Here’s the thing about sandwiches for dinner – I’m not a fan. I’ll take a sandwich for lunch all day err’ day, but for some reason, when it comes to dinner, I’m just not down with the sandwich (other than meatball subs and that’s really only because of the husband’s love for them).
However. Sometimes you go grocery shopping after work and when you get home, realize you’re missing a bag. And of course it can’t be the bag holding the zucchini you don’t need until the next night. Oh no. It has to be the bag containing the Clairitin which is a non-negotiable this time of year. So by the time you drive back to the store to claim the missed bag and get back home, it’s 6:30, you’re starving, your husband’s starving, and a sandwich is starting to sound like a pretty stellar idea. As long as it’s warm.
Nailed it. This may convert me into a sandwich for dinner person. Seriously. It was delicious, easy, and quick.
Turns out that when you’re starving, you don’t want to take the time to scroll through your 2,935,637 pins to find a recipe so much as you want to put food in your face ASAP. Consequently, this ended up being more an idea that I ran with.
Season 2 chicken breasts with Italian seasoning and grill on George until cooked through (it took about 10 minutes with George set at 350). Place 2 buns on a baking sheet and preheat the broiler. Put the cooked chicken breasts on the buns. Top chicken with marinara, cheese (I used provolone), and spinach. Put the baking sheet under the broiler until the buns are browned and the cheese is bubbly.
Sidenote: I topped the sandwiches with non-wilted spinach and put it under the broiler. Next time I’ll wilt the spinach and put it on the sandwich after it comes out of the broiler. If, however, you like crispy spinach, broil away, my friend.
