Monterey Jack Chicken Sandwich

with Balsamic Onions and Potato Wedges

Read more

Somewhere along the line, sandwiches were deemed “lunch food only,” and we’re here to call that bad marketing. Sandwiches could not be more dinner-worthy, people! Our chefs have officially reclaimed the handheld meal and now present it to you in its most hearty, delicious, and satisfying form. Pan-seared chicken breast is served under a blanket of gooey Monterey Jack, tangy balsamic caramelized onions, and a creamy sauce. There’s even a side of roasted potatoes for good measure. Step aside, lunch police!
