Grilled Dijon Chicken & Swiss Sandwich {Recipe Redux}

Are your sandwiches boring? Mine used to be. Until I realized that it does not take a lot to bump up the fun-factor. Try swapping the bread for something different (wraps, pitas, mini rounds, etc) use a unique cheese, add a punch of flavour with ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes, roasted peppers, pesto – I am a spice fan and loving pickled jalapeños right now.

Today’s recipe is a Grilled Dijon Chicken and Swiss Sandwich. I was going for a grilled cheese sandwich and decided to add a few extra veggies, Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard. YUM!



2 slices of bread – whole grain/rye/gluten free

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp margarine, spread over one side of bread facing outward

3-4 slices of roast chicken breast, thinly sliced

1-2 slices of Swiss cheese

5 leaves of spinach

2 Tbsp of raddichio

5 slices of cucumber

5 cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced


Directions for Sandwich Building:

  1. On the inside of two pieces of bread, spread Dijon mustard.
  2. Place a piece of Swiss cheese over the Dijon.
  3. Add in your veggie and meat slices.
  4. Spread a thin layer of margarine or butter on the outside-facing piece of bread.
  5. On medium-heat, place margarine-side facing down in a medium-sized fry pan. Heat sandwich about 3 minutes on one side before turning. If you have a panini press, you can also use this instead.
  6. Flip your sandwich so that the other side of the sandwich heats and browns lightly.
  7. Serve with ketchup and fresh cut veggies.
