Reviews for Chicken Melts
"Felt adventurous making this sandwich as it was unlike anything we usually eat. My husband didn't care for it as he's a "plain" food kind of guy. However, my son and I thought it was fabulous! Will make it again when the hubster won't be around for dinner. :)"
"These are so good and easy to make! Never thought to put these items together as a sandwich!"
"I had lots of left over turkey from Thanksgiving and thought of this sandwich/ everyone loved them/used swiss cheese on it - had just bought some hot pepper jelly at a craft sale!"
"This sandwich was a nice change of pace. I substituted Habanero jelly since that is what I had on hand, it was spicy hot and delicious. I use my George Foreman grill to make any kind of sandwich melt instead of a pan and it comes out just like a panini press with the ridges and everything. No need to butter the slices..which can rip the tender bread...just run your butter over the hot grill plates, stick your sandwich in & voila...crispy, crunchy, buttery & delicious...plus almost zero clean up."
"this is a great sandwich with lots of possibilities."
"I thought it would be weird but I happened to have all the ingredients so I made it for my Teenage son..he asked for seconds."
"This is one of my favorite sandwiches!"
"Outstanding! My family gave these rave reviews. The only changes I made were: I put the jelly on the inside of BOTH slices of bread and I used sharp white cheddar cheese instead of the Havarti. We will definitely be making these again!"
"Couldn't believe I had all the ingredients on hand. Just had to make it. It was good. My son thought it was a little too sweet but I expected it with the pepper jelly."
