Grilled Chicken Sandwiches on Low Carb Grain-free Sesame Seed Buns
This evening I put together a super quick dinner. I've done something to my right shoulder and am trying to give it a little rest and keep it as still as possible for a day or 2. I was in the mood for grilled chicken sandwiches -- they used to be one of my favorites, back when I ate "bread". Well, now that I have my Sesame Seed Bun recipe...I once again enjoy bread...low carb, wheat, grain and gluten-free bread. The best part about it is...it's not "consolation bread" which is what most other grain-free breads I've either made or bought have been to a certain extent. You know, "better than nothing bread"...but these buns stand on their own, so if you are really craving bread, buns, etc...just try these. I think you will be extremely pleased!
To make our sandwiches, I sliced 3 boneless chicken breasts down the center to make them thinner and more uniform for grilling, keeping them attached (basically butterflying them). I spritzed them with olive oil and seasoned them with McCormick's Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning and then grilled them for about 3-1/2 minutes per side over medium heat. While they were grilling, I split my sesame seed buns, rinsed and peeled off some fresh artisan romaine lettuce leaves, sliced a couple Campari tomatoes and then mixed a dollop of olive oil based mayo with some sriracha sauce to make a spicy spread for our sandwiches. I put our sandwiches together and was back in "real" grilled chicken sandwich heaven again! I didn't make any side dishes or anything else. For dessert I had a small slice of my Skillet Faux-nana Banana Walnut Bread along with a cup of Ciocattino Espresso that my youngest son gave me for Mother's Day to use in my Nespresso machine. I topped it with whipped cream and it was delicious -- better than anything you could find at Starbucks! Here's the link to my sandwich buns: Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns (where I recently made a turkey sandwich with them). Enjoy!
