You know my love for sandwiches, and boy is this a good one! It’s a delicious combo of grilled chicken, creamy brie, tart apple and sweet acid from the balsamic vinegar — plus I added bacon (duh). And it’s super simple to make as well — basically you just throw all the ingredients together–the only process is making the reduction, which is worth it. You’ll love the combination of salty, creamy, sweet and tart. Delish!
- Add bacon
- I didn’t have good luck shaving the apple so I just cut it with a knife
- Serve with a green salad
Chicken Sandwiches with Brie, Shaved Granny Smith Apple and Dijon-Balsamic Reduction on Toasted Challah
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 8 slices challah bread, about 1/2-inch thick, toasted, or grilled
- 6 ounces Brie cheese, sliced
- 4 cooked chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
- 1 Granny Smith apple
In a small saucepan, whisk together vinegar, mustard and honey. Set pan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer until liquid reduces to 1/4 cup, about 3 minutes.
Spread mixture on toasted or grilled challah bread slices. Top with Brie and then chicken. Using a vegetable peeler, shave apple into thin slices and arrange over chicken. Top with second slice of bread. (Add bacon if desired.)
