Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Salad Sandwiches
March 29, 2011

Very interesting recipe, one I didn’t understand correctly until I started to prepare it. I should know better than to proceed on a recipe before reading it through! The idea of the red pepper really appealed to me (I took a shortcut and microwaved it) - but what threw me was when I (finally) noticed that the chicken was to be blended in the food processor along with the red pepper, mayo and cream. With all respect to the submitter, that did NOT appeal to me, although I understand that foods you grew up with you don’t necessarily think of as odd when others not familiar with it might. For me it was – I envisioned, basically, homemade baby food. So instead, I pureed the red pepper, mayonnaise and cream and it made an exquisitely beautiful sauce – but it was pretty blah tasting. I doctored it up with some garlic salt, a shot of Worcestershire sauce and some chopped green onion and not only was it an instant fix, it was wonderful. I mixed that sauce up with the chicken and I had the chunkiness and flavor I desired. I wanted something a little more interesting than just sandwiching it between two slices of white bread so I used it along with strips of bacon, fresh baby spinach and tortillas to make wraps – and they were AWESOME good! To complete the meal I served them with a hearty bowl of chicken minestrone.
