Servings: 4



Leftover pork, turkey or ham can be used, as can purchased sliced chicken, turkey or ham deli meat.

If using leftovers, start with step 2 of the recipe.

How to make it

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a small skillet on medium high heat, heat oil until shimmers. Cook chicken about 11 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through; reserve, cool and thinly slice.
  2. Place a slice of bread on each of eight 12-inch squares of plastic wrap. Flatten bread with a rolling pin.
  3. On one slice of bread spread 1/2 teaspoon almond butter horizontally across the middle. Repeat with the remaining almond butter and bread. Evenly cover each slice of bread with lettuce. Divide the chicken over the bread, leaving about 1/2-inch on opposite sides of the slice not covered with chicken - this makes rolling easier.
  4. Using the plastic wrap to help start, roll each slice into cylinder. Wrap tightly and refrigerate at least one hour.
  5. Mix the plum sauce, soy sauce, and orange peel. Slice sandwiches as desired and serve with plum dip.
