Croque Madame Jeanette

 

This one is a fusion of the well known, French croque madame and the “Dutch” spicy chicken sandwich. Like the American version, it’s chicken and it’s spicy. Unlike the American version, it’s not fried. There’s many different recipes for the spicy chicken sandwich; some Indonesian, some Surinam (which is where our version’s idea came from). The Madame Jeanette pepper used in Limonhello originates from Surinam, hence the name Croque Madame Jeanette. This sandwich goes great with a fresh salad, like vinegar marinated cucumber. For the experienced chefs among us, just substitute your favorite croque madame recipe, leave out the mornay/béchamel and add the spicy chicken instead of ham.

 

Serves 4-6

  • 8 – 12 thick slices of bread
  • 4 - 6 eggs (more if you want to try to poaching for the first time)
  • 150 grams or 1 ¼ cup Gruyère (any cheese will do)
  • 400 grams or 14 oz chicken meat (breast or thigh)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp of your favorite curry blend (bonus points if you use a Surinam masala)
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Black pepper
  • Limonhello

 

Dice the onion and press the garlic. Slice the chicken into little strips and brown in a bit of oil. Remove from the pan and set aside. Sauté the onion and garlic in the same pan. Add tomato paste and crumble in the bouillon cube with a pinch of black pepper, the chicken strips and curry powder, along with 100 ml or ½ cup of water. Let simmer for 15-20 min, stirring regularly. 

In the meantime, butter up the bread and toast until crispy. Fry or poach the eggs, making sure the yolk stays runny. When the chicken is cooked, divide on half the slices of bread and cover with about ⅔ of your cheese, another slice of bread and top with leftover cheese. Broil the sandwiches in your oven until cheese is lightly golden brown. Top with your poached or fried egg and dip, douse or drizzle with Limonhello!

Chicken Spiedie

This is an incredibly delicious sandwich. Marinated for at least 24 hours, the chicken "cooks", almost like fish in a ceviche. This guarantees the most succulent meat after you cook it, preferably over a charcoal fire on a skewer; which is where the name comes from, spiedo is Italian for spit.

You can use any kind of meat and any kind of cooking method. Here we used chicken breast and a simple pan. Don't worry if you don't have any Limonhello on hand (though you should definitely order some for your next sandwich), since this recipe is great even without the citrusy kick of Limonhello.

Fair warning, our version leaves you with a whole lot of "zuzu". Just double the chicken or halve the marinade. Though it's delicious and you're gonna wish you had more every time, at least we do.

 

For 6 sandwiches

  • 600 grams or 1.3 pounds of chicken breast (or any boneless meat) cut into bitesize pieces
  • 180 ml or 3/4 cup of white wine vinegar
  • 120 ml or half a cup of olive oil
  • 60 ml or a quarter cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 15 grams or half a cup of fresh mint leaves
  • 6 cloves of garlic (or more if you're a garlic fiend)
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 3-4 teaspoons Limonhello
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 soft buns

 

Combine vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, mint, garlic, sugar, Limonhello, oregano, basil, salt, red pepper flakes, and black pepper in a blender. Puree until liquefied. Place your meat in a large resealable plastic bag, pour in marinade and massage to coat. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours, massaging occasionally.

 

The next day, remove the meat and cook it in a pan with a couple of tablespoons of the marinade (or on skewers on your barbecue). Pour the left over marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a simmer and let it reduce for about 4 minutes. Toast your buns and spread some of the cooked down marinade on each. Add the meat, douse with more marinade and a couple drops of Limonhello.
