I have my brother-in-law Dave to thank for these mouth-watering main course-worthy sandwiches. Because I don’t love working with raw protein, this recipe – utilizing frozen chicken tenders – has made it easier for me to prepare fresh and incredibly tender chicken for my family. Plus, I can’t get enough of the flavor/texture combo…from the tangy and slightly salty chicken to the soft and subtly sweet bun to the creamy cheese and crunchy cole slaw. Perfection.
Bonus #1: it’s quick. You, or whoever does the cooking at your house, can prepare this recipe in the time it takes to drink two beers. Bonus #2: it’s healthy. Poaching protein in liquid is a great way to increase flavor and reduce added fat (that often results from using alternative options such as butter, oils or heavy sauces).
Pair these sandwiches with corn on the cob or baked sweet potato fries plus a salad or steamed green veggie for a colorful and delicious dinner.
