Poolside chicken Sandwich
Grilled Chicken on a Poppy Seed Kaiser Roll
Shishito Peppers, Mozzarella, Pesto, Arugula, Garlic Mayo
It’s hot here in Vegas. The pool is officially open. And we are grilling everything in sight. Yesterday’s lunch was a delightful grilled chicken sandwich on a grilled kaiser roll with peppery arugula, herby pesto, gooey mozzarella, garlicky mayo, and a little surprise from grilled shishito peppers. Shishitos are thin-walled mild peppers with a fresh green vegetal flavor and just a whisper of heat. Every once in a while, though, you’ll come across a hot one!
Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Shishito Peppers Recipe
- chicken breasts
- shishito peppers
- olive oil
- kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
- kaiser rolls with poppy seeds, sliced in half
- garlic mayonnaise
- fresh mozzarella slices
Lightly coat chicken with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until cooked through, then top with sliced mozzarella. Meanwhile, toss shishito peppers with olive oil and cook in a grill basket (our favorite here) until blistered, sprinkle with salt, then trim off the stems. Brush cut sides of kaiser rolls with olive oil and grill until lightly toasted.
Spread garlic mayonnaise on both top and bottom halves of the rolls. Arrange arugula on the bottom half. Place chicken with melting cheese on top of arugula. Spoon a few dollops of pesto on top of the chicken. Arrange shishito peppers on top of the pesto. Finish with the top half of the roll.
