Cheesy Chicken Subs

I've been part of the Food Services staff at Appalachian State University for 33 years. One summer we created this flavorful sandwich that combines seasoned grilled chicken, Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms and onions. Thousands of students have enjoyed this wonderful sub since then. —Jane Hollar, Vilas, North Carolina

    My husband and I thought these were kind of bland. Like they were missing something.

    This is an easy recipe. Everyone I serve it to likes it. I usually use Italian dressing mix since it's easier to find.

    I used standard Italian dressing mix. It was wonderful.

    Yum! I have made these numerous times and they are always a hit. I use zesty italain dressing mix, though. Very good, quick and easy!

    Loved the sub but I did used Ranch salad dressing mix instead because that was the only flavor I had. Will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing.
