Chicken Hero

Recipe name: Chicken Hero
Source: no idea
Servings: 2
Cookbook date: June 7
Date prepared: June 2

1/4 cup Mayo
2 green onions thinly Sliced
2 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
3 drops Tabasco sauce
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 loaf french bread
1/2 cup chopped tomato

In a large bowl combine mayo, onion,s mustard, salt, and sauces. Stir in chicken and half of cheese.

Split french loaf in half, lengthwise. Trim any uneven crust from the bottom so the loaves rest evenly. Place bread, face up, on baking sheet. Mix tomato into the chicken mixture. Spread evenly over loaves and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

Tim here. In true form to this blog I tweaked this recipe a little. I didn't grow up eating common everyday condiments such as ketchup, mustard and mayo. As a result I don't really have a taste for them in my adulthood. Ok, I hate them and have a hard time eating anything where I can taste any of the big three mentioned above. As a result I had to get creative and split the recipe in two, one with condiments and one without.

I thought the recipe worked just fine without the condiments, maybe a little dry, but hey thats how I roll so it didn't bother me. I tried some of Tiffany's and it was not as dry but I could definitely taste the mayo. The only other thing I changed was that I added more hot sauce to my serving because I tend to like spicier dishes than Tiffany and since we were already separating them I thought why not. Overall we both liked this recipe. It was very simple and quick to make, tasty and pretty cheap. Definitely a keeper, I'll probably try some variation of the recipe with the other half of the loaf of bread while Tiffany is away at a conference the rest of the week.
