Ted's Turkey and Bacon
My Chef's Special Small Plate
(included three cheeses and mustard apples
and a pork & beef sandwich)
But that sandwich hunger was still not satisfied. Until yesterday.
Old Bay Chicken Sandwich (or Minnesota Po' Boy!)
Serves 2 unless you are really hungry
8 ounce chicken breast
6-8 inch petite loaf
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 T lemon juice
Old Bay Seasoning
1 small dill pickled, diced fine
butter, olive oil
(Lettuce, tomato, onion optional)
Generously season chicken breast with Old Bay. Heat skillet with a few teaspoons olive oil. Brown both sides of chicken, then finish cooking in 325 F oven, until thermometer reads 160-165. Let chicken rest 5 minutes.
Slice bread in half lengthwise and butter insides. Brown in oven 5 minutes. Combine mayo, pickle, lemon, and 2 teaspoons Old Bay. Smother bread with mayo; slice chicken lengthwise and layer in bread. Close sandwich and enjoy!
Hint: squeeze lemon over the hot chicken pan to deglaze a bit and pour that mix over the sliced chicken.
