  3. Line a deep dish with plastic wrap, or place a molding cylinder on a plate.
  4. Add the mashed potatoes to form a bed about 1 cm tall at the bottom.
  5. Add a second layer of 1 cm of the chicken mixture evenly over the potato.
  6. Top the chicken mixture with a final layer of potato, forming a sandwich of chicken inside two layers of potato.
  7. Demold or remove the cylinder.
  8. Garnish with lettuce and mayonnaise.

Variations:

Mashed potatoes can be prepared with a mix of olive oil and butter and adding one tablespoon of lemon juice. You can compensate lemon with salt. (Don't add milk)

You can as well replace chicken with a can of tuna mixed with mayonnaise and fine chopped onion. Serve this variation fresh only.
