One thing I love to do is cook for my friends and family. So much so that is has sort of become my job during the holidays. Give me some music, a stocked kitchen, wine, and time and I'm your chef lol. This chicken sandwich was inspired by my favorite item on the Nordtrom Cafe's menu "The Santa Fe". If you have never had a Santa Fe before you are indeed missing out. We're talking seasoned thinly sliced grilled chicken, camerlized onions, sauteed veggies, & more! I love this sandwich so much I was inspired to recreate it at home and have added my own touches to it, making it just right. Not to mention my best friend & lunch buddy moved away so sitting in the cafe at Nordy's just isn't the same anymore :(. This sandwich is so quick, delicious, and easy to make you will want to invite some friends over to try it out. Check out my video "Lunch @ P's" filmed by my very good friend, photographer, & taste tester Kat. As well as the full recipe & directions below, feel free to drop a comment and let me know what you think. I also added a link for my electric, easy to clean, dishwasher safe grill, this is a buy you won't regret.
