Melty Chipotle Chicken Sandwich

February 7, 2019


Sometimes, I'm in the mood for a sandwich. But I'm not the type for a simple ham and cheese or PB&J despite their, albeit, deliciousness. I want a good, hardy, hot sandwich. One with a toasted, crusty bread holding within it, layers of flavor and texture. Despite being overplayed, I've decided to share my version of the chipotle chicken sandwich featuring a homemade whole wheat loaf (Recipe not included).
