  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic salt, jalapeño liquid and jalapeños, if using. With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat mixture until creamy, about 2 minutes. Spread 2 Tbsp. of mixture onto top half of each sandwich. Place additional jalapeños on top, if desired.

  • Divide chicken among bottom halves of bread. Sprinkle with Cheddar. Bake sandwich halves until Cheddar and cream cheese melt, about 7 minutes. Pair up cream cheese halves and chicken halves. Serve immediately.
