A chicken salad sandwich

A chicken sandwich is a sandwich that typically consists of boneless, skinless chicken breast served between slices of bread, on a bun, or on a roll. Variations on the “chicken sandwich” include the chicken burger or chicken on a bun, hot chicken, and chicken salad sandwich.

In North America, the sandwich usually consists of a chicken filet or patty, toppings and bread. The chicken meat can be deep fried, grilled, roasted or boiled, served hot or cold, and white or dark meat chicken can be used. Shredded chicken in one form or another, such as chicken salad, can also be used in chicken sandwiches. Wrap versions of the sandwich can also be made, in which the ingredients are rolled up inside a flatbread, such as a tortilla.

Open-faced versions of the sandwich, which feature hot chicken served with gravy on top of bread, are also common variations.

Varieties
Chicken burger

Some establishments serving hamburgers also serve chicken sandwiches, giving customers an alternative to beef. Such a sandwich may also be called “chicken on a bun” or “chicken burger” in Australia or the UK, and is served on a hamburger bun with similar condiments and toppings as found on hamburgers. While most chicken sandwiches in this context usually use fried or grilled chicken breasts, a chicken burger may also be made of a grilled or fried patty of ground chicken.

History
Chick-fil-A claims that it invented the fried chicken sandwich in the 1940s. This claim is unsubstantiated, though the Chick-fil-A southern-style chicken sandwich (served with pickles on a steamed roll), introduced on March 21, 1964, was most likely the first chicken sandwich introduced by a fast food restaurant chain. Other notable vendors of chicken sandwiches include KFC and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Today, most major fast food, fast casual and casual dining chains feature some sort of chicken sandwich, even at restaurants where chicken is not a specialty.

Chicken salad sandwich
Chicken salad served between slices of bread is a chicken sandwich variation seen both in North America and elsewhere.

Chicken fillet roll
In Ireland, the popular chicken fillet roll is a baguette filled with a spicy or plain breaded chicken fillet and a mayonnaise and/or butter spread.

“Hot chicken” sandwich

Prince’s hot chicken

The hot chicken sandwich or simply “hot chicken” (Quebec French: sandwich chaud au poulet) is a type of chicken sandwich consisting of chicken, sliced bread, and gravy (which is generally poutine sauce). The sandwich is usually served with green peas and commonly found in Eastern Canadian cuisine. It’s especially popular in Quebec and is often considered one of the province’s staple dishes. Since it is so commonly found in eateries of Quebec (Rôtisserie St-Hubert, Valentine, e.g.) and less seen outside the province, many Québécois regard it as a part of Quebec cuisine and believe it to have originated in the province. This combination of chicken, gravy, and peas is known by its own term: galvaude, seen in poutine galvaude.
Although less featured in other areas of North America, the sandwich is also found in small diners from the Canadian Maritimes and throughout the Southeastern United States.

The sandwich was a working-class dish already common and well established in North American cuisine by the early 1900s and featured on the food menus of pharmacists and druggists of the time. Due to its ease of preparation and its minimal costs, the sandwich was also widely served in the mess halls and cafeterias of the mid-1900s.
This style of sandwich often makes use of leftovers from a previous meal. Substituting turkey for the chicken would make a hot turkey sandwich and substituting roast beef makes a variety of the roast beef sandwich.

Pepito

The pepito is a sandwich that is prepared with chicken or beef, beans or refried beans and a roll or bun as primary ingredients. It is a common street food in Mexico and Venezuela.

Shredded chicken sandwich
Found in Ohio is the shredded chicken sandwich. The sandwich is also referred to as a hot chicken sandwich in rural Ohio. The sandwich consists of shredded chicken, one or more types of condensed soup, seasoning and crushed crackers to help thicken and bind the sauce. This dish can be heated on a stove top or slow cooker. Invented as a way to use leftover chicken, these sandwiches became popular for covered dish dinners, potlucks, church dinners and tailgate parties. They are also sold in small-town restaurants, drive-ins and bars. The sandwich can also be found at “Ohio” community dinners on the Gulf Coast of Florida held by retirees or snowbirds from Ohio.

 

One of America’s Favorites – Po’ boy

A po’ boy (also po-boy, po boy) is a traditional sandwich from Louisiana. It almost always consists of meat, which is usually roast beef or fried seafood, often shrimp, crawfish, fish, oysters or crab. The meat is served on baguette-like New Orleans French bread, known for its crisp crust and fluffy center.

Roast beef was New Orleans’ most popular po’boy filler up to the 1970s and fried oyster po’boys are popular enough that they are sometimes called an oyster loaf, but the fillings can be almost anything, according to Sarah Rohan who in her book Gumbo Tales mentions fried shrimp, catfish, crawfish, Louisiana hot sausage, fried chicken, baked ham, duck, and rabbit.

A “dressed” po’ boy has lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayonnaise. Fried seafood po’ boys are often dressed by default with melted butter and sliced pickle rounds. A Louisiana style hot sauce is optional. Non-seafood po’ boys will also often have Creole mustard.

The New Orleans sloppy roast beef po’ boy is generally served hot with gravy and resembles a Chicago Italian beef sandwich in appearance and method of preparation, although the size, bread, and toppings differ. To make it, a cut of beef (usually chuck or shoulder) is typically simmered in beef stock with seasonings such as garlic, pepper, thyme, and bay for several hours. The beef can be processed into “debris” by cutting it to shreds when done (folklore says that a po’ boy roast is done when it “falls apart with a hard stare”) and simmering the shredded beef in the pot for a longer time to absorb more of the juice and seasoning.

In the late 1800s fried oyster sandwiches on French loaves were known in New Orleans as “oyster loaves”, a term still in use. A sandwich containing both fried shrimp and fried oysters is often called a “peacemaker” or La Médiatrice.

The origin of the name is unknown. A popular local theory claims that “po’ boy”, as specifically referring to a type of sandwich, was coined in a New Orleans restaurant owned by Benny and Clovis Martin (originally from Raceland, Louisiana), former streetcar conductors. In 1929, during a four-month strike against the streetcar company, the Martin brothers served their former colleagues free sandwiches. The Martins’ restaurant workers jokingly referred to the strikers as “poor boys”, and soon the sandwiches themselves took on the name. In Louisiana dialect, this is naturally shortened to “po’ boy”.

One New Orleans historian finds the Martin claim suspicious for several reasons, starting with the fact that it wasn’t described by the local press until 40 years after the strike, and that prior to 1969 the story from the Martin brothers themselves was that they had created the po-boy for farmers, dock workers and other “poor boys” who frequented their original location near the French Market. (The Martin brothers did write a letter, reprinted in local newspapers in 1929, promising to feed the streetcar workers, but it referenced “our meal” and made no mention of sandwiches.)

New Orleans
New Orleans is known for its grand restaurants (see Louisiana Creole cuisine), but more humble fare like the po’ boy is very popular. Po’ boys may be made at home, sold pre-packaged in convenience stores, available at deli counters and most neighborhood restaurants. One of the most basic New Orleans restaurants is the po’ boy shop, and these shops often offer seafood platters, red beans and rice, jambalaya, and other basic Creole dishes.

The two primary sources of po’boy bread are the Leidenheimer Baking Company and Alois J. Binder. There is fierce competition between po’ boy shops, and resident opinions of the best po’ boy shop varies widely.

Each year there is a festival in New Orleans dedicated to the po’ boy, the Oak Street Po’Boy Festival. It is a one-day festival that features live music, arts, and food vendors with multiple types of po’ boys. It is held in mid-November along a commercial strip of Oak Street in the city’s Carrollton neighborhood. The festival gives “best-of” awards, which gives the chefs an incentive to invent some of the most creative po’ boys.

Authentic versions of Louisiana-style po’ boys can be found along the Gulf Coast, from Houston through the Florida Panhandle. The term “po’ boy” has spread further and can be found in the South Atlantic States and in California, where it may instead refer to local variations on the submarine sandwich.

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……………

Sous Vide Carnitas
Sous vide is a foolproof way to get perfectly tender carnitas every time. The precision cooking method cooks the meat slowly and keeps it at an even temperature so the meat never overcooks or dries out. Use this big-batch recipe to meal-prep—the carnitas are perfect for burrito bowls, tacos, breakfast skillets and more…………..

Five-Spice Pulled Pork Sandwiches
These pulled pork sandwiches are designed to travel to a tailgate or picnic. Plan ahead to prep the pulled pork in the slow cooker a day ahead. Tote the pork in an aluminum pan and reheat it on a portable grill…………

Today’s Menu: Honey Ham and Swiss on Ciabatta Roll w/ Chips

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had Steak and Eggs! I heated up the leftover Wild Idea Buffalo Flat Iron Steak leftover from last night’s Dinner. These Steaks are so good, no way it going to waste! Then I also prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. This is a great way to start the day! I spent most of the afternoon at the hospital with a friend of mine who had some surgery a while back. He’s taken a turn for the worse and is back in the hospital. He’s not looking too good right now. Just praying that he’ll be okay. For Dinner tonight it was a Honey Ham and Swiss on Ciabatta Roll w/ Chips.

 

 

 

 

Well after a very long day of being with friends at the hospital I just wasn’t in the mood to cook. So I stopped by the Kroger up the road and grabbed a couple of Kroger Deli Honey Ham and Swiss on Ciabatta Roll Sandwiches. Excellent Sandwich! It’s made with Kroger Private Selection Honey Ham and Kroger Private Selection Baby Swiss Cheese. Then served on a Kroger Bakery Split Ciabatta Roll. I added some Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil and French’s Yellow Mustard to my Sandwich. Really a fantastic and filling Sandwich! I also had a few Mike Sells Reduced Fat Potato Chips. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. Till tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mike Sells Reduced Fat Groovy Potato Chips

When creating the ultimate dipping chip DW Mikesell knew it had to be groovy. And he also worked on making it lower in fat, but just as tasty as his regular chips. No one believed he could do it – until the first batch came out of the kitchen. Enjoy.

Today’s Menu: Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Potato Chips

 


For Breakfast I toasted a couple of Eggo’s – Nutrigrain Waffles. Topped both we some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Log Cabin Sugarless Maple Syrup. Also prepared a 1/2 a Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and had my Morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly Sunny , Humid, and 92 Degrees outside today. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry then later got the cart out of the shed and got some yard work done. Put on plenty of sunscreen, that sun was hot! For Dinner tonight the Kitchen is Closed. : For Dinner tonight, Izzy’s Lean Corned Beef Sandwich w/ Potato Chips.

 

 

 


With the Kitchen Closed it was Izzy’s tonight! I had an Izzy’s famous corned beef, 96% lean cut, on whole wheat bread. I also had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Chips along with a Diet Peach Snapple. There’s 360 calories and 32 carbs for a full sandwich. I had half of it and saved the other half for lunch tomorrow, half sandwich 170 calories and 16 carbs. Not only does it look delicious, it is delicious! Izzy’s by far has the best and most tender Corned Beef there is! I bought Mom a Reuben and Potato Pancake. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup topped with Cool Whip Free.

Beer-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Vegetables
Need a new chicken dinner idea? Try this grilled chicken and vegetable dish from chef Rick Bayless. Grilling the chicken and summer vegetables is a no-brainer, but in colder months, you may wish to move indoors and roast the chicken, along with some root vegetables. Whatever the weather, it’s worth seeking out piloncillo for the beer glaze. This unrefined sugar used in Mexican cooking is made from evaporated cane juice. Its complex caramelized flavor balances any bitterness in the beer. Look for it in Latin markets and online…………..

Open-Face Italian Chicken Sandwiches with Avocado Slaw
The quick tomato topping on these hearty and healthy chicken sandwiches will remind you of pizza. The accompanying slaw swaps out mayo for healthier avocado. Cook the chicken breasts on the grill if you prefer (see Tip) and consider making a double batch of the chicken for lunches and dinners later in the week……..

Chicken Pesto Pasta with Asparagus
This healthy chicken pesto pasta is easy to make thanks to convenience ingredients like rotisserie chicken and store-bought pesto. The addition of fresh asparagus—which is cooked in the same pot as the pasta—brightens up the look and the flavors of this family-friendly and easy one-pot dinner. Fresh basil, if you have it on hand, is a nice finishing touch…………
