In the test kitchen… hungry with nothing to do… Check the fridges, and dry storage and came up with some chicken breasts, and a bit of this and that.

So, how about a nice spicy chicken Parmesan sandwich… I’m combining a bit of Italy with a bit of Mexico. I’m using adobo sauce in this recipe, and this sauce has, what I call, a lingering, persisting heat. But combined with the other ingredients blends together without too much heat.

Well, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

  7. Whisk together the adobo sauce, and eggs, and place into another bowl or plate.

  9. Chef’s Note: Salt & pepper the chicken before beginning the next step.

  14. Chef’s Tip: Allow the chicken breasts to rest for 10 minutes.

  19. Reserve the chicken; wipe out the skillet, and return to heat.
  20. Brush the butter on bother sides of the bread.
  21. Toast in the pan until nice and brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  22. Place a rack in the upper-middle position, and set the oven to broil.
  23. Spread half the mayo/adobo sauce over two of the toasted bread slices.
  24. Add a cutlet to each slice of bread.
