Cassie *


This is one delicious sandwich...don't take my word for it, try it sometime...another family favorite I threw together awhile back...just now got around to making it again, so decided I'd share...it's too good not to...

This can also be enjoyed as low carb without the Ciabatta...

How to Make Spiced Up Chicken Cordon Bleu / Spicy Garlic Mayo


  1. Mix all ingredients for mayonnaise in a small bowl; refrigerate till ready to use.
  2. Season prepared chicken breasts with garlic powder and chicken seasoning. ( or whatever seasoning you want to use )
  3. In a skillet; (I use my cast iron) - over medium heat, add oil for frying chicken breasts. Get nice and hot, then add the breasts. Cook on one side for about 5 minutes. Flip and cook other side for another 5 - 10 minutes or until juices run clear.
  4. While chicken is cooking; turn on broiler. Butter both sides of Ciabatta. Place on baking sheet and broil until starts to brown.
  5. When chicken is finished. Place a breast on each bottom half of bread. Add to each a slice of ham and cheese. Place back under broiler until cheese starts browning and bubbling. About 5 minutes.

    Or - in skillet you fried the chicken in; add the ham slice and cheese to each breast. Sprinkle some water in edge of pan - cover and steam to melt cheese.
  6. Take from oven, slather top of bun with garlic mayonnaise. Can add lettuce, onion, etc. Your choice.
