Recently, I participated in a virtual sandwich road trip with KRAFT and shared with you my recipe for the New Orleans French Fry Po-Boy. I invited you to share with me your favorite regional recipe for a chance to be featured on the new KRAFT Outstandwich site launching July 18th and a $100 AMEX gift card. After the panel and I read through every single recipe (there were some incredible ones!) and making a few of them ourselves, we decided that the winning recipe was:
“The Chicken Dance Sandwich”
submitted by Cheryl Wilson of Coalgate, Oklahoma
1 to 2 lb package of fresh chicken tenders
1 box of Tabasco flavored cheese crackers
1 8oz of sour cream (or you could do yogurt)
1 packet of your favorite Taco Seasoning mix
1 package of sliced baby swiss cheese
slider buns or regular buns
1/4 cup of ranch dressing with 2 tablespoons of salsa mix in
How to Make it:
Wash and pat dry the chicken tenders. In a food processor (or ziplock and heavy object) crush the Tabasco cheese crackers. Next mix the packet of taco seasoning into the 8oz of sour cream. Dredge the chicken tenders through the sour cream mixture and then roll in the crushed cheese it crackers. Place in a casserole dish and bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes. You are looking for a deep coppery color on the crust. Toast or steam the buns. Then place the chicken tenders on bottom bun and drizzle with the southwestern dressing. Place swiss cheese on top of chicken and cover with foil to melt cheese. Next dress with lettuce, onion or tomato or nothing else….it is up to you! Place the top bun on and chow down.
Thanks, Cheryl! This is an amazing sandwich that appealed to my entire panel! Look for Cheryl’s recipe which will represent Oklahoma beginning July 18th at Outstandwich.com!
