Suiza Chicken Salad Sandwiches

The original recipe for this was called Chicken Suiza Melts, and was shared on Weekend Potluck a few months back, by Siggy Spice.  Looks like she got the recipe from a friend, who got the recipe from Rachael Ray’s site.  This original sandwich was served hot, with broiled cheese, which I am sure is deeeee-licious!  But, seeing as how it’s so beautiful outside, we changed things up a bit, and made it into a cold Chicken salad sandwich, spreading the bread with guacamole and slices of tomato.  YUM!  Try it both ways!

  • 4 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey

  • 1 whole Rotisserie Chicken, Skin Discarded And Meat Shredded
  • 6 whole Wheat Rolls, Split
  • 1/2 cup Guacamole, Or As Needed To Spread On Slices Of Bread
  • 12 slices Tomato (I used halved grape tomatoes)

Preparation Instructions

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until the onions are softened and translucent. Stir in lime juice, honey and salsa verde and continue heating until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and shredded cheese. Stir in shredded chicken and refrigerate for 2 hours or until chilled. Split the whole wheat rolls and spread the bottom half with a generous amount of guacamole and sliced tomatoes. Add some of the chicken mixture and top with the top bun. Enjoy!

(In a big hurry?  Wholly Guacamole is found in the produce section, and is smashed, seasoned and ready to go avocados! No additives!)

Enjoy!

    I’m not sure I understand the 4 “cartons” of garlic?
    How much Chicken??

    OK wait was I supposed to open the original links first and this is just in addition ?
    Sorry to mess up your beautiful post with questions !

  2. What are ‘cartons of garlic’? And a note on the Wholly Guacamole, it is YUMMY! Not as good as homemade, but works very well in a pinch!
