Chicken Sandwiches with Blue Cheese and Apple

Ingredients

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

3 tablespoons butter softened

8 slices thick sourdough bread

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

2 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced

Instructions

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
[1]
Place the chicken breasts on a small, rimmed baking sheet or pie pan; drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool and cut into very small cubes.
[2]
Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread and place slices on a greased baking sheet, butter-side down.
[3]
Divide the chicken among the slices of bread and top evenly with cheese, then apple slices. Place the remaining bread slices on top, butter-side up. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn carefully and bake until crispy and golden, about 10 minutes more. Cut in half and serve immediately. KID-FRIENDLY ADAPTATION: Omit the blue cheese from children's sandwiches. You can sub mozzarella or provolone.

Broccoli Slaw Salad

Ingredients

12 ounces broccoli slaw mix

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1/2 red onion chopped

1/4 cup "Craisins"

2 bacon slices cooked and crumbled

1/4 cup chopped walnuts toasted

Instructions


[1]
Rinse broccoli slaw mix with cold water; drain well and set aside. Cook bacon in a small skillet over medium high heat until crisp, about 810 minutes. Set aside on paper towels to drain and cool. Crumble when cool.
[2]
While bacon is cooking, stir together mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar in a large bowl; add slaw, onion, and Craisins, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill if not serving right away. Sprinkle with bacon and, if desired, walnuts just before serving. Note: Omit onion, if desired, for Kid-Friendly version.
