Open-face Sandwich with Chicken with Curry Mayonnaise and Bacon
Poultry is always popular on an open-face sandwich. It is reasonably priced, widely available and sold in all kinds of cuts. Eating more chicken, which contains less fat than red meat, is a good solution to the fatty meat-dilemmas . Chicken has many of the same nutritional benefits as meat, In fact, chicken and turkey breast has more niacin/vitamin B3 than lean meat which improves cholesterol levels and lowers cardiovascular risks. Chicken breast is tremendously versatile and relatively easy to cook. The cheaper cuts such as thighs and drumstick which are present in whole cooked chicken have a more intense flavor than breast meat. Leftover duck is also good as an open-face sandwich. Turkey can be used instead of chicken. Left-over chicken or a purchased roast chicken can be used.
