Ingredients

  • 2 slices thick white bloomer bread

You’ll also need

  • Non-stick frying pan

Method

  1. Layer the leftover roast chicken on one slice of the bread, then top with the kimchi and cheeses. Sandwich together with the remaining slice of bread and spread the outsides with the butter.
  2. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the sandwich for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and the cheese has melted. Serve with extra kimchi on the side.

  1. Don’t waste it Add leftover kimchee to soups, stews, tacos or burgers for an extra kick.

  2. Kimchi (or kimchee), from Korea, is a fermented mix of cabbage or other veg, flavoured with chilli, garlic and spices. Find it in some large supermarkets, Asian stores and health food shops or make our cabbage and carrot kimchi recipe. Some kimchi is stronger and spicier than others. Taste it and adjust the quantity you use.
