Five-spice powder – a fragrant mix of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise and Sichuan peppercorns – is used a great deal in Chinese cooking, and here it adds an oriental flavour to appetising, pitta pocket sandwiches.
Grilled chicken breasts also make a filling, more conventional sandwich. Lightly toast 2 slices of multigrain bread for each sandwich. Cover 1 slice of toast with mixed leaves and sliced cucumber tossed with the lemon and herb dressing. Add the chicken slices, then top with second slice of toast.
Subtly tasty. I enjoyed this and would make it again. - 17 Aug 2015
