Recipe from Sunset

Cheesy chicken sandwiches get a kick from a bit of cayenne. If you prefer an even more robust flavor, spread the rolls with a mixture of Dijon mustard and chili paste.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 boned, skinned chicken breast halves (1 lb.), sliced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1 cup sliced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 submarine or French bread rolls, split
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup shredded jack cheese

Preparation

Total: 20 Minutes

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add chicken, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, and seasonings and cook until chicken is browned and no longer pink inside, 6 minutes.
