I wanted to make a chicken sandwich with my latest homemade hot sauce, mango-habanero. I quickly Googled it as I knew I couldn’t be the first person to think of such a sandwich, and guess what? I wasn’t. Domino’s Pizza has a chicken habanero sandwich, so I used that as inspiration. I added some additional ingredients, and omitted cheddar cheese and jalapenos. Normally, I wouldn’t omit a pepper like jalapeno, but I thought the mango-habanero hot sauce was spicy enough, so they weren’t necessary.
We both thought the sandwiches were perfect. Nate said it met his threshold of spicy, but really enjoyed it. I’ll have to come up with more ways to use this homemade hot sauce, but for now, this was great!
Mango-Habanero Chicken Sandwiches
Source: Adapted from Domino’s Pizza
4 slices provolone
handful spinach leaves
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used taco seasoning on mine)
2 tbsp mango-habanero hot sauce
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits
1. Preheat broiler. Slice the hoagies down the center on top. Scoop out a little of the insides. Spray with olive oil, and layer cheese on each hoagie. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and hoagie is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
2. Remove from oven and add spinach leaves and shredded chicken. Drizzle 1 tbsp of hot sauce over the chicken. Add onion, pineapple bits and another layer of provolone cheese. Place under broiler until cheese is melted. Remove and let cool before serving.
