Another delicious and simple 5-ingredient (plus a spice!) meal for you to try!
This recipe takes all the amazing flavors of chicken fajitas and puts them into sandwich form.
Make a melt…with grilled chicken strips, topped with sauteed peppers and onions, some melted cheese on top. This meal originally was born out of a “pantry challenge” and turns out it was an amazing meal and we’ve made it often since then!
Because it’s so easy to “see” how to make and won’t take long to put together, I had to share it as part of this 5-ingredient meal series!
Here’s a peak at how these sandwiches come together…
Cut bread to the size sandwich that you want. Add salsa.
Slice up the grilled chicken. Or use batch grilled chicken.
Lay a couple strips of grilled chicken over the salsa.
Top with sauteed veggies. Then cheese. Melt in microwave or under broiler. Serve.
