I was watching TV this morning and there was a scene where some guy was eating what appeared to be a ridiculously delicious sandwich, accompanied by skinny fries. I immediately knew what my goal was for the day: make that sandwich. Now, thanks to the lack of any kind of sliced lunch meat and the extreme overabundance of sausage, that proved to be difficult, but I found a solution. Chicken pesto sandwiches.4 chicken breasts 1-2 tablespoons vinegar 2-3 teaspoons dried herbs (I used thyme, rosemary, and an italian mix) 1-2 tablespoons mustard 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder 1/4 cup of oil salt and pepper
First I marinated the chicken breasts in all that business (1 chicken breast is enough for about 1 person) for a couple hours.
Then I grilled the chicken breasts until done in a little bit of oil. They came out nice and charred but not burnt. I cut the breasts into smallish pieces and set that business aside.bread butter mayo pesto tomato cheese
Then I buttered one side of some bread and threw it on the griddle with the butter down and a piece of cheese on top, then the chicken. After the first side was toasty, I put another piece of bread (butter up) and flipped.
When those were done, I opened them up and added mayo, pesto (I bought it pre-prepared in a jar), and some sliced fresh tomato. YUMMY.
As for the fries, that was easy. I just peeled and washed some potatoes, cut them up like McDonalds fries almost, then deep fried them in pretty much a whole bottle of oil. I did them in several small batches and waited until the outsides were crispy, then salted them.
All in all, success was had and I even have some left over for tomorrow :-)
