I have been craving a simple toasted chicken clubhouse sandwich for months now. Any restaurant that had a chicken clubhouse listed on their menu had their own version which just wasn’t what I wanted. I didn’t want a baked chicken breast with prosciutto, lettuce and roasted tomato on an rustic Italian roll with garlic and herb Aioli.
I just wanted the sandwich of my childhood—three pieces of white bread toasted and slathered with mayonnaise, thick slices of juicy tomato, thick slices of honey chicken breast carved from the roasted chicken topped with 4 slices of thick cut bacon and surrounded by crisp lettuce. I wanted the sandwich cut in 4 triangles and held together by extra long tooth picks. I made it myself.
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that give the greatest pleasure!
I remember this restaurant across the street from our high school where my friends and I used to occasionally go for lunch. The name escapes me and yes it was that long ago. They made this chicken clubhouse sandwich with a side order of coleslaw and the best fries and gravy. The restaurant was just a mom and pop greasy spoon but their food was delicious!
