Ingredients for Chipotle Chorizo and Halloumi Baguette on the counter.


  • Choose a baguette that boasts a crisp exterior and a tender, airy heart, ensuring a delightful contrast with every bite.
  • For the chicken component, breast fillets emerge as the prime choice due to their lean nature and seamless integration into the dish, promising a tender bite.
  • The lettuce should exude freshness, with varieties such as romaine or iceberg offering the much-coveted crunch that elevates the sensory experience for me I enjoy a handful of spinach.
  • Tomatoes, in their ripe and succulent form, contribute a sweet and subtly tangy essence, enriching the overall palate.
  • The choice of mayonnaise is critical, serving as the creamy foundation that binds the ingredients, while an adventurous addition of mustard or pesto can introduce an unexpected yet harmonious depth of flavour.

  1. To attain the quintessential crunch that sets your baguette apart, meticulous attention must be given to the baking process. Begin by warming your oven to 200°C, a crucial step that prepares it for achieving optimal bread crispness. Next, lightly brush your baguette with a coating of olive oil. This not only imparts a subtle flavour but also aids in attaining that golden, crispy exterior that is highly sought after in a quality baguette. Proceed to place the bread in the oven, allowing it to toast for approximately 5 minutes. It is imperative to keep a vigilant eye on it during this time; the line between achieving the desired crunch and encroaching upon an unwelcome hardness is remarkably thin. This toasting ritual not only serves to warm the bread but plays a pivotal role in enhancing its texture and elevating the overall flavour profile of your sandwich. By adhering to this method, the baguette is transformed into the ideal foundation for your culinary creation, promising a satisfying contrast with the tender fillings it is destined to encase.
  1. Begin the assembly of your gastronomic delight by attentively slicing your prepared baguette along its length, taking care not to sever it entirely, thus creating a welcoming cradle for the vibrant fillings. First, introduce a lavish spread of mayonnaise, in this case I used my Chipotle Mayo. Painting every corner of the baguette's interior with this creamy foundation. This layer not only imparts moisture but also serves as a flavour enhancer that complements the subsequent ingredients.
  1. Upon this base, arrange a layer of crisp lettuce leaves, chosen for their fresh crunch and ability to add a refreshing counterbalance to the savoury elements to come.
  2. Following this, carefully place the fragrant, cooked, chorizo atop the leaves, ensuring an even distribution for a consistent flavour experience in every bite. The chorizo, with its subtle spicy undertones, becomes the star, enveloped by the verdant lettuce.
  3. Then, introduce the slices of golden crispy halloumi, mingling with the other components, adding a burst of golden colour and a delicious contrast that is irresistible.
  4. Finally add a drizzle of the smoky oil that has rendered out of the chorizo over the leaves and halloumi.

If you’ve opted for additional condiments, now is the moment to drizzle or layer them, allowing each flavour to assert itself without overwhelming the others. A final seasoning with a sprinkle of crunchy Cornish Sea Salt (This is the only salt you'll find in my kitchen) and cracked black pepper to taste enhances the natural flavours of your assembly.

With each element in place, your baguette is now a symphony of textures and tastes, ready to captivate the senses. The meticulous layering is not merely for aesthetics but ensures a balanced and delightful culinary journey with every mouthful.

Avocado, with its buttery texture and rich flavour profile, serves as an excellent addition, introducing a layer of smooth complexity. For those with a penchant for a smoky dimension, incorporating crispy bacon can create a delightful contrast, marrying the freshness of the leaves with a decadent saltiness. The adventurous palate might seek the thrill of spice, where slices of jalapeño or a judicious drizzle of sriracha can infuse the sandwich with a fiery zest, elevating the ensemble of flavours to a bold crescendo.
