Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Once a week, I meet up with a private tutor to study Turkish. It’s a challenge learning another language, but it has been well worth the effort.

On nights when I go to my Turkish lessons, I only have about an hour to make dinner. So on these nights, I usually try to make something quick and easy. This can sometimes feel like an impossible task because I rarely eat fast food or frozen/microwaveable meals.

Once again out of pure luck, I managed to throw something together that turned good.


Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Serves 2

1 chicken breast
1/2 green bell pepper
Chopped onion
Shredded pepper jack cheese
Salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder
4 slices of French bread
Canola oil and Olive oil


1. Rinse chicken breast and pat dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Heat about a tbsp of canola oil on a pan. Once hot, add chicken and cook thoroughly. Set aside.
3. Chop green pepper and onion and saute in olive oil in a separate pan. Season with cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.


4. Place French bread on a cookie sheet with shredded cheese on one side. Broil just long enough to melt cheese and remove from heat.


5. Put some of the pepper/onion mixture over the melted cheese.


6. Cut the chicken breast into thin strips and as pieces as you’d like over the peppers.



7. Add a little mayo on the other side on thr bread and cover the other half of the sandwich. Put a little bit of olive oil or butter on a pan and grill each side of the bread.

The tastes of all the individual ingredients combined really well. A gourmet sandwich made at home on the fly.
