South Of The Border Chicken Sandwich

 South Of The Border Chicken Sandwich

Take your taste buds south of the border with the South of the Border Chicken Sandwich. A flavorful fiesta in every bite. This recipe was created from a Baja Chicken Subway sandwich. I had ordered Baja Steak but when I got home and started eating I realized it was chicken but it was SO good I wasn't upset they made my order wrong. So I knew right then I needed to try and replicate it. I think I hit the nail on the head because I enjoyed my version just as much as theirs!!!

South of the Border Chicken Sandwich

Cook time: 1 Hr 30 Min  Prep time: 30 Min  Serves: 10 to 12 six inch subs
4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
3 clove garlic cloves
1/2 sweet onion
garlic salt, or salt, black pepper to taste
1 lg bell pepper
1 sm sweet onion
1 lb bacon
1-2 lb grated pepper jack, or muenster or any white melting cheese see note below
see link below for chipotle sauce
1. I slow cooked my chicken in a small electric roaster but you could boil it. I added the smashed garlic closes and 1/2 sweet onion cut into 3 quarters, salt and pepper.
2. Once chicken was done and cooled I cut it into 1/2 inch pieces and shredded it. I added garlic salt to taste.
3. Then I added the bacon which I had cooked, cooled and chopped up. The best way I've ever found to cook bacon and the ONLY way I ever cook it is on a baking sheet in the oven at 375º for 22 to 25 minutes, comes out picture perfect every time and I personally don't have a splatter issue.
4. Also dice up 1 large bell pepper and one small sweet onion to the size you like, I prefer a very small dice. Add that to the rest of the goodies.
5. Toss together until well incorporated. Add salt and pepper if desired to taste. Set aside. At this point you could add chipotle mayo, but this makes a BIG bowl so I waited to add it to the sandwiches. With the chipotle mayo mixed in it would make a great "chicken salad" mix.
6. Toast sub buns and add cheese, I use an electric griddle to toast mine and place a lid on top to help melt the cheese. I used Steak buns, I like the softness of the crust but it toasts up great.
7. Place generous amount of chicken on very cheesy buns and add plenty of chipotle mayo. It will be messy but it is worth every napkin you use!!!
