It wasn't easy finding store-bought bread that isn't white bread in disguise, so I made my own whole wheat. It wasn't easy finding a whole wheat bread recipe that didn't require eggs, sugar and kneading, so I used the Spelt bread recipe mentioned in an earlier post. It wasn't easy finding a loaf pan in my mix that would bake bread in the right shape to make these awesome little sandwiches.
It wasn't easy building them in such a way that they would fit onto my panini maker without all the ingredients spilling out over the sides. But I managed and as the first shot clearly shows, they turned out beautifully. Ingredients? Pounded skinless, boneless chicken breasts sauteed with onions in pecan oil, soy, and Sriracha hot chili sauce. It wasn't easy to resist layering these fantastic mini-slices of bread with a little mayo, the chicken saute mix, New Zealand white cheddar cheese, and kosher dill pickle slices, and my favorite trick..... put the mustard on the outside of the bread before placing on the panini grill. Not easy to make maybe, but so easy and delicious to eat.


  1. If you 86 the pickles, I would go apeshit (forgive my fervor) for that sandwich.

    I want to make my own bread... well, in theory.

  2. That is one gorgeous sandwich and your quest for the perfect bread is noteworthy. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  3. that looks so yummy! I love pickles and cheddar!

  4. not sure if this is right but in " How to Marry a Millionaire" i want to say a chili cheese burger. Maybe one of them just said that. Its vague though!

    In Lolita, I am guessing turkey but I know it was lots of mayo.

  5. Ok these trivia questions are driving me mad! I am going to have to watch the ones that I thought for sure my hubby would know since he stores that kind of stuff in his awesome brain, but alas he knew less of them than I thought he would. now its movie night I suppose!
    Anyways, I think that Heathcliff Huxtable hid one under his pillow once. My friend Jenn seems to remember that too. So long ago!

  6. This looks so delicious and you did a great job of building it! That yummy looking bread really gets me!

    Is that little girl eating the sandwich on the left under "Who is She?" Hillary?

    BTW, I brought a bib this time so you won't have to clean up the slobber! ;)

  7. Hi Sam, thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and nice to meet you. You've a very interesting blog here...full of sandwiches! I'll scroll around after this. And this one here sounds delicious. Have a nice day!
    Cheers, Kristy

  8. You're killing me! I want to eat like 3 of those. When I am skinny will you make me one?

  9. Yum! This looks amazing!

    I totally want to make my own bread too. Someday I will do it on a regular basis.

  10. Oh my, these look amazing! What a great combination of flavors!

    I make the Dan Lepard simple milk loaf with 190 grams of whole wheat and 310 grams of bread flour with 1 tsp of instant yeast (his recipe calls for fresh, which I don't have, but 1 tsp for instant works well). I also use a little more butter and maple syrup than he calls for. It's the easiest recipe and requires nothing more than a spoon and a bowl.

  11. Had found you beforehand, but found you again at the Lady Blogger Tea Party. Lovely hat, what charming white gloves!


  12. If you could not resist layering, how could I resist eating? ;p

  13. ummm, mustard outside the sandwich? holy crap, that sounds amazing! I am totally trying that today for lunch.

  14. Ha! I was thinking of you as I made a Sammie that will send my blog troll up the wall! You will see it one day he he

    I am lovin the mustard on the outside, that would make it have this crunchy layer? yummy tang zang bang bite!

    Nice to your your pooch face on my writing site...

    The real stuff is now on

    My real job is writing and a poet, oh and the occasional domestic goddess!

    Cute girl you have...
