When in a hurry to fix Breakfast / Lunch box or even Dinner, then this recipe will come to your rescue, leftover Chicken Curry Sandwich with caramelized Onions and Butter fried Potato chunks is an awesome combo!

Chicken Sandwich with leftover chicken curry is so perfect that now on it will be a regular at my place.
This is a lifesaver recipe as all I am doing here is putting together some easy ingredients to make some amazing breakfast recipe / Lunch Box idea and also quick dinner fix.

I used to always wonder when there was good amount of leftover chicken curry at home as to how to consume it and the only thought that as a Goan comes to my mind is making "Ros Omelette" ! Now that is another interesting street food served at every joint in Goa and relished with Pav / Une or Goan bread. Its adding leftover chicken curry without chicken,plain omelette with some chopped onion and to be gulped down with some hot local bakery made Bread.

This time I thought of this Chicken Sandwich, and trust me it was very amazing. I have shared recipe of my traditional  Chicken Curry Recipe,but if that is tedious to follow then I have also given another chicken recipe in "Notes*" below to ease out the curry recipe.
Here is what you have to do when you take the shortcut:
I have marinated chicken pieces(bone-in) with paste of salt,yogurt,turmeric ground,cilantro,mint,ginger,chili pepper and garlic.

1.If you need to make the curry in a hurry without following the traditional Chicken Curry Recipe then,you can marinate the chicken pieces with green paste made of Cilantro,Mint,Green Chili Pepper,Turmeric ground,Salt,yogurt,ginger and garlic. Saute some chopped Onion and Tomato in coconut oil,when mushy add the chicken marinated and add any brand of Curry Paste For Chicken Curry available in Indian Grocery Stores.
2. I personally recommend this Curry Paste For Chicken Curry,as it suits my and my family's chicken curry taste.
3.If you are using Chicken Breast then shred the chicken once curry is ready,if using Bone-in then separate the bone and discard it.
