Introduction: How a 4 Year Old Makes a Chicken Sandwich

Picture of How a 4 Year Old Makes a Chicken Sandwich

Step by step instructions how a 4 year old makes a chicken sandwich while visiting Grandma.

Step 1: Get Out Bread

It's ok if the top crust part get's torn off because the bag wasn't opened far enough. No one REALLY likes to eat that part anyway. (I stuffed it in my mouth and bit it, but my Grandma said I didn't have to eat it, we could feed it to the birds later)

Step 2: Mayo

Next put some mayonnaise on the bread. Not too much, you can always add more later. Besides it's not really good for you.

Step 3: Spread Mayo

Step 4: Lick the Butter Knife

Don't waste any mayo, lick the knife.
NOTICE -- twice now, it has been suggested that this instructable needed a warning about licking knives. (1) The title makes it clear that a 4 year old is making the sandwich, and one could assume Grandma wouldn't give the little chef a sharp knife to work with, much less allow him to lick it. However, to satisfy the Safety Police: WARNING - NEVER LICK A SHARP KNIFE, YOU COULD GET HURT, CUT, BLOODY, INJURED, MAIMED and/or otherwise spoil a good time

Step 5: Check Mayo Coverage

The mayonnaise has to go all the way to the edges. If you don't do that, you're going to get a really dry bite that doesn't taste so good and you'll have to drink half your milk to wash it down.

Step 6: Measure for Cutting

Step 8: Add the Chicken

You have to cover the whole bread, no bread showing!

Step 9: Add Salt

Have your Grandma put salt on. It's better if she does it because salt comes out fast and too much is icky and you can't take it off very good. (BTW - Chef Ethan took this picture all by himself)

Step 10: Open the Pepper

This isn't as easy as you think. (BTW - my pajamas say, "What happens at Grandma's house stays at Grandma's house" My Mom got them for me and my Grandma LOVES them!)

Step 11: Add Pepper

Not too much!

Step 13: You Need Some Veggies

You should always have some veggies or fruit every time you eat. My favorite veggie when I'm at Grandma's is frozen sweet corn. You can just pour it on your plate. You don't need a spoon or fork. I like how it crunches when it's still frozened.

Step 14: Eat and Enjoy!

Don't forget to feed the torn off top of the crust to the birds. And Grandma says don't forget to put away stuff and do the dishes, too.

Bravo Ethan! Looks delicious and nutritious with the corn and I assume milk after reading how you'd have to drink half of it down to swallow a dry bite if the mayonnaise wasn't all the way to the edges.
