I am going to preface this blog post with the fact that I NEVER, EVER am one to buy premade anything….but for this sandwich, I have broken my rule….and with my hubby’s help, created this AWESOME sandwich.
We discovered Tyson’s Crispy Chicken when we became members of the magical land of Costco. We moved from New York City to Princeton, NJ and I figured, since I was embracing suburb life fully, the next step was a Premium Costco Membership… and it has been 100% worth it from many standpoints, but mostly because this 3-pound bag of Crispy Chicken has rocked my world in terms of taste and convenience.
In addition to pre-made chicken (I am almost embarrassed to write it), I also got premade Salsa Verde (you can just shun me as a chef now…I am not worthy). I do have a Salsa Verde recipe from culinary school, but I am going to admit, the Goya Salsa Verde (medium heat) is WAY better….
So now that I have aired my culinary “dirty laundry” so to say, let’s get on with the sandwich portion of this program…
This sandwich was 100% my husband’s brainchild, and I make it literally 1-2 times a week because it’s so easy and so delicious, you kinda can’t go wrong. The combination of the crunchy crispy chicken with the melted mozzarella, paired with the tang of salsa verde and the heat from the banana peppers, makes this one of the most well-rounded tasting sandwiches I’ve ever had. The addition of the oregano is also key – it adds a great herbaceous flavor and brings out the flavors in all the other components.
Now, since I am actually not being sponsored by either Tyson or Goya for promoting their products so brilliantly, I have also posted my own personal recipe for fried chicken below as well if you’d like to make the crispy chicken portion from scratch (it is worth is to make because it’s beyond tasty)!
Another note: We have been eating this sandwich on a fresh baguette until last night when I had Martin’s Potato Rolls on hand, and we decided, the potato rolls are WAY better for this Sammy!
