Recipe: Mexican Flavored Chicken Sandwiches

All I can say is YUM! ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil plus 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • Two skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut in to thin strips*
  • Pepper jack cheese, shredded, amount to taste
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 slices sourdough bread, lightly toasted
  • Butter lettuce leaves
*it's easier to slice thinly if you freeze for about 20 minutes first.

Directions:

Combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, cilantro, green onions, lime zest, lime juice and hot sauce in a shallow dish. Add the chicken and marinade for about 30 minutes, turning once.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken until almost cooked through. Spread chicken out in an even layer, top evenly with cheese and continue to cook until cheese is just melted.

Meanwhile, mash together the avocados, red onion, tomato, jalapeno and lemon juice in a medium bowl and season with salt.

Evenly spread guacamole on two of the toasted bread slices and top each with lettuce and the chicken and cheese. Top with the other two toasted bread slices and serve.

Question: Roasted Chicken With Cracker Crumbs and Stock for Sandwiches

My mother used to do chicken sandwiches from scratch. She would clean and cook the whole chicken in a roaster. I know she added cracker crumbs and chicken stock, but I am not sure what else she added.

She would cook the chicken for several hours, remove the meat and skin from the bone, remove the bone. After shredding the meat she put the meat back in with the ingredients. Does anyone have a recipe that is similar to this. It is the extra seasoning and ingredients I am not sure of.
Thanks for any help.

I use a box of Stove Top stuffing and chicken broth. It gives it just the right amount of seasoning. If it's too thick, add more stock. I have also used the heels of bread I keep in the freezer and poultry seasoning and salt to taste but I prefer Stove Top.

Poach/Boil 4-6 boneless chicken breasts, or tenders, which ever is on sale. Pull chicken apart using two forks. Take mound of shredded chicken and put into a sauce pan. Use your favorite BBQ Sauce, mine is Kraft Hickory Smoke, and coat chicken, it will soak up alot, so be generous. Bring to a simmer. Add your favortie spices, like onion, or chili powder. Spoon out mixture on top of your choice of bun. Top with cheddar cheese.Serve with a side. This works well with any side dish, mac and cheese, chips, fries, potato salad. Great for a leftover lunch!! Easy, Cheap and Delicious. This recipie is from a gourmet cafe in my hometown. Upscale eating for fraction of a cost.

RE: Recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

I have not used canned chicken, however I use precooked whole chickens that you buy at Sam's or Costco. I shred them add BBQ sauce and some chopped onions, heat them and serve them on onion rolls. They are always a big hit at any party. (12/17/2007)

RE: Recipe for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

Oh my gosh, it's been over a year since I've been here, and it's great to be back! My husband got the following recipe for shredded chicken sandwiches from a co-worker a few years ago. He was looking for sandwiches that taste like the ones Dairy Queen used to sell, and to him, this recipe does the trick.
  • 1 50-oz. can canned chicken
  • 1 box Stove Top stuffing, (cornbread or chicken flavor)
  • one can cream of chicken soup (low-fat is fine)
  • enough chicken broth to moisten the mix

Combine the first three ingredients in a crock pot, then add chicken broth til moistened. Cook on high for one-one and one-half hours or on low for 2-3 hours.

I realized I made an error of sorts when I originally posted this. I do use a 50-oz. can of chicken, but I end up adding more broth. The first time I made it, the recipe called for 32-42 oz. shredded chicken. Sorry, folks. (09/20/2009)
