Easy Chicken Sandwich Melts

Easy Chicken Sandwich Melts


Easy Chicken Sandwich Melts


I prepare the mixture at home and bring to work, along with the bread, and cook in our toaster oven. People think I’m a SUPER fancy cook. They are always surprised when I share how easy the recipe is to make. So yummy!!! Nurses can be a picky bunch.


Karla, thank you so much for sharing that with me, I’m all smiles


Hi Natasha!:) Oh my goodness, these chicken melts are absolutely divine! Operating out of a tiny dorm-room kitchen, these sandwiches are a life-saver – I make this recipe at least once a week! Fantastic!


YAASSS!! I’m so happy to hear that! Thanks for the awesome review! Reply


Natashaaaa… These were supposed to be so good:( ive tried these at my sisters and they were really delicious. Now I decided to make them myself, so, sad story of the day… I tried to make these real fast and apparently read your recipe wrong and added all of the ingredients of the johnnys seasoning to the chicken!!! So much salt!! Not sure why I didn’t realize that 1.5 Tbsp of salt might be too much:( just curious if I’m the only one here who made that mistake..


Oh noooo!! That’s such a bummer :(. You’re the first but I can see how you could make that mistake just by quickly reading the ingredient list. I did mention that I used 1/4 tsp of the seasoning in the instructions. Oh man, what a bummer! I inserted a note after the list of seasoning ingredients both at the top and in the print friendly so it doesn’t happen to anyone else.


Yummy! So nice and simple! It can sometimes take me a while to make even the simplest recipe, but this one took so little time! Or maybe I’m just finally getting the hang of preparing meals…=) Either way, thank you, Natasha!


I’m the same way. I was always the one to take the longest to get anything done from sweeping the floor to making recipes. Oh well.


A little obsessed with these? Yes, you can so so! So good!! The cilantro and sriracha give it amazing flavor! Thanks


I’m so happy you love the recipe


I think that would work if you shred it nicely with forks. If it seems too dry, just add a little more mayo to the mixture but you may not have to.


Thank you SO much for the recipe. I’ve tried making these a few times already, and they’re gone within minutes! The cilantro in the sandwiches is PERFECT…I never even thought that it would be key! Thank you very much for sharing!


Thank you for your awesome review!


So so so so good! Definitely a favorite! Easy to make and so delicious! Thank you Natasha!


Yay! I’m so happy to hear that

These chicken sandwich melts are scrumptious and they are an easy company-ready dish that takes minutes to put together. They will win over a crowd every time! The first time I tried them (shamelessly eating 3 sandwiches), I was scribbling down the recipe before I finished chewing. I’m always on the lookout for recipes that are great for unexpected visitors or even expected ones. You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen for your friends and family to love what you cook.


This spread is loaded with cheesy chicken and tomatoes and is seasoned to perfection! (P.S. Make sure to check out the easy recipe for Johnny’s Seasoning in the post below). You have to try this recipe! I made them as soon as I could get to the grocery store and brought them to my Mom’s house and it was obvious after 5 minutes that I should have made more!


Every time we visit our family in the Seattle, WA area, we come home with loads of inspiration and new recipes. The gals in my family are amazing cooks! They have graciously contributed loads of recipes to this blog and I’m so thankful for that. This recipe comes from my beautiful friend/Cousin’s wife, Alla – there should be an easier term for “cousin’s wife.” For the sake of simplicity, I’ll call her my friend, nah we’re more like sisters. Other great recipes from Alla include:

Talk about a Mediterranean experience! Thank you Alla for sharing your recipes with all of us. You’re welcome to visit us in Idaho anytime!


Ingredients for Alla’s Easy Chicken Sandwiches:


1 loaf good Bread, sliced


2 cans (12.5 oz each) chicken breast in water, well drained


3/4 cup real mayo, or to taste


*Johnny’s seasoning, to taste (see recipe for making your own seasoning below)


1 large tomato, diced


1/3 bunch Cilantro


6 oz mild cheddar cheese, finely shredded inside or a slice of cheese on top.


Sriracha hot chili sauce to taste, or your favorite hot sauce (optional)


*You can make your own Johnny’s seasoning easily:


(NOTE: Do not use this entire batch of seasoning for this recipe – add it to taste)


1 ½ Tbsp sea salt


1 Tbsp paprika


1 tsp freshly ground pepper


1 tsp garlic powder


How to Make Easy Chicken Sandwich Melts:


1. Drain canned chicken and transfer to a large mixing bowl and break it up lightly with a fork.


2. Stir in 3/4 cup mayo or to taste along with Johnny’s seasoning to taste (I used a little more than 1/4 tsp seasoning).


3. Add diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro and shredded cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.


4. Add Sriracha hot sauce to taste. The Sriracha hot sauce gives it a nice kick and it’s so good, but if you want it to be kid friendly, you can divide the mixture and only put it into half of the spread


5. Spread generously over good sliced bread (this one’s from Costco) and bake uncovered on a cookie sheet at 350˚F for 8 minutes. Garnish with fresh cilantro and fresh tomatoes if desired


I hope these pictures did this sandwich justice. I really, really want you to try them and be sure to report back and let me know how much you loved them.
