Delicious Chicken Sandwiches which can easily be made gluten free!
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2½ teaspoons salt
  • 1-4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, depending on your tastes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra Virgin olive oil for frying
  • 2 chicken breasts (or ¾ pounds medium shrimp (about 18), peeled, deveined)
  • 4 pieces of bread of your choice, or 2 8"-long French rolls, split horizontally
  • Mayonnaise, or Vegannaise (I highly recommend veganaise - as yucky as it sounds, it is absolutely delicious, and much better than regular mayonnaise!
  • Mozzarella or Monterey Jack Cheese, 8 slices
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce or spinach
  • Sliced tomatoes,
  • If you like: dill pickles, hot pepper sauce ( I left these out, but I'm sure they'd make great additions!
  1. Mix all your spices together.
  2. Cut up your chicken breasts and toss with the spices to coat.
  3. Add oil to hot frying pan, and cook coated chicken until done (5-8 minutes).
  4. While chicken is cooking, toast your bread, and top with mayonnaise, cheese and tomato. If you like, at this point put these under your oven's broiler for a minute, for extra melty cheese and extra crispy bread.
  5. Pull out of the oven and top with cooked chicken, lettuce, and tomato.
  6. Enjoy your delicious sandwich!
