Today’s Menu: Smoked Mozzarella Chicken Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

Smoked Mozzarella Ham Chicken Sub 004

Windy, rainy, and a little cooler out today around here. Only a high of around 60 degrees and only in the 50’s the next couple of days. Not much going on today, played around on the computer and being a slug. Dinner tonight it’s a Smoked Mozzarella Chicken Mini Sub w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I originally came across the recipe for tonight’s dinner in an issue of Simply Delicious/Taste of Home Magazine and it looked and sounded too good not to try, Smoked Mozzarella Chicken with Pasta. Everything came out delicious, especially the Smoked Mozzarella Chicken. So I thought why noy not turn it into a Mini Sub, which I did tonight! Chickens always good but the added Ham and Smoked Mozzarella makes it one of those “Keeper Recipes”.

 

 

 
To prepare it I needed the following; 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each), sea salt and pepper (to taste), 1/3 cup Whole Grain bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 thin slices smoked deli ham, 2 slices smoked mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves. I only used half amounts of the original recipe, I only prepared 2 Chicken Breasts. I also made my own Bread Crumbs by putting 2 slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread in the food processor. I used Perdue Chicken Breasts. I like using these, they store in the freezer and are individually wrapped.

 

 

 
Got my Chicken Breasts and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Placed the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Rolled the Chicken in bread crumbs to coat both sides; shaking off excess. Then in a large skillet, heated oil over medium-high heat. Added Chicken; cooked 5 minutes. Turned and cooked 2 minutes longer. Topped with Ham and Mozzarella Cheese; sprinkled with Sage. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until the thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°. Removed from heat. I served them on an Meijer Bakery Perfection Deli Mini Wheat Sub Buns. I love this Chicken recipe! Such a fantastic taste! I think I’ll have to try this sometime as an Italian Hogie, add a bit of Pasta sauce as a topping. I’ve left the original recipe that shows it with Pasta at the end of the post. Served the Sandwich with a side of Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. I’m a Fry Freak and I know it! But I use Ore Ida Fries, which are 130 calories and 20 net carbs and Bake them. Then for dessert later a Chiquita Mini Banana and a couple of Apples slices.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
