Sandwich Thursday

We do a lot of sandwiches in my house. Most of the time they aren't that complex, but every now and then we like to rock out at dinner by having a sandwich that takes longer than 2 seconds to throw together. A favorite of ours is a chicken sandwich.

We, and I say "we" 'cause Hubby likes to get in the kitchen right along with me, start with boneless and skinless chicken breasts that have been marinated for at least 30 min in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, onion, Paul Newman's light balsamic viniagrette and lemon juice. Once that's done, we break out the George Foreman grill (a hot frying pan drizzled with olive oil is fine, too), take the marinated chicken out and season them with my Mom's Sassy Salt (recipe to follow). Once the chicken is sizzlin' away, we toast the buns in the oven for a few minutes. Our buns of choice -insert inappropriate giggle here- are Pepperidge farm with the onion bits on top.

After your buns are toasted -I couldn't resist!- and the chicken is cooked through we usually assemble our sandwiches with some honey mustard that I've whipped up, tomatoes, lettuce and a fave cheese. We tend to like a bolder flavored cheese on this sandwich, like a sharp cheddar, to stand up to the strong flavors of the onion buns and chicken but, really, just about any cheese you like will do fine. We serve with baked chips and, if we're really starving, a cup of my baked potato soup. Oh, yum! I know that this isn't fancy (pronounced "fain-cy" down here), but I'm here to tell ya' that it's some good eatin'...perfect for a Saturday afternoon chow down or a rainy evening.

Well, Megan, I hope I've done your Sandwich Thursday justice, Shug. It was a lot of fun and I'm lookin' forward to see what everyone else's favorite sandwiches are, including yours which I'm positive will be drool-worthy! Have your blog call my blog and we'll do lunch! ;0)

good grief, I'm hungy. That just sounded plain old good. Sad I missed the mom's salt, though...inquiring minds...I seem to have one.

Dang, cuz. That sounds good.

And I wish your mom would have given the recipe for her Sassy Salt. That stuff is good. Speaking of which, we need a new batch...I'll have to see if my mom brought some up with her. Otherwise, I'll have to put an order in. :)

I'm gonna forward this to my daughter as well as saving for myself. Sounds really, really yummy!

Darn you Aunt J! I thought to myself "Yes, yes...we are finally getting that recipe." While rubbing my hands together and laughing in a evil little way.

And then....




It was deleted! Aaaaaaargh!
:-)

Luckily we still have a little in our cupboard. So the recipe will still work for us.

I'm sorry about the recipe deletion, folks, but I had to honor Mom's request.....I joked with her earlier this evening that she probably could start a mail order business with her Sassy Salt! She just laughed....
