Hot Swiss Chicken Sandwiches Recipe

Hot Swiss Chicken Sandwiches Recipe

I've been making these open-faced sandwiches for years, and people always ask for the recipe. I sometimes serve the filling on slices of sourdough or tucked into pitas. —Edith Tabor of Vancouver, Washington

"Delicious & easy to make. It's easier to eat if the tomatoes are chopped though."

"I made this today for my husband and I for lunch, and we both liked it very much! Delicious! I used Light Miracle Whip instead of mayo, no butter, and I used half a whole wheat pita pocket instead of Italian bread. It was delicious! I served it with baby carrots and a cup of fresh blueberries. Very, very tasty."

"I made this tonight. Qick and easy, doesn't dirty up too many dishes, and my wife and I both thought it was delicious. I made a completely veganized version. Here were my substitutions:

- Veganaise instead of egg-based mayo. Honestly I think Veganaise tastes better.
- A package of Westsoy seitan instead of chicken. Seitan is a high-protein, wheat gluten-based veggie meat that has a taste and texture similar to chicken in recipes. You can make your own but I usually buy it ready-made.
- Earth Balance instead of butter. Great alternative in recipes or on toast.
I made the sandwiches on multi-grain bread. I like the pita suggestion, also; maybe we'll try that next time."
