The holidays are quickly approaching! Are you ready? I am not sure if I am. I keep looking over my lists to make sure I have everything I need. These are the weeks when you need those quick meals. The other day I needed a quick-lunch and I only had a few items to toss together. I didn’t have any bread thawed out, but there were two hoagie rolls left over from husbands lunch packets. The deli roasted chicken had just enough that I could manage to do a little something and I think I had a few ounces of cheese I could shred.
(Imagine my frantic self rummaging through my fridge in a desperate attempt to feed the family!)
I tossed open the cupboard doors, pulled out some tomato soup for kiddo and myself along with a can of chicken noodle for the hubs and called it good.
I laid the hoagie rolls flat. I lightly spread a little butter on both and then separated all the deli roasted chicken slices. You know how they do like to clump together. I placed 2 on each piece of bread.
I had some cheddar and a little bit of mozzarella left so I shredded that up and sprinkled it on top of the chicken.
Once that was all nice and pretty I then added a little bit of oregano, parsley, salt and pepper.
Stuck it under the oven broiler for a few minutes until the cheese melted.
Kiddo was extremely happy with her fancy sandwich.

This has been our month for quick meals. However, I am pleased to report, we’ve been sticking to our roster of quick, healthy meals and haven’t reverted back to our junk food options.
I am so proud of you lady!
O my this looks delicious and so simple! Yay!
Oh thank you! If you try it, let me know how you like it.
I always think I have to make a big meal and I forget about the easy stuff that I can make in just a few minutes. Thanks for the reminder!
I am guilty of that as well, especially on weekends when kiddo is around. I always feel like meals have to be this big production. While I love cooking and don’t mind it, I needed the reminder that I can still cook something simple and be happy with that.
I think I may need to come over to your house and have you cook up some crazy off the wall/non planned meals! This looks amazing! I will have to try this soon.
Come on over Amanda!

Oh, I can seriously see this as a Super Bowl favorite.
You could also cut them up into smaller pieces. Add a pickle slice and a toothpick. Insta-snack!
