Recipe Monday

Well hello there! 

That was quite the break, eh?  
I'm excited to hop back on the blogwagon (get it? ...I bet you missed me.)

Welp, lets hop right back in. On we go...

{Recipe Monday}
Santa Fe Chicken Sandwiches

1 package of chibatta rolls or chibatta bread cut into sandwich slices
1 red bell pepper cut into slices
1 green bell pepper cut into slices
2 boneless chicken breasts, frozen
1 T. Cajun seasoning
1T. olive oil
Pepper jack cheese in sandwich slices

Cajun mayo: 
3T. Mayo
1 t. Cajun seasoning
the juice of half of a lime

1. As you take out your chicken breasts to thaw, place them in a bag with 1 T. of olive oil and 2T. of Cajun seasoning.  Let breasts thaw and marinate in bag for a few hours.
2. Cut breasts into strips and cook in olive oil in a pan on the stove.  Cook all of the way through.  Remove chicken from pan, and saute peppers.  Add oil if needed.  
3.  While peppers are cooking, prepare your bread on a foil lined cookie sheet and make your cajun mayo.  Cut rolls or bread, and spread mayo on both sides of the inside of the bread/roll.
4. Place chicken strips on one side of the bread and cover with pepper jack cheese.
5. Start your broiler in your oven.  If you don't have a broiler, preheat your oven to 425.   If you prefer the outside of your sandwich to be crunchy, try making sandwich on a sandwich press.
6. When the peppers are soft, but not limp, place them on the other side of your sandwich.  Cover with pepper jack cheese. 
7.  Broil for 1-2 minute or press your sandwich.  Remove from heat and press sides together.
8.  Enjoy!
