Heat the oil and butter in a pan and fry the fillets until golden brown and cooked. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool, then cut into strips.

Fry the bacon in the same pan until crisp, then drain on paper towels.

Spread mayonnaise on four slices of bread and divide the chicken strips between them. Then place 2 strips of bacon on top of each slice, followed by the egg, sliced tomato, gherkins and rocket.

Spread a layer of mustard on the remaining 4 slices of bread and close the sandwiches. Halve them diagonally and serve with chips.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
