there’s this little deli next to my store that makes the best dang sandwiches i’ve ever had in this city. not only is the store owner the cutest old man ever, but everyone there knows my order by heart (chicken, bacon, avocado, with tomato, extra sauce, cut in half). i swear the first time i ate this sandwich i just shoved it directly into my stomach in one bite. oh my god, it’s good.
so anyway, for awhile now i’ve been wanting to recreate it at home… the only thing i was missing was the super amazing egg bread they use, but whatever, it was still delicious.
jessi (and her pregnancy cravings) were drooling at the description, so i told her i’d make a recipe post, with pictures and everything. mostly because i think everyone in the world needs to eat this sandwich, but actually because she’s a babe and i do what she tells me lest she stop sending me pictures of her giant preggo boobs. priorities, people.
so anyway, as soon as i got home, i washed the chicken, covered it in spices (italian seasoning, black pepper, and a bit of sea salt). put about a cup of water in a pyrex dish, and place in the oven at about 350-375 for roughly two hours.
(find something fun to do for two hours! in my case… watch a movie, dye dan’s hair, get my feet rubbed, and makeout a whole bunch, cause we’re twelve, apparently)
(don’t forget to do all the important stuff like cut up some avocado and tomato!)
take a look at the spread! chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, arugula, havarti, sherwood’s sauce… i didn’t have any egg bread so i made mine with honey oats multi-grain bread and for dan’s i used a keiser bun the size of my FACE.
and yes, obviously, this totally got me laid.
