I love trying new sandwich combos, and I had some shredded chicken and started to get creative. I am a huge fan of cream cheese and jalapenos together! I thought why not make a Cheesy Chicken and Cream Cheese Jalapeno Sandwich!
To me it seemed like it would be a perfect combo, and very easy to make! I made chicken and then shredded it, but if you don’t want to you can buy pre-cooked chicken. A rotisserie chicken would work well too!
Cheesy Chicken and Cream Cheese Jalapeno Sandwich
- 1 French Bread Loaf
- 2-3 cups of cooked shredded chicken
- 1 cream cheese block (room temperature)
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt with parsley
- 1 tsp jalapeno juice
- jalapeno slices (depends on how hot you want it)
- 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- First set your oven to 350 degree’s.
- Take your French Bread and cut it down the middle length wise for an open sandwich style.
- In a mixer combine the cream cheese, garlic salt, jalapeno juice, and maybe 3 jalapeno slices. If you like it hotter you can add more jalapeno slices to mixture. Mix this up till well mixed, and spread on one side of the bread.
- Then add a few jalapeno’s on top of the cream cheese for a little more spice, then add some chicken on the other side of the bread, and sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top!
- Bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. It will make the bread a little crunchy!
Enjoy! Very easy to do, and is something different then a normal sandwich. If you really like spice, you can add more jalapenos like I said or even a few drops of hot sauce! I am a more mild girl and don’t like a ton of spice, as my husband does. So I just make his more hot by adding extra jalapenos.
