The Annwich ( a flatbread chicken sandwich)


So I make this sandwich using the grill. My husband has named it the Annwhich (which if you know my husband is totally him. :) It's based on the Navajo sandwich from Cheesecake factory but... a bit better for you and pretty darn addictive if I do say so myself.

The Annwich

For the chicken:
3 chicken breasts
1 tbs olive oil
garlic powder
crushed rosemary

For the bread:
1 package store bought pizza dough divided in half
shredded asiago cheese just enough to sprinkle on the pizza dough while it cooks

For the spicy mayo:
1/2 a cup olive oil mayo
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried crushed rosemary
dash of goya adobo with pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder

For the final sandwich:
1 package arugula
1 avocado sliced thin

Start with the chicken. Toss the chicken in the olive oil and then add enough goya, garlic powder, and crushed rosemary so that both sides of the chicken are evenly coated. Grill the chicken for approximately 15 minutes ( around 7 minutes per side). Check to make sure the chicken is done you can always put it on for longer if need be.

For the bread. Oil the grill. Then stretch the pizza dough into two pieces, they can be any shape, but try to keep the anomalies symmetrical ( you're going to be cutting these in half later). Place the shaped pizza dough on the oiled grill. Sprinkle with asiago cheese. Grill for approx 5 minutes on one side ( you can take a peek and see if the grilling side is appropriately browned if not leave on for a little longer). Flip the dough and sprinkle this side with asiago cheese. Grill for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat when finished.

For the mayo, place all ingredients in a bowl and stir. I find that sometimes I need more chili powder or paprika, the proportions indicated above are approximate, season to personal taste.

Now you're ready to assemble the sandwich. Cut the bread in half whichever way the bread pieces will fit together best (this is where the symmetrical anomalies come in) spread with mayo. Line one side of the bread with chicken and then top with avocado pieces. Top with arugala and cover with other half of bread. Cut the sandwich in half. VOILA yummy Annwichy goodness.
