There are stories about a famous roasted chicken sandwich that led to engagements but, to be honest, this recipe may just rival any marriage-inducing chicken. At the very least, a sure way to someone’s heart is through this chicken sandwich. It’s worth finely grating Cheddar from a block instead of using the store-bought kind, since it melds nicely with the crispy cutlet crust. Looking to mix it up? Try provolone instead of cheddar, and swap a bitter lettuce like radicchio for the romaine.


  • 2 tablespoons pickle relish (not sweet)

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

  • 2 sesame seed hoagie rolls or a 12-inch-long demi baguette, split lengthwise

  • 2 Crispy Chicken Cutlets

  • 4 ounces sharp white Cheddar cheese, finely grated (about 1 cup)

  • 6 romaine lettuce leaves (preferably from lettuce heart)


  1. Stir relish, mustard, and mayonnaise in a small bowl and then spread mixture evenly on both halves of each roll.

  2. Place 1 cutlet on each roll (trimming cutlet, if needed, so it fits comfortably on the roll). Top each cutlet evenly with cheese and lettuce.

  3. Replace roll tops, halve, and serve.
