Using the Breville – Chicken and Pecan Jaffle

Lately we have been making Jaffles quite a lot. Once we take the maker out we use it, but once it gets put away in the cupboard, we forget about for a few months!

It makes a toasted sandwich a little bit special and allows you use some interesting ingredients. Most often we have bacon and egg or classic ham and cheese, but the other day I used left over grilled chicken, sweet potato mash, a few green bean beans and some cheese -left over chicken dinner jaffle, pretty yummy!

It seems jaffles are getting trendy, I saw a segment on the TV show (Everyday Gourmet, Channel 10 in Australia), that featured an owner of a jaffle food truck in Sydney (Jafe Jaffles), he made a sweet jaffle using pastry and then a poached chicken, almond and basil Jaffle,which has inspired the following:


Ingredients for 2 Jaffles

quarter of finely diced red onion

about 8 pecans coarsely chopped

1 breast of a roasted chicken (or poached)

1 – 2 tbsp  finely chopped parsley (or herb of your choice)

1 tbsp of good whole egg mayonnaise

4 slices of bread of your choice

butter or fat of your choice

  1. Turn on Breville.
  2. Combine onion, pecans, chicken parsley and mayonnaise in a bowl, season.
  3. Butter all slices of bread on one side.
  4. When Breville is ready, place bread buttered side down, evenly spread chicken mixture over bread and top with remaining slices.
  5. Close Breville and toast until done!

It was a yummy sandwich, better than cheese and ham. You could go without the butter, but it  creates a nice brown crust on the outside of the sandwich.
