Chicken & Mushroom Subs
Not looking to spend a lot of time on dinner? Then I have the perfect sandwich for your busy Friday night. Chicken & Mushroom Subs on a steamed bun. Using pre-cooked chicken, sliced mushrooms and shredded cheese this is a one pan wonder that will easily become your go to meal for the warm weather season.
Well we are heading into Mother’s Day weekend with lots of rain and dreary weather on this Mitten Movie Night. Trying not to get too down because we have really had great weather lately and it really was a long time coming. Since it’s rainy out tonight we will stay in and make these easy sandwiches and enjoy a cold Latitude 42 Michigan Honey Amber. This beer is such a unique mix of honey and citrus. The nice thing about this chicken sandwich is that it pairs so well with a big flavor craft beer like this. For me the perfect meal is this-a great beer and sandwich. Tonight we are watching Super Troopers! We had date night last weekend and watched Super Troopers 2 so naturally we have to go back and re-watch the original classic. Now on to the sandwich.
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees and grease a sheet pan. This sandwich is a great use of cooked chicken. If you have a rotisserie chicken on hand shred it up. Did you cook some chicken in the crock-pot and have some leftover? Great! Even boil 2 chicken breasts on the stove top. Whichever way you choose to cook your chicken breast shred it then add to the pan. On top of that add the sliced mushrooms. Pop into the oven and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes take the pan out of the oven and add the cheese then put pan back into the oven for another 5 minutes to let the cheese melt.
For the buns I decided that I wanted them to be steamed and not toasted. I tried a little trick to steam buns in the microwave that I found online and it worked really well! Just leave them in the plastic bag (of course remove the bag tie first which could have metal on it) then microwave for 30 seconds, viola! Fresh steamed buns.
The sauce is simply made by combining 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 2 Tbs Caesar dressing. This adds a creamy layer of flavor to the sandwich. Slather the sauce on the buns then slide the chicken, mushroom and cheese filling on to each bun. Pair with some chips. I recommend Better Made Garlic Dill Pickle! And here you are……
