Condiments have a deeper meaning than most people realize. In fact, the condiments you eat can actually tell you a lot about your personality! For example, mayonnaise is more appealing to women as well as those who are introverted and less competitive. Barbecue is more popular among men and extroverted, creative and athletic individuals. Who would have thought!
To accommodate all taste profiles, here are five of the best condiments to pair with your chicken sandwich.
Chipotle mayonnaise offers the best of both worlds because it gives a bit of spice without being overbearing. You can spread chipotle mayo on the chicken sandwich or use it as a dipping sauce. Plus, it tastes great with both grilled chicken and crispy chicken! If you want to kick things up a notch, try a wasabi mayonnaise dipping sauce instead. The wasabi will really pack a punch!
The primary ingredients in pesto are basil and garlic, making it a versatile sauce that can be used in pastas, pizzas and flatbreads. It also goes great on chicken sandwiches, especially those served on ciabatta or sourdough bread. Another reason why we like a pesto spread is because it pairs well with a number of cheeses and fresh veggies like spinach and roasted red peppers.
Fresh guacamole or mashed avocados taste delicious on freshly grilled chicken. In fact, you can use this ingredient in place of mayonnaise to cut down on fat and calories. Avocados also taste great with tomatoes, cheese and bacon for a hearty sandwich that will satisfy your hunger cravings. Here’s a make-ahead recipe for Avocado Mayo. It’s healthy and delicious!
If you enjoy a touch of sweetness to your chicken sandwiches, teriyaki sauce will get the job done. You can buy your own teriyaki sauce, but it’s also easy enough to make on your own using basic ingredients like soy sauce, honey, apple cider vinegar and spices. Add a slice of pepperjack cheese, avocado and pineapple and you have a mouthwatering sandwich right from your kitchen.
Another great dipping sauce to pair with your chicken sandwich is honey mustard. This sweet spin on traditional mustard tastes delicious with both grilled or crispy chicken. You can also make your own honey mustard at home using dijon mustard, honey, garlic powder and oregano. Simple, healthy and cost-effective!
