Sandwiches are no rarity around here. When we need a quick and healthy meal, toasted wheat bread loaded with deli meat and veggies is a great option. Sandwiches are generally the first thing I look over on a menu when we go out to eat. Turkey club, reuben, ham and swiss… burgers kinda count as a sandwich, right? Give me anything I can eat between two pieces of bread, and I’m happy! (Let’s not take that literally.)
But, you don’t have to go out on the town to get a delicious gourmet sandwich. Who says homemade sandwiches have to be boring? With a little extra effort, this Creamed Spinach Chicken Sandwich could be on your plate for dinner tonight!
My sister left a bag of sandwich rolls from the weekend. Eight bakery fresh rolls for only $1.50! Since we’re all about using food before it goes bad, sandwich rolls seemed like a necessary ingredient for dinner.
I was already planning to bake up a bunch of chicken breasts as food prep, and this creamed spinach chicken sandwich was born!
Creamed Spinach Chicken Sandwich
- 2 sandwich rolls, sliced in half
- 2 chicken breasts, baked
- 4 cups spinach
- 1/4 cup plain Chobani Greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- veggies of choice to top
- If you don’t have baked chicken breast on hand, bake it in a pan with chicken broth at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. These were seasoned with Perfect Pinch Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning by McCormick.
- Once chicken is baked, saute spinach in a sauce pan with a swirl of EVOO.
- Once spinach is sauteed, mix in Greek yogurt and seasonings. Creamed spinach is done!
- Set broiler on oven to high and place rolls on a baking pan, open face up. Once coils are glowing, stick pan on the highest rack for about 1 minute to crisp and heat bread. *Watch carefully, they will burn easily!
- Layer sandwich roll with chicken, veggies, and creamed spinach.
