Delicious Chicken Sandwich


One night I was supposed to make a chicken dish that included sun-dried tomatoes. I previously had tried sun-dried tomatoes and was just not a fan. Which doesn't make sense, because I like tomatoes in all forms. But, this evening, I opened the jar, took a whiff and just couldn't do it. So, what was I going to make?

I stared into the fridge for a while, then into the pantry waiting for the perfect dish to pop out at me. Nothing happened. But a jar of roasted red peppers caught my eye and I decided to just wing it.

    • 4 chicken cutlets
    • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
    • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 8 oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
    • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1/2 cup lettuce leaves
    • 4 sub rolls 
1. Preheat a skillet or grill plate to hot. Also preheat the oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with foil.
2. Season the chicken with the Italian seasoning.
3. Place the chicken in the skillet or on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the chicken has cooked through.
4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and garlic powder until combined. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on both sides of each sub roll.
5. Once chicken is cooked through, slice into strips. Place the chicken on the sub roll, top with the roasted red peppers and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top.
6. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the sub rolls are lightly toasted. Add lettuce and serve.

Obviously, based off the name you'd assume these turned out pretty well. I really like my version and I doctored it up a bit for Tom, leaving off the lettuce and wrapping his chicken slices with the last couple of pieces of lunchmeat ham we had in the fridge. But back to the name, I had no idea what to call it, so I described it to my internet friends who said "Delicious Chicken Sandwich"...sometimes the obvious is just for the best.
