Chicken Suiza Sandwiches are so insanely flavorful. They are a party in your mouth! Suiza is a Mexican flavor. It's often used in enchiladas (stay tuned for that amazing recipe that will be coming!) but sometimes in sandwiches too. It's tangy, slightly spicy, slightly sweet and the best kind of creamy. Not a creamy like thick go to sleep creamy, but creamy from plain greek yogurt (my favorite) or sour cream. If that flavor combination sounds strange, don't worry. It isn't. It's absolutely incredible! I love making these in the summertime when we have guests. They only take about 15 minutes to make and everyone always loves them.
How to Make Delicious Suiza Sandwiches:
Grab a rotisserie chicken or cooked and shredded chicken. Heat the oil in a fry pan over medium/ medium high heat. Cut up the red onion. I like to cut it into thin strips, then quarter those. Put the onion in the fry pan to sauté. Measure in the minced garlic. About 1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic will work in a pinch, but I highly recommend minced.
Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, until onion is softened. Pour in the lime juice honey and salsa and stir until hot. Stir in the Greek Yogurt. This recipe works best with low or full fat Greek yogurt. It helps it bind better and looks a little prettier. You can use non-fat but it will likely look a little clumpy. Now stir in the chicken.
Now turn on your broiler and stick your rolls in, insides facing up. Watch them carefully and take them out as soon as they start to turn golden. This step is important in avoiding a soggy bottom sandwich.
Take them out and spoon the chicken suiza mixture onto the bottom of the bun. Top with a slice of provolone cheese and return to the broiler to brown. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn! Remove from oven when cheese reaches the desired amount of doneness. We prefer ours to be nice and bubbly and browned. Remove from the oven and put the top of the bun on and eat immediately!
For leftovers, I highly recommend not making the sandwich ahead of time, or it WILL get soggy. Store the chicken suiza mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Or store in the freezer for up to 2 months.Print
