When I was a kid, I thought of pumpernickel as a grown-ups’ bread, and as I’ve gotten older, I have to admit, I just love it. It reminds me of my dad, who will often opt for it enthusiastically. This is one of my favorite combinations. The moisture in the cheese and in the chutney is plenty, no mayo needed. Brie is also nice. —SallyCan
Chicken breast, roast or rotisserie, sliced
Fresh goat cheese (chevre) or brie
Apricot or any other chutney you’re fond of
Greens: spinach, chard, lettuce, or whatever you like
Spread the cheese on one slice of bread and the chutney on the other, with chicken breast and greens in between (if you prefer, pack them separately, wrapped in a paper towel or paper napkin, and add to sandwich later). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Wrap tightly in foil, waxed paper, or plastic wrap so that the flavors can meld.
