Attention sandwich lovers around the WORLD! I just made one of the best California Club Sandwich, ever!
OK, first off, I started with marinated Greek chicken breast. I let my chicken marinate overnight, but you can get away with marinating it for about an hour.
Secondly, I used an abundance of fresh veggies, buttered lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, and thinly sliced red onions.
Third, I made a feta mayonnaise spread that is divine and must be spread on hot toasted bread so it’s allowed to melt into the warm bread.
Lastly, I added black forest ham, bacon, and smoked turkey, and don’t forget the sharp cheddar cheese.
Yes, this sandwich is a beast! It’s not for the faint, but only for the true sandwich connoisseur who doesn’t mind waiting a minute, for a real deal sandwich feast.
Was it worth it? What do you think, I say YES!
