I wanted a good hearty sandwich to go with our potato soup & I had some leftover grilled chicken breast in the fridge so I chopped it into bite size pieces, threw it on some Ciabatta bread, added pesto, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and came up with this creation that is sure to be had again in our house!
1 loaf Ciabatta Bread
Roasted red pepper
sliced or chopped cooked chicken (leftover chicken is good)
Typically I roast my own red peppers which is totally easy to do, but I LOVE Rao's & I saw this jar of roasted red peppers and portabella mushrooms in the store so I had to try them - they are really good for a jar roasted red pepper, but I still prefer tre freshness of roasting my own.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut Ciabatta bread in half-length wise on one side layer pesto, chicken and roasted red peppers, on the other side of the bread layer tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Pop in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or till the cheese is totally melted.
Simple and delicious!!
Since living back in Texas this mostly chicken and fish family has been on a serious BEEF kick. It seems like we just can't get enough. Anytime we go out to dinner which is typically Mexican food, we order beef, beef fajitas, beef tacos, carne asada, the Chick-Fil-A cows all over are freaking out! So you should expect over the next few months to see us blow up like blimps, I mean just check out this recipe, beef & butter, what a combination, this just screams heart attack, but it is OH SO GOOD!
1 large onion
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
1/2 yellow peppers
2 sticks butter
1/2 cup thick Worcestershire Sauce (I'm sure you can use the normal sauce, but the thick is so much better!)
1/4 cup soy sauce
whole wheat rolls
3 pounds thinly sliced steak (I used eye of round)
Tenderize steak with meat tenderizer. Add a little pepper to the meat if you would like. (I did.) Then slice into thin strips.
Slice onions & cook in 1/4 cup butter till soft and slightly brown - set aside. Slice peppers & cook in 1/4 cup butter till soft and slightly brown, set aside.
Oh baby, I could eat them just like this!
Add 1/2 cup thick worcestershire sauce & 1/4 cup soy sauce to skillet, throw your meat in a little at a time and cook till just done.
Toast whole wheat buns (see, I try to make it a little healthy!), layer bottom bun with Swiss cheese, peppers & onions, then meat! Add about 1-2 TBL of the sauce from the cooked meat and top with bun. Devour.
