There’s a story about a famous roasted chicken recipe that has caused engagements. But, to be honest, this chicken sandwich recipe might just rival any marriage-inducing chicken. And at the very least, a sure way to someone’s heart is through this chicken sandwich. Think of it as an upscale, DIY version of your favorite fast-food chicken cutlet 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 the cheddar, and 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-in.-long demi baguette, split lengthwise
6 romaine lettuce leaves (preferably from lettuce heart)
How to Make It
Stir together relish, mustard, and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Spread mixture evenly on both halves of each roll. Place 1 cutlet on each roll (trimming cutlet, if needed, so it fits comfortably on roll). Top each cutlet evenly with cheese and lettuce. Replace roll tops, halve, and serve.
