes.

To Make the Chimichurri Slaw

  1. Put the red onion, garlic, red wine vinegar, lemon, parsley, coriander, oregano, chilli flakes and olive oil in a blender and pulse until smooth. Stir 2-3 tablespoons of chimichurri into the sliced red cabbage and reserve the rest of the chimichurri for serving.

To Serve

  1. Place a piece of chicken on each bread roll followed by some slaw with the potato salad and extra chimichurri on the side.
