Leftovers for Lunch

Logan's Roadhouse = YUM!

We love
Logan's! We like to start out with their Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and Loaded Potato Skins. But you've got to save room for all those Yeast Rolls! And let me just say, the Parmesan Peppercorn dressing...AMAZING! I like to order the Mesquite Wood Grilled Salmon, (I replace the garlic-dill sauce with the Parmesan Peppercorn dressing.) But probably our all time favorite is the Logan's Grilled Chicken. It is a generous portion of grilled chicken, topped with the Parmesan Peppercorn dressing, and served over rice pilaf, (which beautifully soaks up the juices from the chicken.)

By the time we've had our appetizers, rolls, salads, and stuffed ourselves with peanuts, it is usually impossible to finish the entire meal. That means about half of the chicken is sure to come home with us. Could I have a to-go box please?

It would be easy to pop in the microwave the next day for lunch, but I have a better idea! Don't have a Logan's near you? No problem, just use any grilled chicken that you know to be delicious.

Easy Grilled Chicken Sandwich

What you need:
Leftover Grilled Chicken, still cold from the fridge
Bread of your choice
Mozzarella Cheese, (sliced or shredded, it doesn't matter as long as you cover most of the bread)
Butter (optional)
Any other ingredient you would like to add to the sandwich (optional)
A Panini press or some other indoor grilling instrument

What to do:
-Dice or shred the chicken and add to a bowl.
-Mix in just enough mayonnaise to hold the chicken together. Start out small, it shouldn't take much.
-Place your mozzarella on your bottom slice of bread.
-Top with chicken mixture and any other ingredients you wish.
-Cover with more mozzarella and top with the other slice of bread.
-Butter the outside of the sandwich if you wish.
-Grill the sandwich on a medium-high heat until bread is browned and cheese melted.
-Now eat the yummy thing!

Leftover chicken. I know it tastes good, but it doesn't look so good.

Now that's more like it!
