Asian Apple "Chick'n" Sandwich

My first recipe! Yay!
Made with:

5-6 pieces grilled Gardein Chick'n
1/4 thinly sliced apple
2-3 leaves of artisan lettuce
1 tablespoon of Asian toasted sesame dressing
1/4 loaf whole wheat french baguette 
& some home-grown vegetarian love.

 Instructions for the sandwich-creating impaired:

1.  Grill the Chick'n. I used our George Foreman grill. They are fairly thin, so this shouldn't take more than a few minutes. I like to get a couple burnt sections on them, to add a little more flavor
2. Cut yourself a nice section of the baguette. (I, having quite freakishly small hands, keep my sandwich sizes rather small so that I can hold them with ease.) Split you can put the yummy-ness in the mdidle.
3. Cut the apple into thin slices. Make sure they'll still pack a nice crunch, but you don't have to chomp too hard to bite through them. When you've placed enough apple on your sandwich, you can either cut the rest into fry-style pieces, or lather some lemon juice on the cut side (to keep it from browning) and put it in the fridge for later!
4. Get a few leaves of lettuce. Rip them into sandwich-appropriate sizes.
5. Put all of the yummy-ness on the bottom half slice of your bread. I skillfully layer my insides: lettuce, apple, chicken. But any order is acceptable.
6. Pour some o' that Asian dressin' over the insides. I used Kraft's Low-Fat Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing.(pictured on the right.) I am sure any other sesame dressing would taste just as delish!
7. Put your top on. Top of the bread, obviously
8. Eat it. Enjoy it. Duh!

I ate it with steamed split peas. They are obviously healthier than french fries, but can be eaten as finger foods the same way.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! YUM! Won't miss meat when you are eating food like this!

OH! I almost forgot. IT HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN 2 WEEKS OF VEGETARIANISM. 50 more to go!


  1. Would definitely try this, it sounds delish!

    1. It really is! I thought I would have trouble finding nutritous and delicous things to eat being newly vegetarian, but it is so much easier than I thought.
