Cilantro-Chicken Sandwiches

Turn a plain chicken sandwich into a super stacker for dinner by topping French bread (drizzled with a homemade cilantro-olive oil dressing) with grilled vegetables, rotisserie chicken, and freshly sliced tomatoes.

Real Simple AUGUST 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time:30 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 pounds grilled or roasted chicken, preferably marinated or seasoned, cut up
  • 1 long loaf French bread
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/3 cup grilled vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, tomato, red onion), cut up
  • 1 10-ounce bag potato chips


In a blender or food processor, combine the cilantro, olive oil, and salt and process until smooth.

Cut the chicken meat off the bones. Reserve all the bones and the meat from half a breast for another use. Slice the bread in half lengthwise and drizzle each half with the cilantro oil. Layer the sliced tomatoes, chicken meat, and grilled vegetables on the bottom half of the bread. Top with the second half and cut the sandwich into 4 pieces. Serve with potato chips.
