Chicken Caesar Sandwiches -
I have another picture of just the ingredients but I thought my super cute helper deserved to be in a blog.
I shouldn't be teasing when he's playing with sharp objects. Dentists pretty much need fingers in order to work.
That being said he's an awesome chef and there are certain things he does better than anyone else. He's an awesome sandwich maker and salad maker. His sandwich making skills he says he got from his grandfather. And no offense to Grandpa Kirby but I love it when this guy cooks for me.
This was an idea we dreamed up for dinner late in the day so we decided to take a short cut and use a bagged caesar salad kit from the store rather than make our own.
You'll need: bread- My husband prefers the ciabatta rolls.
Italian cheese (I'm using an already opened bag of shreds)
Chicken breasts to grill (I seasoned mine with s&P, and an Italian seasoning blend)
Caesar salad kit.
That's it! Just grill your chicken and slice it. Assemble your sandwiches and add your lettuce and tomato. Don't get me wrong. I know you guys are smart enough to figure that out! But since this is a cooking blog I felt obliged to offer up instructions. ;p
Oh! And the nurse in me says please use your instant read thermometer to ensure that your chicken is thoroughly cooked. Don't want any sickies out there.
My inspiration for these sandwiches came from my favorite restaurant in our little town. American Grill. I seriously think they should be featured on Triple D. (Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives). I'm hoping that my friend Mark won't get mad at me for posting a blog about the same type of sandwich that they serve. I guess I could have asked him. ha! But, as usual I don't think my version of the sandwich are any threat to him or his restaurant. I'd way rather go eat one of theirs. He uses different bread and his salad dressing is homemade. And it's made on their grill which to me makes the sandwich all together different. PLUS I just love having other people cook for me. (Think I've done enough butt kissing here?)
Anyway, next time you need a quick dinner or you want to serve a great sandwich for a tailgating party, or just want something a little different try this!!!
Life on the lake is laid back. When we cook it's far from being fancy affair. It's all about relaxing with friends and family and enjoying comfort food. More often than not it's not all that healthy but boy it sure is good!!!
