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.
