Chicken, Cheddar and Apple Sandwich

Author: Canadian Living

Around 11 a.m., tummies start growling in the cat between ski runs. What a treat to find these sandwiches in the cooler. The chefs wrapped this creamy sandwich filling in both soft tortilla shells and buns; either type of sandwich is satisfying.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 celery finely diced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple finely diced
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper finely diced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 buns
  • 16 old white Cheddar cheese optional
  • 2 cups packed mixed salad greens

Method

In bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, thyme and basil. Add chicken, turning to coat; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Transfer chicken to foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for about 18 minutes or until no longer pink inside; let cool and dice.
¡In large bowl, stir together chicken, celery, apple, red pepper, onion and mayonnaise until combined.

Cut buns in half horizontally. Top each bottom half with about 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the chicken mixture, 2 slices of the cheese and about 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the salad greens; sandwich with tops of buns.
