Season 7's Estella Hays and I invented this recipe one day at the Ranch when we were bored with a plain chicken sandwich. The addition of bell peppers gives this sandwich added flavor, and the sprouted grain bread lends it a great texture.
Ingredients 1 tablespoon yellow or spicy mustard 2 slices Trader Joe's or other brand sprouted whole grain bread, toasted 1 large leaf romaine lettuce 3 ounces lean, low-sodium sliced chicken breast 1/2 roasted red bell pepper, cut in strips 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican four-cheese blend Directions Spread the mustard on 1 piece of toast. top with the lettuce, chicken and bell pepper, ending with the cheese. Place the half sandwich under a broiler or in a toaster overn for 20 to 30 seconds, until the cheese melts. top with the second piece of toast. Cut in half. Serve immediately.
Makes 1 sandwich.
