Hungry or not, this sandwich sure will tempt any appetite.
My husband who has been a Subway fan said that
this is far better than Subway sandwich.
Coming from a persnickety eater, that is a very nice compliment.
I believe him because he requested one every day for 4 days in a row
when I first created this sandwich and he hasn't got tired of it yet. (knock on wood!)
This has become his new favorite sandwich.
You need bread with a nice crust like ciabatta bread,
French bread or any kind of bread that is hefty enough
to hold up layers upon layers of good stuff...7 layers in all!
I used submarine roll for this sandwich which I enjoy...
and that's coming from a not-a-big-fan-of-sandwich girl.
For the chicken salad, I used my Chicken Salad recipe, post #145
click here, but made some modifications.
Here's some of the changes:
I used honey dijon mustard instead
of regular yellow mustard for the dressing, then
I combined some sliced marinated olives
and some marinated veggies
in the chicken salad which make the sandwich
so savory and bursting with flavors.
I left out the fresh celery, and green onions.
Savory Chicken Salad Recipe:
2 chicken breast, rotisserie chicken preferred
1/3 cup mayo
1/4 cup honey dijon mustard
1 cup marinated veggies, drained and chopped
10 pieces pemiento or garlic-stuffed olives, drained and sliced
1 cup Pecans or Walnuts, roasted and chopped
salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
Cut chicken breast into small chunks.
In a bowl, mix the mayo and mustard and add the chicken
then toss in the rest of the ingredients.
Cover with plastic wrap and
put it in the fridge to chill for a few hours (or up to 2 days).
Good for 8-10 submarine sandwiches.
To assemble the sandwich:
Split a roll and layer the bottom of the roll with the following:
first layer: lettuce leaves,
second layer: chicken salad,
third layer: sliced tomatoes,
fourth layer: pepperoncini,
fifth layer: havarti cheese,
sixth layer: slices of cooked bacon and
seventh layer: slices of shaved smoked honey ham.
Replace the top slice of roll.
Secure sandwich with toothpick, if desired.
Once you tasted this sandwich,
you'll never go to Subway ever again!
