Grilled Chicken, real simple meals
Thank you for checking out my food blog. I had some drastic changes in my life lately. And with my supportive, beautiful wife I know we will get through the changes. Cause what is life anyway? a bunch of changes in a row! I will post new dishes when I can, but please don't go too far. I have the last 2 years of weekend meals photographed sitting in a file. I just need to attach a recipe to them for you.
Real Simple Meals... like the domain says.. keeping that theme going here is the latest.
So On Sunday you Grilled Chicken and veggies. Here is the second simple dish to come from all that effort you put in a few days ago.
Grilled Chicken-Cheddar-Jalapeno Sandwich
Grilled Chicken breast
1/4 green bell pepper
1/2 jalapeno pepper
4 slices ( per sandwich) quality Cheddar cheese
2 slices of bread per sandwich
1 tsp of butter or oil for skillet/ pan
Slice the grilled chicken breast in half along the equator or thin strips so that the chicken sits flat on the toasted bread.
Slice up 1 HALF ( 1/2) of a Jalapeno into little rings. Figure 3 thin rings per sandwich at the most.
Slice thin slices of the green pepper (2-3) per
Slice the Cheddar thin so that 4 fit on the top of the sandwich with room to melt
|The Sandwich looks like this before cooking|
I used a Cast iron skillet to cook mine this time. If you have the right amount of oil on them they don't smoke indoors.
Heat up the skillet and add a little oil or butter and wait til it starts to brown slightly.
Place the sandwich in the pan with the veggies on the top side of the chicken breast.
Heat should be at 4-5 ( 75%) at most.
reduce heat to 50%
Keep an eye on it. it only take a few minutes cook time to brown the bottom.
place the bread on top and carefully....carefully flip the sandwich with a spatula on the bottom and your fingers on top.
let grill on the other side for a few minutes at the 50% heat level.
Carefully tilt bread up to see progress of the flipped side.
When to you liking, remove and plate.
This is what it should look like.
