So one of my favorite places to go eat when we go out of town to go shopping is La Madeline. We don’t have one where I live. Boo! My favorite sandwich over there is the Chicken Parisian sandwich made with balsamic chicken.
Well since I can’t have that very much where I live, I decided to create my own. And I think I found a winner! Now mine is a little different than the La Madeline sandwich. First up, I used ciabatta bread I found in the grocery bakery section. Second, I decided to add a little roasted garlic mayo to mine to give it that extra something. Last, I cooked my chicken in the crockpot to make this super easy for any week night!
The result was one amazing sandwich! I can see myself making this one all the time this fall too!
