 Chili Chicken Sandwiches
“My husband tells me that these are a guy's type of sandwich. I love that! We serve them when we have friends come over to watch a game on TV. It's also great for a quick family dinner when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.” —Dena Peterson, LaPorte, Texas
