Grilled Chicken and Ham Sandwich is really tasty and easy to make. Drizzle a bit of homemade creamy sriracha and you got yourself one perfect sandwich.
My weekday mornings are crazy, seriously. Dealing with 8-year-old at 7 o’clock is no joke.
Who, by the way, loves to rest his head on the toilet paper roll, while sitting on the toilet and snooze before school.
He takes too long in the bathroom, all the same, there is a whole other level when you are dealing with tween and teen.
It’s like trying to explain the unexplainable; where are my socks, my red/yellow shirt, what’s for breakfast?
More meltdowns that you could even imagine. Do I need to go into further details? I think you get the point!
I believe that one long vacation (alone), wouldn’t be enough. Can you imagine that I placed a cup of water to boil for my quick instant coffee in the kitchen cabinet instead of the microwave?
What was worse, I closed the cabinet door and waited for a few seconds before I realized what I did!
A few efff bombs later, I made another one, of course, plugged my ears with sounds of Stone Sour and started to brainstorm what recipe should I post, and there you go. My mornings are lovely. You envy me, don’t you?!
A few months earlier while stopping to grab something quick to eat at subway because I didn’t want to cook for myself, two pregnant women stood behind me.
So, they asked me how does subway’s buffalo chicken taste with toppings that I added; pickles, spinach, red onions and jalapenos with a good amount of creamy Sriracha.
I was like “Spicy” and good. I wasn’t rude, I promise, I even added a smile on my grumpy face.
However, I was just simply waiting to pay my order, so discussing my sandwich wasn’t something in my mid-morning agenda. Especially with 4 more people waiting in line.
Also, I was in 3 sizes, too big joggers looking more like a homeless person without makeup and an oversized sweatshirt.
I just wanted to grab a sandwich and go back home to finish an exhausting project while chomping on my footlong, without even making eye contact.
Did I mention earlier that I am not a morning person?
Anyhow, that’s how my sandwich was born; mostly inspired by my footlong!
Since I have my smarty pants college students that write from time to time, asking for no-bake recipes, I thought to make this sandwich.
One latest email got me chuckling. The question was: Can they (roommates) “make/bake” bread in the microwave? It was funny and cute at the same time!
Needless to say, we were all 19, right?! With that being said, I’ll try to include some fun, no-bake recipes and test few that could be made in the microwave.
For this sandwich, you could make the bread yourself or simply buy french bread.
Of course, I baked it but used canned “Pillsbury” French bread, sprinkled with Japanese sesame seasoning and then baked in my oven.
Everything is optional here. You can make and bake your own bread, use store-bought grilled chicken or grill it yourself, add smoked turkey, or Virginia ham, it really comes down to what you like or have.
