Grilled Vegetable and Chicken Sandwiches
This post sponsored by Prime Fresh Delicatessen by Smithfield. All thoughts and opinions 100% mine.
We love to entertain on the weekend when we watch the big game. Many times our parties seem to last before lunch and into the evening, so I also need to have lunch prepared for our guests, as well as dinner. And because we’re usually by our outdoor kitchen, I like to have something quick and easy I can make on the grill that’s more exciting than just hot dogs.
One fun thing I came up with last weekend was to make veggie filled chicken sandwiches. These sandwiches are so delicious and easy to make. They are also full of fresh grilled veggies and a real crowd pleaser. These make the perfect “better for you” tailgating option that’s perfect for tailgating or just watching the game at home with friends and family.
In these sandwiches, I used Prime Fresh Delicatessen by Smithfield in Rotisserie Chicken. Prime Fresh delivers the convenient, fresh premium lunch meat we’ve all been looking for right in your grocer’s meat case.
And no more worrying about product freshness after opening for only a day or two. These are the highest quality, whole muscle meats so they stay fresh longer. They have a transparent film package that allows you to see the premium freshness and a re-sealable zip lock that keeps it fresh.
To start these sandwiches, I combine some balsamic and honey in a small saucepan and reduce it until I have a nice, thickened sauce.
Then I slice my vegetables. Here I have chosen zucchini, yellow squash, tomato and onion. You could also use eggplant, portobello mushrooms and bell peppers too. Next just brush the vegetables with a bit of olive oil and add salt and pepper.
Then grill vegetables over medium heat until tender crisp.
After vegetables are done, just brush the inside of the bread with olive oil and toast on the grill for 30 – 60 seconds or until toasted.
You can also heat Prime Fresh lunch meats on the grill too, for just about 30 seconds per side before adding to sandwich.
Next assemble sandwich by layering on Prime Fresh lunch meat, grilled vegetables and cheese. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and serve warm.
These make the perfect lunch or early dinner while watching the game with friends and family at home, or while tailgating. They are super easy to make and take no time at all. Serve these with a simple salad, your favorite chips and don’t forget some deli pickles too!
Prime Fresh comes in convenient half-pound packages, eight slices each. They are perfect for everyday lunches and quick dinners. There are also six great varieties which are all gluten free, and contain no MSG.
There’s a reason why Prime Fresh is the “#1 Fastest Growing Lunchmeat in the United States*”. Be sure to check out Prime Fresh Delicatessen by Smithfield and see the difference for yourself. You can find Prime Fresh in the refrigerated meat case in your grocery store.
