Star Trek Captain Kirk’s Chicken Sandwich
THE TRIBBLE’S BANQUET (Captain Kirk’s Chicken Sandwich)

However, if you want to recreate the Tribble’s Banquet, the following directions should give you no tribble at all.

is thoroughly tender. For more than 6 pieces, use a larger pot and
proportionately more water and seasoned salt.
Next make the coleslaw. Shred the cabbage and carrots, using the side of the
grater with round holes. Clean and trim the green onions and slice them
thinly. Mix the vegetables together in the bowl, then add the mayonnaise and
lemon juice, if desired. Mix together thoroughly. Season to taste with
To make the sandwiches: Put a slice pf Swiss cheese and a slice of corned
beef on a slice of bread.

of coleslaw and top with a second slice of bread. Cut the sandwich in half
and serve (with a pickle, if you wish).
