Chicken Florentine Sandwich

What a wonderful weekend!!!

Disney on Ice was very nice, will post pics soon ~ Laughed hysterically at What Happens in Vegas, it's a must see, new favorite romantic comedy ~ Park with Tristan on a beautiful Saturday morning ~ Shrimp rolls from seafood market, oh my ~ Fall cleaning frenzy & crazy mad mission to do ALL laundry AND even put it all away, felt amazing ~ Made 4 post-worthy dishes, 3 new ones & 1 old favorite ~

And Twilight, pg 245, speechless, in love with Edward's character already, read it at all the red lights on the way into work this AM. Funny - I was ready to call my co-worker to say I'd be late, to stop at a coffee place to have a cup while I read some. Just then, she texted me to say she'd be late. I laughed & decided I would still make it happen in the next day or so. You were all SO right. My biggest question is are they ever going to kiss. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh......................

Chicken Florentine Sandwich

This is to die for, a favorite for over 6 years, adapted from a lady who won a bunch of money for it in a recipe contest. Originally made with pizza crust & called a panini, I've adapted it to be even easier & faster by using rolls instead. We ate this for dinner last night with an amazing Asian slaw which I will post this week.

2 chicken breasts, flattened for uniformity
Italian seasoning
Garlic powder
Light Mayonnaise sprinkled with garlic powder
2 kaiser rolls
3 slices provolone cheese
1/2 box frozen spinach, thawed & cooked, all water drained
1 cup onion, chopped
1 tblsp white vinegar, cider or apple
1 tblsp sugar

Sprinkle chicken breasts with Italian seasoning & garlic powder. Grill on George Foreman (or your own method) until cooked through. Meanwhile, saute onions until softened. Add sugar & vinegar & cook through until liquid is evaporated. When done, push to side of pan. Place spinach in pan to keep warm. Mix together & set aside.

Get rolls ready - cut rolls but not completely through. Spread mayo garlic mixture on both sides. Place 1 slice provolone cheese on one side & 1/2 slice on other side (one's not enough, two's too many). Place onion spinach mixture on one side & chicken breast on top. Close sandwich & place on George Foreman grill to press together for 45 seconds.

Thoughts:

It's important that if you use a slanted grill like the George Foreman, to place the closed part of the sandwich closer to you because it will keep the filling from sliding out. I may even start pressing my sandwich in a pan. This is a must try. A yummy sandwich you'd think you ordered at a sidewalk cafe!

Um YUM! My sister and I will have to make this during her visit. It looks AWESOME!

Molly said...

Oh I could so eat that right now! I always read you when it is lunch time for me and it makes me look at my pitiful chicken salad in disgust!

Lula! said...

As per usual, I come here about 2 hours before suppertime and as usual, I want whatever you're featuring. Sigh...

Remind me to never visit your blog again unless my stomach is completely FULL! I mean this in a good way, too...

Man, I am super obsessed with Twilight. I am p.o.ed when something comes up and I can't read. Been super busy with the Kancer center and all. I have not been able to sit down with it (New Moon) since Friday. URGH!

Tiffany's crackliterature descript is so right on.

Deanna said...

Before I read your last sentence I was thinking: This sounds exactly like something hubs and I would order at one of our local cafes!

Octamom said...

This looks fantastic! I'm a big panini girl, love gournet sandwiches and burgers--so I'm excited to give this a whirl!

Loved your comment on Is Eight Enough? Thanks so much for sharing your heart--it is always so amazing to see the way families are knit together!
Blessings!

I so need one of these now...yum

angie said...

I wasn't sure how the spinach would go over so I told my kids that the sandwich is a gourmet recipe from a restaurant. I know.....I fibbed a bit. After they scarfed their sandwiches they asked if I got any more recipes from the restaurant. :)

Ace C said...

I'm hungry again. I think I'm going to have to start eating when I come to your site. It makes me hungry every single time.

Jenny said...

Is this from the Pillsbury Bake-off? I remember this recipe too. It looks great. The million dollar sandwich better taste good!

Angela said...

Yum! This looks awesome! The Florentine chicken-spinach-cheese (or cream) combo is one of my favorites. Can't wait to try!

Jessica said...
