#48 - Chicken with Mushroom Sandwich

Yum


It has been a long weekend for me. I was actually sick over this last weekend and as a result, I had to cancel/postpone all my work commitments so that I could get some rest at home and focus on recovering soon. 

But as always, whenever I have the full day to myself at home (and this time it was 2 full days), I just could not stay out of the kitchen. I know I am such a contradicting person but it seems like baking/cooking has a healing effect on me. 

This was a really well-spent weekend for me. Not only did I get some rest (away from work), I also managed to accomplish trying out many food items on my To Bake/Cook List. I am so excited to share these recipes with all of you on MMC. I promise, you will soon see the following recipes coming up on MMC. 
  1. Peanut Butter Bread
  2. Stir Fry Celery with Pork
  3. Lemon Butter Chicken & Rice (One-Pot)
  4. Pineapple-Berry Lemonade Popsicles
  5. Bailey's Ice Cream
  6. Tuna Salad Burritos
  7. Laksa Fried Rice

Another good thing about a well-spent weekend is that you will wake up on a Monday morning, feeling great about the start of the week ahead. This was exactly how I felt this morning! 

To kick start the week ahead, I decided to put in a little more work into this morning's breakfast and this was what I came up with - Chicken with Mushroom Sandwich. Mind you, I added a little bit of wine into this recipe and the result was EXCELLENT. The splash of wine really built up the flavour and its fruity taste goes really well with my favourite, mushrooms! 


I feel so satisfied now(and ready for the rest of the day) after such a hearty and tasty sandwich! I totally see myself making more of such sandwiches very soon and in my next try, I am already decided that I shall be adding some cheese to go along with this recipe. Imagine the cheesy goodness together with the mushroom and chicken. Wow!

  2. This sounds delicious right now. Might just have to do this for dinner. We have a rotisserie chicken to use and this might be an easy way to use it up.

    1. I have to say that the butter that was used to sear the chicken does add on to the wonderful buttery taste as well :)

  8. Oh bummer, sorry to hear you weren't feeling well and hope that you've fully recuperated by now. I can just imagine how flavorful this sandwich would be with the bread soaking up all the lovely juices from the chicken and mushrooms.
