Tasty Thursdays: Celestial Summertime Chicken Sandwich

Summer is the best time of the year to go outside and grill some delicious food. When it comes to grilling three key items come to mind, burgers, hot dogs, and steaks! A chicken sandwich is the perfect substitution to a long summer filled with burgers and hot dogs. They are simple and easy to make. I came across a delightful recipe for a summertime chicken sandwich that made my mouth water the instant I read the ingredients; grilled chicken breast with a fresh cream cheese dill spread alongside tomatoes and lettuce on a toasty French bread, mmm! A cool glass of lemonade would be a perfect companion to this delightful meal. For this recipe you will need:
· 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

· 4 teaspoons dried dill weed, divided

· 4 tablespoons minced garlic, divided

· 2 tablespoons butter, softened

· 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

· 1 small tomato, diced

· 1 leaf lettuce

· 4 thick slices French bread
Simple yet satisfying! Enjoy…
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 2 teaspoons of dill, and 2 tablespoons of garlic. Set aside.

2. Melt about half of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Season chicken breast halves with remaining garlic and dill. Grill for about 8 minutes per side, or until the meat is firm and juices run clear. Remove from the grill, and set aside.

3. Spread the remaining butter onto one side of the slices of bread, and toast in the skillet until golden. Spread the cream cheese onto the other sides of the bread, and make sandwiches with the chicken breasts, lettuce, and tomato.
