Persons: 4

Temperature: 64

Cooking time: 1 hour

Prep time: 10 minutes


  • 800 grams of chicken
  • Half a head of iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 onion
  • 100 ml of water
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp brown caster sugar
  • 120 grams of ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika powder
  • Pepper
  • Salty
  • 4 ciabattas
  • 1 tbsp tikka masala
  • 1 lemon


  1. Get everything ready -

    Take a pan or sous vide container and fill it with warm water. Set the sous vide device to 64°C and let the water heat.

  2. Marinate the chicken -

    Rub the chicken with the tikka masala spice mixture and season with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in the Souvy sous vide bags together with a knob of butter. Set the timer for at least 1 hour.

  3. Make the barbecue sauce -

    Chop the onion and fry it in a saucepan with water, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Let this cook for about 20 minutes. Then add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and smoked paprika powder. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool until ready to use.

  4. Pull the chicken -

    As soon as the timer goes off, remove the chicken from the packaging. Gently pull the chicken apart with two forks so that it looks like 'pulled chicken'. Then mix everything with barbecue sauce, salt and pepper.

  5. Finish -

    Make sure the bread is baked before you can finish the sandwich. Cut the tomato into thin slices and the iceberg lettuce finely. Also cut the avocado into thin slices. It is nice to briefly burn the avocado with a crème brûlée burner to create a slightly roasted taste. Prepare the sandwich according to your own wishes.

Hi Frans, dankjewel voor de tip! We hebben het aangepast.



Erg lekker.

Suggestie: wil je de citroensap toevoegen aan de ingrediënten? Dat helpt bij het boodschappen doen.
