Not Your Mother's Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Turn the classic toasted cheese sandwich into something special with apple butter and sliced chicken.
4 slices sourdough or other rustic whole-grain bread
2 tablespoons apple butter
4 (3/4 to 1 ounce) slices sharp Cheddar cheese
4 oz thin slices cooked chicken breast
2 tablespoons butter, softened
On 1 side of 2 bread slices, evenly spread apple butter. Top each with 1 slice of cheese, half of the chicken, a second slice of cheese and remaining bread slices.
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-low heat. Place sandwiches in skillet. Spread tops of bread with remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Cook 5 minutes, turning once, until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown.
Preparation/Total Time: 10 minutes
Easily change up this sandwich by using different kinds of cheese, such as Monterey Jack or Muenster.
If you need to serve a crowd, this recipe can be doubled or tripled. Prepare all of the sandwiches first and then cook them all at once on a griddle.
