A Greek chicken sandwich has all great flavors of a Greek salad but in the perfect lunch form. Take it on picnics or just in your lunchbox to school or work for a yummy lunch you’ll be counting down the minutes until you can enjoy.
A crazy delicious sandwich recipe is something everyone should have in their recipe box. This Greek chicken sandwich is perfect for picnics, as the star of your lunchbox, or even cut into quarters for party appetizers. You can even make the two main items ahead of time to save time when you ready to enjoy it.
I played around with this the ingredients in this Greek chicken sandwich when I was developing the recipe for my green goddess vegetable sandwich. My husband has to have meat in his sandwiches so I knew I would need an option for him while I was enjoying the all vegetables in mine.
The sauce is what makes this sandwich totally sing in your mouth. You can make it ahead of time and then plan to eat it on just about everything.
Feel free to change up the vegetables on the sandwich but I adore the cucumber, quick picked onions and romaine that is on this one.
