1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

To prepare the chicken
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
2. Heat an ovenproof frying pan with a little oil, add the shallots and sauté for about 4 minutes until softened but not brown.
3. Add the Chilli, turmeric, rich dark sugar and paprika and sauté for 1 minute before adding the chicken fillets. Brown the chicken lightly on all sides.
4. Pour in the stock and bring the boil.
5. Place the garlic cloves into the pan and transfer to the oven.
6. Cook for about 18 to 20 minutes until fully cooked. Basting and turning from time to time.

8. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the pancetta, fry until crispy. Set aside.
9. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the oven, cool and shred.

To make the radish pickle

2. Add the shredded chicken to the garlic mayonnaise, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and some lemon juice to taste. Add the chopped coriander and the crispy pancetta.

To make up the sandwiches
1. Shape the bread using a small round cutter – you will need 36 rounds, place 24 pieces on a board.
2. Spread each slice of bread with chicken mayonnaise and slices of radishes and lettuce leaves. Place half of the sandwiches on top of the others and top with the other pieces of rye bread. Push a skewer through each sandwich and place on a platter ready for serving.
