One of my most very favorite things to eat in the whole world is a sandwich and a grilled cheese is at the top of the list. OK, I know that sounds a little simple from a “food blogger” but I LOVE a grilled cheese sandwich. There is something so yummy to my tummy about a crunchy buttered bread with ooey gooey cheese…and when you add other yummy stuff to that combo it only gets better.
Last week I made one of the most delicious grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had and it was all by accident…I just love it when that happens.
So it all started with some thawed chicken breasts. Have you ever thawed a couple of chicken breasts and then realized that you just couldn’t eat another baked (or grilled) chicken breast? Well I had reached that point so it was time to shake it up a bit.
I started looking in the fridge to see what I had on hand to amp up my boring chicken and I came up with bell peppers, onions & cheese. Well that was quite the combo and then it hit me…philly cheesesteaks!! Well, chicken philly cheesesteaks…only I didn’t have any rolls…but I had bread so grilled cheese it was!
I have to tell you this was one of the best grilled cheese I have ever had. It was super crunchy from toasting both sides of the bread and then it was filled with a delicious chicken mixture that was a little sweet and a little savory making for a perfect bite each time, and don’t even get me started on the cheese…oh the cheese…it was so, so cheesy and perfect! I used American cheese but provolone would be great as well.
If you wanted to use beef you could, like I said I had chicken on hand…either are so, so good!
